Greens say homophobic fearmongering is disgusting

Media Release
Christine Milne 4 Sep 2013

Greens Leader Senator Christine Milne responds to anti-marriage equality ads that are being distributed around electorates:

"This kind of fear mongering is disgusting but it won't have the impact that it might've had twenty years ago. Australians have moved on. We are ready for equality and won't stand for this kind of blatant homophobia," Senator Milne said.

"We shouldn't be complacent though. There's a real risk of far-right anti-equality forces taking hold in the Senate if there isn't a strong Greens vote. The Greens in the Senate will stand up for full equality, every single MP, every vote, every time."
