Ireland: Thousands March for Marriage Equality in Dublin

irelandGay-rights activists held a march for marriage equality in Dublin. The Irish Times reports:

Up to 4,000 people marched in Dublin today for the right to marry. The 5th annual march for marriage equality was organised by the advocacy organisation LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) Noise. Max Krzyzanowski of LGBT Noise called on the Government to set a date for a referendum on same sex marriage. Though civil partnership legislation was enacted two years ago, legislation to allow for full marriage rights for same-sex couples would require a referendum.

A huge majority supports marriage equality in the country, but the government has yet to take action on it. Maybe with the recent passage of the marriage equality bill United Kingdom, this will change.
