StarOnline on 18th March 2012:
“Lismore’s gay and lesbian community has grounded a truck displaying signage with anti-gay messages which warn of the dangers of same-sex marriage to children.
Locals staged a protest throughout the night and this morning, blockading the truck by parking another vehicle in front it while around 10 – 15 protesters sat behind it to demand the signage be taken down.
Overnight, slogans featuring the words ‘equal love’ and ‘love not hate’ were graffitied over the truck’s signage and the vehicle was covered with coloured streamers and glitter.
A local demonstrator, who requested not to be named, said the protest was not formally planned but was a, “groundswell community response.”
“There were a lot of families there who were distressed and offended by the message,” she told the Star Observer.
“This truck has been travelling the state and no-one is doing anything about it.”
