To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth-

That we believe that Australia's constitution is undemocratic and should be replaced by a democratic constitution. This new constitution should be drafted at a representative directly elected people's convention following extensive public debate, and then put to a referendum of the people.

The petitioners therefore humbly pray that the Parliament, as a matter of urgency, will help to promote such public debate and will arrange for the holding of such a people's convention and referendum.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray. by Mr Les Johnson.

Petition received.
