Senator BAUME (NEW SOUTH WALES) -I present the following petition from 7 citizens of Australia:

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

The undersigned men and women of Australia vigorously protest against your Government's reported provision of Government funds amounting to $150,000 to African Liberation Movements this year, which amounts to contravention of United Nations Charter and is direct interference in internal affairs of African countries. We are aghast that the Government of Australia should involve itself in furthering unrest and warfare between racial groups on the continent of Africa and direct public funds to this end, and we request that senators take up this matter with the Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs immediately.

Your petitioners humbly pray that senators in Parliament assembled will ensure that due account is taken of this petition and your petitioners, a' in duty bound, will ever pray.

Petition received and read.
