Jersey Equality March (1)
In continuation of our PREVIOUS POSTING as planned the March for Equality went ahead today and was a resounding success. Approximately 700 people turned out to show their dissatisfaction to our government's decision not to grant same sex couples equal rights (previous posting).
Below we offer our readers a quick glimpse of today's March and hope we have captured the positive mood of the event.
Congratulations to REFORM JERSEY for organising such a successful event in such short a time. An event which saw party divisions come together for a day to show support for our gay, Lesbian, and Transgender community.
This is the kind of inclusion we need in order for our government to move forward and into the 21st Century. Politicians from across the Political Divide willing to work with each-other for the common good of the Island and those they represent.
We plan on publishing a number of speeches, from the March/Parade in part two of this event. Speeches from across the political divide.
