The Australian community wants marriage equality in our laws. The Greens get it. Julia & Tony, why don’t you?
Prime Minister Julia Gillard & Tony Abbott are standing in the way of marriage equality. Join thousands of Australians in calling for them to get out of the way.
Our pressure & the community campaign are changing hearts and minds! The Labor Party has given its members a free vote – but the Prime Minister still opposes marriage equality, and won’t lobby her members to support it. That means this still isn’t enough to secure equality. Without the Prime Minister’s vocal support – and without Tony Abbott giving his members a conscience vote – the Australian community’s push for marriage equality will not be realised. Sign our new petition now.
Prime Minister Julia Gillard and Opposition Leader Tony Abbott, As Australians, we want marriage equality in our laws. We want both of you to listen to your community and stop delaying the inevitable. Prime Minister Gillard, your opposition to marriage equality holds your MPs back from voting for it. Please, get on the right side of history and support equality. Mr Abbott, by not allowing all of your MPs a conscience vote, you are stopping them from voting according to their beliefs and the wishes of their communities - for marriage equality. Please allow all of your MPs a conscience vote when marriage equality is debated in Parliament this year. If you won't help by joining the movement for marriage equality, please get out of the way.
