To the Honourable the Speaker and members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled:

The humble petition of certain citizens of Australia respectfully showeth:

That they have been deeply disturbed by recent reports of dire famine in Ethiopia, but warmly welcome the moves already made by the Federal Government to provide emergency relief supplies to the area. However, they feel it important that further aid be provided in such measure and for such time as is necessary for the present crisis to be resolved.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the Australian Government send food, money, medical supplies and other available and needed forms of aid to help relieve the crisis situation which presently threatens the people of Ethiopia.

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

Petition received.
