Civil Unions under attack in Australian Capital Territory (ACT) March 29, 2006 1:10 PM

The government of the ACT is about to introduce laws which recognises same-sex civil unions and confers on them the same rights as marriage. The Federal Government has recently amended the Australian Marriage Act to prevent same-sex marriage and the Attorney General, Philip Ruddock, is now threatening to make another amendment to the Act which denies states and territories the right to confer same sex civil unions with marriage status. He has written to John Stanhope the Chief Minister of the ACT insisting that he amend the legislation, threatening him with more draconian measures from Canberra if he doesn't. Please write to the Attorney General and express your disgust at this outragous behaviour against human rights. This is a man who wears an Amnesty International badge in his lapel! remind him that the rest of the liberal democracies have taken positive steps and just in what regard you will hold Australia if he continues. https://www.ag.gov.au/agd/www/ministerruddockfeedback.nsf/Feedback Please also offer messages of support to John Stanhope: http://www.chiefminister.act.gov.au/ Thanks Martin D [ send  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
