Vote Yes to Civil Marriage on May 22nd

The Irish Socialist Network is calling on voters to vote Yes to the change to the Constitution. As a radical socialist organisation the ISN is opposed to all forms of discrimination, injustice, and inequality. By allowing the choice to access civil marriage for all regardless of their sexual orientation or gender is in line with the ISN’s vision for a society based on socialist values.

While the ISN fundamentally believes the only true way full equality for all citizens can be achieved is by the abolition of capitalism, as it is a system built on inequality, nonetheless extending the right to civil marriage to the LGBTQ community goes some way to ensuring equality. The ISN will continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with the LGBTQ community and the wider community for full equality.
