To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Mouse of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The petition of the undersigned respectfully showeth:

(i)   That the implementation of the Agreement on Ending the War and Restoring Peace in Vietnam ls essential.

(ii)   That the aforementioned Agreement provides for equal status between the Provisional Revolutionary Government and the Government of the Republic of (south) Vietnam.

(iii)   That the provisions of the aforementioned Agreement are being fundamentally violated by the Government of the Republic of Vietnam.

Your petitioners most humbly pray that the Australian Government:

(A)   immediately establish diplomatic relations with the Provisional Revolutionary Government of the Republic of Vietnam.

(B)   bring influence to bear in order to enable the implementation of the aforementioned Agreement. In particular, this demands the immediate release from prison of the political prisoners held by the Government of the Republic of Vietnam, to enable the 'third force* neutralists to effectively participate in the implementation of the aforementioned Agreement.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray. by Dr Cairns.

Petition received.
