To: President of the Republic of Italy, H.E. Giorgio Napolitano, Prime Minister of Italy On. Silvio Berlusconi, Minister of Foreign Affairs On. Franco Frattini cc: Presidents of the Foreign Commissions of the Italian Senate and Chamber of Deputies, and Senatore Alfredo Mantica WE, the undersigned, all being Italian citizens and/or residents of Australia, wish to express our strong opposition to the closure of the Consulates of Adelaide and Brisbane. The Consular network is a fundamental part of the Italian presence abroad. We believe that with the closure of the Adelaide and Brisbane consulates, Italian citizens and residents of Adelaide and Brisbane will not be able to maintain contact with the Italian State/authorities and they will not have their rights protected and they will not be able to comply with their duties. We urge you to review the decision and maintain the Consular posts of Adelaide and Brisbane as part of an efficient and modern diplomatic network in Australia. Noi, firmatari di questa petizione, cittadini italiani ed i residenti in Australia, esprimiamo forte opposizione alla chiusura dei Consolati di Adelaide e Brisbane. La rete consolare fa una parte fondamentale della presenza dello Stato italiano all'estero. Crediamo che con la chiusura dei Consolati di Adelaide e Brisbane, i cittadini italiani e i residenti di Adelaide e Brisbane non potranno far valere i propri diritti di cittadinanza e non potranno assolvere ai loro doveri. Chiediamo di modificare la decisione presa e di mantenere le strutture consolari di Adelaide e Brisbane come parte di una moderna e efficiente rete diplomatica in Australia.
