The council of the capital of Tasmania has unanimously adopted a motion calling on the federal government of Australia to allow same-sex couples to marry.
«Hobart City Council has confirmed that our city is inclusive, and supports everyone being treated fairly and equality,» said Australian Marriage Equality national director Rodney Croome in a statement.
«I hope other councils around Tasmania and the nation are inspired to follow Hobart’s lead.»
Other local governments have also adopted this motion as Geelong, Ballarat, Surf Coast, Byron Bay, Albury Wodonga, as well as smaller areas.
By cons, Launceston City Council rejected it.
