Dust off your placards from last year, or crack out the poster paints, this Saturday March 20, people will take to the streets to rally for same-sex marriage rights again.
Following the success of last year’s national day of action marches, which drew thousands in both Melbourne and Sydney, Community Action Against Homophobia, will again encourage people to hit the pavement for equality.
“March 20 is about sending a clear message to our government that enough is enough,” CAAH co-convenor Ben Cooper said.
“Either pass same-sex marriage or risk losing pink votes at the upcoming election.”
Fellow co-convenor Cat Rose added, “people are sick of being denied their basic human rights.
“I urge everyone to get out en masse and stand up for their rights now that it’s been demonstrated that our politicians won’t.”
“This isn’t going to be solved by parliamentary means alone,” Cooper added. “That’s why we all need to get out on the streets to demand our rights.
“It’s not acceptable that in this day and age that a whole sub group of people in our community are denied such a basic civil right.”
The march will begin at Town Hall from 1pm.
