PETITIONS - Foreign Affairs: Iraq

To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled. The Petition of the undersigned calls on the members of the Senate to support the Australian Democrats' motion opposing Australia's involvement in pre-emptive military action or a first strike, against Iraq.

We believe a first strike would undermine international law and create further regional and global insecurity.

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

by Senator Bartlett (from 600 citizens).
