CANBERRANS ANGRY AT LACK OF ACTION ON SAME-SEX MARRIAGE

Hundreds of same-sex marriage supporters braved the cold outside Parliament House this morning, to voice their support for marriage equality.

It’s after the Liberal Party quashed the chance of having a free vote in Parliament, instead, sticking to a plebiscite.

The Government will resubmit its plebiscite plan to Parliament this week, but it’s likely to fail for a second time.

The next option would be a postal ballot in October.

Results would be in by November, and if most people vote “yes”, MP’s would have a free vote on the issue in December.

Ivan Hinton Teoh from Just Equal was on Ryan and Tanya this morning..

He was among the dozens of same-sex marriage supporters who gathered outside Parliament House..
