Australians are coming together like never before to ensure every couple is treated fairly under the law.
The right of adults to enter into consensual marriage is enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (Article 16).
No-one should be denied the right to marry the person they love because of their gender or sexuality. Love is love. Simple as that.
The Equality campaign
Amnesty is joining the Equality campaign and people all around the country fighting for marriage equality. It’s possible if we put enough pressure on our politicians and all work together.
This video tells the story of the Equality campaign: a diverse community of Australians working together to achieve marriage equality through a parliamentary vote. It features everyday Australians — families, couples, friends, young and old from all over Australia.
