Skywriting over Sydney tells Australians to ‘Vote No’ to same-sex marriage

Skywriting across Sydney urges people to vote no for marriage equality

Skywriting appeared over Sydney today (17 September) to encourage Australians to ‘Vote No’ to marriage equality.

Australians are currently voting in a expensive and divisive postal vote on same-sex marriage. They have until 27 October to post their votes back, with results announced 15 November.

But the ‘No’ campaign ramped up their attempts to sway people against same-sex marriage in various locations across Sydney.

A GoFundMe page urged people to donate money for the campaign: ‘It’s time for traditional Australian’s (sic) to take a stand!

‘We [are] bullied into silence, condemned for our views and ignored and vilified by the media. Enough is enough!

‘Be part of the movement to spray the VOTE NO message into our beautiful sky,’ it encouraged.

‘Vote [yes] no[w]’

Then people started getting creative with the skywriting, turning it into messages of support for the ‘Yes’ campaign.
