Ireland Approves Gay Marriage by Landslide Vote

Ireland Approves Gay Marriage by Landslide Vote

Ireland became the first country to legalize gay marriage.Yes Equality , the umbrella group that spearheaded the campaign posted “Today, we are more truly a nation of equals. The people of Ireland have exercised their Constitutional right and by direct vote they have said an emphatic ‘Yes’ to Equality. Ireland now joins twenty other countries where same-sex marriage has been made possible. Ireland is the first country in the world to do so by a vote of the people.” The official results were announced Saturday at a Dublin Castle press conference: Voter turnout in the majority Catholic nation was more than 60% with 1,201,607 voting in favor of the landmark referendum and 734,300 voting against. said Ríona Ní Fhlanghaile, an elections official. Opposition was largely organized by Catholic groups that focused on a message of protecting the traditional family but Ireland’s citizens voted in a landslide to legalize gay marriage, electoral officials announced Saturday — a stunningly lopsided result that illustrates what Catholic leaders and rights activists alike are calling a “social revolution.” Yes Equality says however the outcome has no bearing on surrogacy or adoption rights which they will seek to gain approval of next.

What Happened Tonight Doesn’t Reflect Freddie Grey or The Movement

What Happened Tonight Doesn’t Reflect Freddie Grey or The Movement

This is not what #FreddieGrey, his family or the people of #Baltimore are about. NOW THE NEWS will all be about tonight’s events and not about the events 15 days ago that ended in the death of Freddie Grey. A lost opportunity. #FAIL Education is the key to change.

Anna came by Right to Dream 2. They negotiated a price with the owner of the property to rent it and allow our homeless friends to stay there but the city is attempting to remove them. Anna was nearby at the local Occupy event and stopped to talk with us.
