To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled.

The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth that: Any proposal to establish Memorials to Peace, Memorials to the so-called `Aboriginal War' and to anti-war activists and other like causes at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra would desecrate the Memorial as a fitting and solemn monument to those who served in Australia's Armed Forces and to those who died in defence of their country.

Your petitioners humbly pray that your honourable House will act to prevent anything which would desecrate the nation's memorial to Australia's former servicemen and women and war dead.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
