Protest Religious Exemptions Bill: No Right to Discriminate!
In October 2018, a YouGov Galaxy Poll found that around 80% of people oppose the right of religious schools to expel LGBTI students or sack LGBTI teachers. This is an even larger majority than the 61.6% of Australians who voted YES to marriage equality in the 2017 postal plebiscite.
Despite huge support for LGBTI rights, including among religious Australians, the Liberal government wants to further entrench and broaden discrimination in a so-called "Religious Freedoms" bill. Senior members of the Opposition including Chris Bowen have said that the Labor Party should support the bill.
This is nothing more than a bitter and vicious conservative minority attempting to roll back progress after our community's smashing victory for equality in 2017. Discrimination is unacceptable under the guise of religious belief or any other basis.
Join the protest on Saturday Oct 19 to tell parliament and the bigoted minority:
No right to discriminate!
End religious exemptions!
No to homophobia and transphobia!
