Ahead of the country’s upcoming vote on civil union rights
I suppose as being a young person I still find it hard to believe that in some countries equal rights are not in place. Or perhaps in all countries some aspects on equality are still not achieved! This is relating to ethnicity, gender and disability as well as gay rights.
I also find it interesting that, quote: ‘Civil unions have been on the Italian government’s agenda in some form or another since 1988, but this is the first time a law has a real chance of being approved.’ Why is that? Because the rest of Europe is accepting that it is wrong not for everyone to have equal rights? This is a positive in some respects because it shows how if some people, countries, lead the way others will follow by example?
Also they explained how they cannot go to the EU debating some topics when they have such a burden in their own country. So is the acceptance of civil unions just useful for their own politics??
