#Watch #Video #LGBT #Ireland #SameSexMarriage #Register #Vote #Referendum LGBT: Life Gets Better Together would like to thanks BeLonG To Youth Services for allowing us to upload this video to our page. more info: http://www.marriagequality.ie/ | check the register: www.checktheregister.ie The Republic of Ireland, which introduced civil partnerships in 2011, is set to vote next May on extending civil marriage to same-sex couples, with early polls suggesting a landslide victory for equality. However, referendums have a history of unpredictability in the country, due to a combination of low turnouts and powerful religious lobbies. Michael Barron of BeLonG To said: “We know that Ireland is ready for this change and that Irish young people really want a fair and equal society. “Irish young people have always been agents for progressive change and today we are reaching out to all young adults aged 18-25 to say – this is your opportunity to create the society the you want – this is your generation’s decision. “By registering to vote by 25th November and coming out to vote for civil marriage equality you will help our country turn over a new leaf and create the modern society that you deserve and can be proud of.” BeLonG To chairperson Anna Quigley added: “Young people have a pivotal role to play in the forthcoming referendum and shaping the future of Irish society. Voters in Ireland must register to vote by November 25 to be eligible to vote in next year’s equal marriage referendum.
