For May Day, People Rallied In Belfast To Push The Legalization Of Marriage Equality In Northern Ireland

This weekend, on the occasion of May Day, dozens of demonstrators gathered and marched through the streets of Belfast in Northern Ireland to push the legalization of marriage equality.

Indeed, Northern Ireland remains the last country in the UK not to have legalized marriage for same-sex couples yet, and although the oncoming elections, the Republican party Sinn Fein announced it would continue to push a bill to legalize equal marriage in Northern Ireland, the government promised meanwhile to continue to block the bill which had been yet approved by the Assembly last year.

The rally of this weekend is part of a campaign launched last month by LGBT organizations, trade unions, student unions and Amnesty International called the Love Equality campaign. The organizers have also announced that they would continue to mobilize and show up until marriage equality is legalized in Northern Ireland.
