Update 7 November 2016: Great news: The plebiscite on marriage equality has been defeated for good after the Senate voted no on the legislation. All Out members helped stop this most pointless vote in the world and cleared the path to equality. Now to bring on a parliamentary vote on marriage equality!
72% of Australians believe equal marriage is the way to go. Most politicians believe it. The Prime Minister believes it.
So, why does the Australian government want to spend US $120 million to put that decision to a public vote? Nobody really knows, but what is clear is that a plebiscite will give anti-gay haters a great chance to spread their lies and hurt Australian LGBT people.
Very soon, the Australian government will decide if they will have an expensive, unnecessary vote on marriage equality. We can stop this madness, but it will take thousands of us to shame them and show the world how outrageous this decision would be.
Sign the petition and tell Australia: do not host the most stupid vote in the world.
