The article highlights the responds of the church regarding the proposal of the United Nations Association of Australia on bilateral peace treaties (BPTs). In a meeting, a dozen people from an average suburb in Newcastle, New South Wales were talking about doing something that could affect international relations. The group decided to organize a petition about BPTs and send it the Federal Parliament through their local member. With this, the author opines that their move is something worth campaigning for. He notes that it has already shown itself as something which group of fairly average members of the Angelican Church were prepared actively to support. INSET: Both Sides Now.
