To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled.

We the undersigned in this Petition call on Members of the Senate to support the following.

1. Opposing Australia's involvement in pre-emotive military action or first strike, against Iraq.

2. We also call on the Government to pursue diplomatic initiatives towards disarmament in Iraq and worldwide.

3. We want to see the international community working together through the United Nations to achieve a diplomatic solution to the Iraqi question. It is important for the stability of the world that the authority of the United Nations and its Security Council is upheld, and individual Governments be discouraged from acting unilaterally.

This petition comes from concerned parishioners of St John the Baptist Anglican Church, Lilydale, Victoria.

by Senator Calvert (from 50 citizens).
