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

  We, the citizens of Australia and custodians of the Earth, draw to the attention of the House our concern at the continued use of genetic engineering and cloning of human beings, animals, plant life, microbes and foods, along with the unknown consequences to the Earth's natural life forms and environment, in order for individuals and multinational companies to patent and own the food resources of the world.

  We request you to pass laws prohibiting the continued use of genetic engineering and cloning of human beings, animals, plant life, microbes and foods. We want you to protect humanity from the patenting and owning, by individuals and large corporate bodies, of unnatural life forms.
