To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in the Parliament assembled:

  We the undersigned petitioners draw to the attention of the Senate the central role played by the arms trade in creating an environment in which armed conflict such as the Gulf War can occur.

  Your petitioners request that the Senate, in Parliament assembled, should demand that the Australian Government:

  (a)outlaw sales of armaments and arms-related technology to overseas organisations: government and private.

  (b)lobby internationally, including at the United Nations, for the banning of sales of armaments and arms-related technology.

  (c)cancel the AIDEX 91 arms bazaar.

  And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
