Perth rallies for equal marriage

Issue 

Between three and four hundred people marched through the streets of Perth on November 24 in the latest rally for marriage equality.

Speakers noted that recent votes in federal parliament had not resulted in equal marriage rights in Australia yet, however, internationally and locally the momentum is building.

Local politicians Lynn MacLaren (Greens) and John Hyde (ALP) both congratulated protesters but advocated votes for their own parties as the way to ensure marriage equality is won. By contrast, Equal Love WA representatives put the emphasis on continued mobilisations to pressure the government for change.
