Equal Love’s ‘year of action’ for Marriage Amendment Act anniversary
Equal Love groups and Community Action Against Homophobia (CAAH) have pledged to fight on across the country to push Abbott back and win equal marriage rights, despite the recent striking down of same-sex marriage in the ACT by the High Court.
As 2014 will mark the ten year anniversary of the Howard government’s amendment to the Marriage Act, Equal Love Melbourne have announced a year of action and are planning events with the main rally on August 16 next year to mark the anniversary.
“The ACT gave us a small taste of what we wanted to see,” said Cat Rose on behalf of CAAH and Equal Love.
“But we were going to have keep fighting for equal rights whatever happened, and that's just what we are going to do now. August 13 next year will mark 10 years since the Howard government passed the Marriage Amendment Act saying that marriage was to be between one man and one woman only.
“We’re going to fight Abbott all the way, and are looking forward to seeing many others do the same.”
