Marriage Equality for All Australians
Petition Background (Preamble):
This petition is encouraging Prime Minister Julia Gillard to make Marriage Equality a policy issue at the Australian Labor Party National Conference, and not just allow a conscience vote.
It is important that we collect as many signatures as we can.. and make Marriage Equality something that is real for the many same sex attracted Australians, who remain second class citizens in our own country.
We urge Ms Gillard not to settle for a conscience vote as this will fail in the House of Representatives with a minority government.
This petition is about the right for same sex attracted people to make the choice of how they want to legally and formally have relationships recognised, and not something that should be dictated by the state.
The Marriage Equality for All Australians petition to Julia Gillard, Prime Minister of Australia was written by Pete Dillon and is in the category Civil Rights at GoPetition. Contact author here.
