To the Australian Senate:

We the undersigned call upon the Australian Government not to involve Australia in a war against Iraq.

There is no clear evidence that Iraq poses an immediate threat to Australia or any of our allies. There is no established link, between Iraq and the shameful attacks of September 11, 2001.

Democracy in Iraq cannot be enforced by war. Australia must play a part in diplomatic and peaceful solutions to this conflict, and, must help the Iraqi people move towards democracy.

There is no need for Australia to support or be involved in this conflict. We call upon you to put the interests of peace and the world community above those of the United. States.

by Senator Nettle (from 2,392 citizens).
