Petitioning Tony Abbott, Australian Prime Minister

Do not override marriage equality in the ACT


The Australian Capital Territory intends to pass a law allowing same-sex couples to marry.

The Federal Government could attempt to veto this legislation despite the ACT Government recently being elected on a platform of passing it.

There is overwhelming support for this reform in the ACT and the Federal Government should respect the ACT's mandate to legislate in the best interests of their community.

We call on Tony Abbott and the Federal Government to respect the rights of the ACT, recognise the dignity of all relationships and let the Territory’s marriage equality law stand.
