That this Synod recognising the threat to world peace arising from poverty and racism, and believing that the injustices arising from these are contrary to the will of God, is glad to be involved as a member church in the Development Programme of the Australian Council of Churches, and asks every diocese to investigate the status, economic and social, of the Aborigines within its boundaries, and to take whatever action is possible to rectify such injustices as may be found,

(The Archbishop of Melbourne, 24.9.69)
