Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore will join with Greens Senator Lee Rhiannon to take part in this year’s National Day of Action on August 1.
Starting with a rally on the steps of Town Hall and culminating in a mass illegal wedding outside the Labor Party’s national conference, the day is expected to draw hundreds of couples intent on pressuring the ALP to allow same-sex marriages.
Moore and Rhiannon, who have both previously expressed support for same-sex marriage reform, will speak on the day.
There is a glaring omission from the suite of same-sex law reform passed by the federal Government recently, Rhiannon said.
Labor and the Coalition still refuse to support same-sex marriage so Greens Senator Sarah Hanson-Young has introduced into the Senate a private member’s bill to end this discrimination. We can’t wait any longer for equality.
info: The National Day of Action will take place on August 1, from noon outside Sydney Town Hall.
