Yesterday, the government's wasteful, expensive, divisive, harmful and unnecessary plebiscite was put to a vote in the House of Representatives.
I'm proud to have voted against the bill.
My speech calling for marriage equality, earlier this year, can be found here:
Now, the bill is on its way to the Senate, where Labor Senators will vote against it.
I support marriage equality. I want to see a free vote, in the Parliament, on a bill to support marriage equality, as soon as possible.
I moved for a free vote earlier this year, in the week before Mardi Gras.
Now is the time to contact Coalition Senators, and ask them to oppose the plebiscite, and support marriage equality instead. GetUp! has a website that you can use:
The parliament should do its job and legislate for marriage equality.
