Senator GREENWOOD (VICTORIA) - I present the following petition from 305 citizens of Australia:

To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled: The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth:

(   1 ) that they oppose the Australian Government's recognition of the incorporation of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia into the Soviet Union;

(2)   that this act of recognition is against the principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights;

(   3 ) that the Government should appreciate that the Baltic States were unlawfully occupied in 1940 by the Soviet Union through using armed forces following the signing of a pact by Stalin and Hitler.

The petitioners therefore humbly pray that you will review this matter and you will rescind the decision.

Petition received and read.
