Aussies rally for equality

Shortly after the Australian Labour Party voted to endorse marriage equality, over the objections of Prime Minister Julia Gillard, thousands of people took part in a previously scheduled march to Darling Habour in Sydney, and rallied outside the convention centre where the ALP was holding its meeting.

Several of the New Zealand Labour Party people I follow on Twitter have been attending the ALP conference as international observers. One of them, Jordan Carter—who ought to be a Labour MP right now, and almost certainly will be in 2014—Tweeted some photos, which he allowed me to share here. The photo below was taken inside the convention centre.

 Jordan has gone on to post the first of a series of posts on his blog, talking about “refounding Labour” in New Zealand. It’s an excellent post and well worth reading.
