“What do we want?”
“When do we want it?”
This was one of a couple of chants that was heard in Mackay on Saturday 6th October. The Mackay demonstration was a strong voice for change, and has certainly been noticed by opponents of marriage equality in Dawson.
It’s time that this voice was heard in Gladstone as well!
To that end, I’ve created a Facebook event and a Google+ Event as expressions of interest in holding a rally in Gladstone on 17th November this year. I’ve also started the Twitter hashtag #GetMEinAtFlynn (don’t forget to follow me @dcarmau)
I want to bring that voice to Gladstone QLD! Shout it from the rooftops and let it ring from Mount Larcom to Miriam Vale and over the mountains to Biloela – It’s time for marriage equality, and Ken O’Dowd, your electorate believes it too! It’s time for our representatives to not only represent us, but also to do the right thing and pass reform for Marriage Equality!
If you can come, or might be able to come, please go to those events and register your interest (and invite all your friends). If you can’t, please share the events with your friends and spread the word by Retweeting and Sharing! Don’t forget to contribute with ideas for chants, slogans, signs and any other ideas you might have for marches!
One drop raises the sea. Every voice adds to the call. Your contribution is not only asked for, but it is important. Democracy requires engagement.
As an added bonus, I’ll be available for autographs at the event! 😉 kidding. But I will be there. I hope you will be too!
Thankyou so much, everybody, for your support.
