To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The petition of certain citizens respectfully showeth:

That we women of Australia feel the threat of the nuclear arms race to our world, our children and our future.

That the threat of nuclear war in Australia is greatly increased by the presence of foreign bases.

That we affirm Pine Gap near Alice Springs is one such key foreign communication base, is a crucial link in the arms race, used for locating targets and therefore a prime target in the event of nuclear war.

That we support the national womens' action to oppose the presence of Pine Gap and call for the removal of all foreign bases in Australia.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
