Marriage Equality: Put the bill!

Urgent appeal. Socialist Alliance needs to submit an updated list of over 1500 members to the Australian Electoral Commission to maintain our electoral registration and appear on the ballot at the next federal election. We're asking all existing members and those interested in joining to confirm your willingness to support our electoral enrolment by filling in this form.

Consistent polls have demonstrated the overwhelming popular support for Marriage Equality

Socialist Alliance calls on the parliament to immediately legislate for full marriage equality. The bill should be put and passed. We call on the ALP to bind its vote and on Liberal politicians to cross the floor.

Socialist Alliance opposes the proposed plebiscite because of: the huge public cost; the fact that it is an unnecessary delaying tactic; and the fact that the proposed question excludes many transgender and intersex people.

Nevertheless, if a plebiscite is called, we pledge to throw our full weight behind a "yes" campaign as a continuation of our longstanding efforts to achieve marriage equality.
