To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled:

The petition of the Undersigned shows:

.That the Special Broadcasting Service (SBS Television) continues to air bias reports against the Republics of Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina and against members of these communities.

.That SBS continues to air Serbian programs but fails to give equal air time to programs from the Republics of Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Your Petitioners therefore request the House to:

.Take appropriate action to investigate the bias and ensure that, as a publicly funded station, SBS treats all communities equally, fairly and without bias.
