Thank the Senators Who Voted for a Plebiscite

Thank the Senators Who Voted for a Plebiscite

 

On November 7th, these 29 senators voted in favour of holding a plebiscite which would allow the Australian people to express their views on the definition of marriage. Unfortunately, they lost the vote, due to Labor’s decision to vote against it as a bloc.

You may like to contact these politicians who believe that the issue of marriage is important enough to warrant a people’s vote. For contact details, please visit the Parliament of Australia website. The senators who believe in the mechanisms of a democracy need our support, and those who don’t, need to know how we feel about that. (Emails are great, but this is a good opportunity to use social media to voice your opinion – with hashtags like #plebiscite or #marriagedebate , many more people will have the opportunity to see what you have to say.)
