Conservatives are discriminating and wasting tax money
The European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) has opened proceedings on the exclusion of same-sex couples from the civil registry offices where civil marriages are performed (Dietz & Suttasom v Austria). Over 99% of applications can’t make it to this stage. Austria has until 23 September 2015 to give reasons for relegating same-sex couples to the regional administrative offices. Rechtskomitee LAMBDA (RKL), Austria’s LGBT civil rights organisation, calls on the Conservative Party to end discrimination and the waste of tax money.

By their opposition to marriage equality conservatives risk marriage light for heterosexuals
The European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) has opened proceedings on the exclusion of opposite-gender couples (Ratzenböck & Seydl v Austria). Over 99% of applications can’t make it to this stage. Austria has until 25 June to give reasons for offering registered partnership solely to same-gender couples. 2013 the Court found exclusion of same-gender couples from registered partnership in Greece in violation of the European Convention of Human Rights (Vallianatos v Greece, Grand Chamber). Rechtskomitee LAMBDA (RKL), Austria’s LGBT civil rights organisation, reminds the Conservative Party that they, with continued opposition ot marriage equality, risk marriage light for heterosexuals.
