Fearon welcomes Australian vote on marriage equality

15 November, 2017 - by Megan Fearon

Sinn Féin MLA Megan Fearon has welcomed a historic Yes vote in favour of marriage equality in a non-binding nationwide survey in Australia. 

The party’s equality spokesperson said:

“Following the historic vote in Australia we now have another of the largest countries in the world voting in favour of marriage equality.

"Although the vote itself is non-binding it should be welcomed as a progressive and forward thinking step.

"The denial of the right to marriage equality in the north of Ireland by the DUP, facilitated by the British government is discriminatory as it is available everywhere else on these islands. 

“Sinn Féin believe in and will continue to stand up for equality, respect, recognition and rights for all citizens."
