A rally in support of same-sex marriage held in Sydney, Australia has drawn record numbers of people this weekend ahead of the postal survey start. Over 20,000 people were drawn to the event making it one of the biggest marriage equality protests in the country to date. The exact number of people is not known but organizers claimed that it is recording and the largest ever. Cat Rose from Community Action Against Homophobia said that they were “blown away by the response”. “The force we’ve shown today puts us in a good stead to win this battle over the next couple of months,” Rose added. Bill Shorten, the leader of the opposition party in government said that it was crucial the law was changed at the event. “We’ve got one last mountain to climb before we make marriage equality a reality. Let’s climb it together, today,” he said.
