Marriage demonstrators got no media coverage

Marriage demonstrators got no media coverage

Last Sunday we had a march for the launch of Amnesty International’s campaign for a yes vote in the forthcoming marriage equality referendum. Media coverage? Nil.

It’s not that people didn’t show up, there was a very impressive crowd. We even had a proposal of marriage on stage. Why are anarchistic water protesters more worthy of attention than people who want to change our society for the better.
