National rallies tell PM Gillard and Tony Abbott it's time for marriage equality
Thousands of Australians of all ages and backgrounds have gathered around the country today for a National Day of Action to tell Julia Gillard and Tony Abbott it's time Australia had marriage equality.
"Ordinary Australians are giving the Labor and Coalition leaders a strong but positive message that it's time they removed discrimination from the Marriage Act," Greens' human rights spokesperson, Sen. Sarah Hanson-Young, said at the rally in Adelaide.
"Cupid doesn't discriminate in love and neither should our laws. It's time for love and marriage to be equal.
