Foreign Aid Budget

To the Federal Senate:

We, the undersigned, express our concern at revelations that "environmental" NGO's are using our taxpayer dollars through AUSaid funds to promote a radical ideological program and fund political activities domestically, and anti-development programs overseas.

Under no circumstances should the Australian foreign aid budget be used to promote an ideological agenda, and we call on an immediate suspension of all funding for environmental NGOs.

By Senator Ryan (from 998 citizens).

Petition received.
