GATHERING OUTSIDE CYPRUS PARLIAMENT TO SUPPORT CIVIL UNION
TODAY, THURSDAY, 26 NOVEMBER, AT 16:00 CYPRUS PARLIAMENT VOTES FOR THE CIVIL UNION
This Thursday, 26th of November, the Cyprus House of Representatives will finally vote for the Civil Union Bill.
This bill has been a major goal of the LGBTI community, for the past few years; as we consider it to be the first step towards achieving our claim for equal rights for the LGBTI community.
We are optimistic, and hope that the MPs, regardless of parties, will rise to the occasion and stand in support of human rights; thus collectively casting their votes in favor of this Civil Union Bill.
WE CALL TO ALL, LGBTIs or not, allies and friends, and all those who believe in Human Rights, TO STAND ALONGSIDE ACCEPT AT THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES AT 16:00, in order to send a message to the MPs, that Cyprus’ society, to which LGBTI are an equal part of, stands on the frontline and is watching them as they make this decision.
We are here to encourage them to make the right move: to respect the lives of all citizens, hear our needs, and realize that their role is not to maintain an idle society, but rather to improve it and inspire its progress.
We look forward to sharing with you the joy of accomplishing this major goal, and the successful launch of an ongoing struggle to achieve absolute equality for every single citizen of this country.
PS: Should we achieve the positive outcome we are hoping for, the celebration will take place on the same day (Thursday, 26th of November) at ELEFTHERIA SQUARE IN NICOSIA, at 20:00. Bring your friends, THIS THURSDAY WE SHALL BE CELEBRATING!
