You can speak now!

On Friday May 11, the New South Wales Upper House will consider a motion moved in support of same-sex marriage.

Similar motions have already been passed by parliaments in Tasmania and the Australian Capital Territory.

Australian Marriage Equality is providing a website through which you can urge NSW upper house members to support the motion, here:

Interestingly, the Liberal/National coalition has released its members to vote on the matter as an issue of conscience, rather than holding them to a pre-determined Party line, which increases the possibility of it passing.

How will conservative MPs vote? And what will be the ramifications at the Federal level, when this issue comes up for a vote in Canberra?
