To the Honourable The Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives:

This petition of a number of citizens of Australia draws to the attention of the House the existence of a document known as the Byron Bay Declaration, which was delivered personally into the hands of the Honourable Jenny Macklin, Minister for Indigenous Affairs, on the thirteenth day of February, 2009.

We therefore ask the House to respond openly to all Australians regarding the issues raised in the Declaration, including the undeclared state of war which the Declaration asserts that the Crown has been in since the Crown claimed sovereignty over the Land now known as Australia. Furthermore, we ask that a Treaty be drafted as soon as practicable, to end the war once and for all.

by Mrs Irwin (from 2 citizens)
