To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia sheweth that whereas:

They consider that the people of the Philippines have been unjustly and corruptly defrauded of large sums of money by ex-President Ferdinand Marcos, his wife and their associates, that much of this ill-gotten wealth has been invested in countries outside the Philippines, including Australia, and that, in the interests of social justice, it should be returned to the Philippines, to be used for the benefit of its people.

Your petitioners therefore pray that your honourable House will:

Take all possible steps to repatriate to the control of the Philippine government all assets and financial interests that ex-President Marcos, his wife and their associates may have in Australia.

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