Gay rights activists chained to Dail
Gay rights activists chained themselves to the gates of Dail Eireann yesterday in protest at the Government's proposed Civil Partnership Bill.
Using chains, members of the pressure group, Equals, locked themselves onto the main gates of Government buildings.
They flew a rainbow flag with the words “Marriage Rights Are Equal Rights”.
The group believes that the Government’s proposed Civil Partnership Bill will create a two-tier society that would see gay people and their families treated as second class citizens.
