Now that the High Court has confirmed the postal vote on same-sex marriage can go ahead and people have started receiving their surveys I would like to remind all students who are eligible to do so, to participate fully in this democratic processes so your voice is heard.
For my own part, I will welcome the opportunity to register my longstanding support for same-sex marriage and trust that Australia will soon eliminate this particular form of discrimination.
Whatever your personal views on this issue it is so important that the debate be respectful. I would like to remind students that anyone feeling adversely affected by the wider debate on the plebiscite can seek support through the University’s Health and Counselling Services.
