To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives assembled in parliament:

This petition of citizens of Australia draws to the attention of the House the widespread concern and disquiet held by many Australians with the possibility of a US led attack on Iraq and Australia's involvement in such an action.

Your petitioners therefore request the House to:

· use its influence to dissuade the US Government from the threat of precipitate military action in Iraq;

· refrain from all support of such threats;

· continue with diplomatic efforts to reach a resolution of the problems of the region; and

· work through the United Nations, as the duly constituted international body, for building a secure basis for world peace.

by Mr Andren (from 455 citizens)
