Contact ALP national Conference delegates
This action alert was issued by Australian Marriage Equality on 28.7.09.
Urgent - Contact the ALP to voice your support for marriage equality TODAY!
Anti-gay groups are mobilising to have marriage equality taken off the agenda of the ALP National Conference which is being held THIS WEEKEND.
It's vital that supporters of equal marriage contact conference delegates ASAP urging them to support, or at least debate, same-sex marriage.
Australian Marriage Equality has put together the following list of delegates, as well as key points to make when contacting these delegates.
For more information contact Alex Greenwich on 0421 316 335 or Rodney Croome on 0409 010 668.
Five points you should make in your phone call or email:
1. You are one of the 60% of Australians who support same-sex marriage. Its 64% support when you look at just Labor voters (Galaxy poll, June 2009)
2. Discrimination in marriage is inconsistent with the ALP's stated opposition to discrimination and its principle of not pandering to prejudice (ALP National Platform, 2009)
3. Marriage in Australia is a civil institution, not a religious one (fmr Family Court Chief Justice, Alastair Nicholson)
4. Civil unions are not an adequate substitute for same-sex marriage
5. For all these reasons, the ALP needs to take action regarding discrimination in Australia's marriage laws. At a minimum the National Conference should debate marriage equality.
Anti-gay groups are very successful at mobilising large numbers of people at the last minute to thwart open and public discussion about equality issues like marriage. Supporters of marriage equality should make a phone call or send an email before 5pm on Wednesday 29 July.
Making a call is very easy. Simply tell the person who answers that you are calling to register your support for marriage equality with
Sending an email is also easy. Either copy the individual email address below, or copy the "email all" list to send a copy of your email to all the identified ALP conference delegates at once. Copy the five points into your email and include a personal message about why you think it's important for the ALP to debate equal marriage at its National Conference.
