Fearon urges support for marriage equality demo
Sinn Féin MLA Megan Fearon has called for everyone who supports equality and rights to attend this Saturday’s Marriage Equality demonstration in Belfast.
The Newry and Armagh MLA said: “Every year we see over 20,000 people attend the annual equality march in Belfast.
“I am calling on everyone who believes in the principles of equality and rights to attend this march and make it even bigger.
“Sinn Féin will again be taking part to stand up for equality, respect, recognition and rights for all citizens.
“There can be absolutely no place for sectarianism, racism, homophobia, misogyny or any sort of discrimination in our society.
“That is why we are committed to seeing the extension of equal marriage across the north, it is a simple request to afford people their rights.
“Sinn Féin will continue to stand up for the LGB&T communities and challenge prejudice wherever it arises.
“Anyone wishing to march with us are asked to assemble with us at Writer’s square at 2pm with the event itself commencing at 2.30pm.”
