NEW ZEALAND: Youth Wings Of All Eight Major Parties Back Marriage

An encouraging development in New Zealand:
In a joint press conference outside Parliament today the youth wings of National, Labour, ACT, Mana, Maori, Greens, United Future and NZ First signed a banner in support of the bill which is expected to have its second reading on Wednesday.   Campaign for Marriage Equality spokesman Conrad Reyners said the united front from the youth political wings sent a clear message. "It's pretty clear the youth of New Zealand support fairness, they support love," Reyners said. Representatives for each party expressed their support for gay marriage, saying it was about equality and unity.
