I just received my Marriage Equality ballot paper in the letterbox, so make sure to tick the YES box and put it in the mail fast.

I vote YES because I believe everyone should have the right to make an official commitment to love.

FREMANTLE MARRIAGE EQUALITY RALLY

Posted in city of fremantle, community, Uncategorized by freoview on September 10, 2017

 

 

A good number of people attended the Fremantle MARRIAGE EQUALITY rally and concert in Pioneer Park on Saturday afternoon.

I did not stay on for the music, so just a few photos of the start of the event.

COLOURFUL FREO RAINBOW YES RALLY

Posted in city of fremantle, family, Uncategorized by freoview on August 25, 2017

 

yes

 

 

What a delightful Fremantle MARRIAGE EQUALITY YES! rally it was late this afternoon with many hundreds of people turning up.

There were a lot of families, some dogs, and all the colours of the rainbow.

The rally was organised by Labor federal MP Josh Wilson and supported by Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt.

My personal highlight was to see the Mayor’s oh so cute little baby daughter Aiofe at her first political rally with mum Emma.

FREO MARRIAGE EQUALITY RALLY TODAY!

Posted in city of fremantle, community, family, Uncategorized by freoview on August 25, 2017

 

Marriage equality Aug 25

 

The Fremantle MARRIAGE EQUALITY Rally is on at 5 pm today under the Rainbow container artwork, so come along if you want to support love.

It is a shame that what should be a minor issue has blown out of proportion. What’s the big deal of allowing same sex people to also express their commitment to each other?

It really does not affect anyone but them, as thousands of gays and lesbians already live together, bringing up children and making a contribution to our communities.

Love is a beautiful and positive thing and we should all support that.

Many churches around Australia have been expressing support for it, and those who don’t support it will not be forced to hold same sex marriage ceremonies.

The event is just opposite Cantonment Hill, so parking could be an issue. Best to come by bike or on foot, or park at the East Street jetty or near the Leftbank pub.

It should be a good feel, positive event about love, so come along!

YES! RAINBOW FLAG AT FREO TOWNHALL

rainbow flag

 

There is a big pro marriage equality rally under the Fremantle Rainbow sculpture on Friday at 5 pm, and Fremantle Council is flying the rainbow flag high as well.

Love is not sexist or gender bias. People who love each other should be able to marry, and it does not matter if they are same sex couples.

Voting YES matters a lot to very many people who want to commit themselves to their partner.

ENROL TO VOTE!

Only seven days left to enrol to vote for marriage equality, but also a good idea to do it for our Fremantle local council election, which is in October.

Don’t be lazy! We want everyone to have their say in Freo. Young and old, so please take part.

In other parts of the world they envy our democratic right to vote. It is a privilege and a civic duty. Do it!

FREO MARRIAGE EQUALITY RALLY

Posted in city of fremantle, community, family, Uncategorized by freoview on August 16, 2017

 

Marriage equality Aug 25

 

An early warning that there will be a marriage equality rally held in Fremantle on Friday week August 25 at 5 pm.

It will be under the Freo Rainbow container artwork at Canning Highway, opposite Cantonment Hill.

I support the rally and marriage equality, but question the location at that time of the day, as it will be dangerous crossing the very busy road during peak hour traffic.

I do appreciate the symbolism of the rainbow artwork, but is it really safe to have the rally there?
