The following excerpt is from an article that originally appeared on Christian Today

Thousands of people rallied around Australia on Saturday urging the legalisation of same-sex marriage, one week before final ballots can be submitted in a contentious postal survey on the issue that has divided the country.

The largest crowd was in Sydney, where organisers said between 5,000 and 10,000 people gathered in front of Central Station before marching along one of the city’s biggest roads to Victoria Park.

‘It’s a good reflection of the enthusiasm of people,’ Australian Marriage Equality’s Tiernan Brady said. ‘They are very determined, very positive and not complacent.’

Other rallies in favour of same-sex marriage were held in the northern city of Brisbane and the central hub of Alice Springs.

Rallies organised by the Coalition for Marriage, the lead campaigner against same-sex marriage, were also held across the country.
