婚姻守卫行动过半,我们有些好消息与大家分享!- Some great news as we pass the halfway mark of the campaign!

我们针对此次公投的婚姻守卫行动已经过半——这对澳洲华人守护联盟来说,真是一场如过山车般起伏的经历!

The campaign to defend marriage is now more than halfway through – and what a roller coaster ride it has been for us at ACF!

几周前,我们的联合创办人Pansy Lai医生勇敢地在电视广告中发言,向大家发出警告:“同性婚姻如在澳洲合法化,如‘安全学校’一类的同性恋性教育将变成必修课、家长们将失去决定权”。

数千同婚支持者们对此的反应是对Lai医生进行恐吓和威胁。他们签署请愿信要求取消Lai医生的行医资格,还对她的人身安全进行威胁。

Some weeks ago, our co-founder, Dr Pansy Lai, bravely appeared in a television advert warning that if same-sex marriage becomes law in Australia, gay sex education programs like “Safe Schools” could become compulsory and parents could lose the right to decide what their children are taught.

The response of thousands of “Yes” supporters was to threaten and intimidate Dr Lai. A petition was launched to have her doctor’s registration cancelled, and she received numerous threats to her safety.

而这一切都来自标榜“爱”和“宽容”、宣称同婚合法化不会带来任何其他后果的那一方。

All of this from the side of the campaign claiming they are all about “love” and “tolerance”, and that redefining marriage has no consequences.

在过去的几个星期里,尽管受到威胁,无数像Lai医生一样的人们用行动来守护我们的自由和权力,废寝忘食地工作着。我们感谢每一位以不同方式来支持我们的“反对票”行动的人。

然而这是一个漫长的行动——离澳洲数据统计局最后关闭这次公投的日期11月7号还有整整一个月的时间!

Despite the intimidation, Dr Lai is one of many people who have worked tirelessly over the past few weeks to defend our freedoms and rights, and we thank everyone who has helped with the “No” campaign in many different ways.

But this is a very, very long campaign – in fact, there is still a whole month to go before the ABS closes the ballot box on 7 November!

我们需要您的帮助,来保持已经取得的进展、将这场行动继续进行下去。

我们需要金钱上的支持,以继续在电视、报纸上做广告,并为在实战领域奋斗着的义工提供资源(比如信息单张、海报、服装等等)。

简单地说,我们需要确保每一个澳大利亚人都明白重新定义婚姻所带来的严重后果。

We need to keep the momentum going, and we need your help to do so.

We need financial support to keep advertising on TV and in newspapers, and to provide resources for those working in the field.

Basically, we need to ensure every Australian understands the serious consequences of redefining marriage.

在此,我们有一个重要的消息要告诉您!

我们的合作伙伴之一,澳大利亚婚姻联盟,得到一位慷慨的捐赠者的承诺:对在一周内婚姻联盟所得到的捐款,他将等额捐助!也就是说,您本周内给ACF的捐款也会自动翻倍。本活动截止时间为周一(10月9日)的晚上。

没错!即刻为澳洲华人家庭守护联盟捐款,我们将收到双倍的数额,我们的行动将双倍得益!

$50的捐款会变成$100, $100的捐款会变成$200,以此类推。

击这里护这个国家的婚姻、自由、家庭和家长权利出一份力!

And on that note, we have some great news to share with you!

A generous benefactor has promised to double every donation our partner organisation Marriage Alliance receives over the course of a week. And all donations to the campaign via ACF will automatically be doubled as part of this offer – but only until Monday evening.

That’s right, your donation to ACF today or during the weekend will have twice the impact!

A donation of $50 will become $100, a donation of $100 will become $200, and so on.

Please click here to stand up for true marriage, freedom, family and parental rights in this country!

感谢您参与造就澳大利亚的历史,抵抗重新定义婚姻、性别和家庭的全球性推动。

现在澳大利亚人们意识到,对我们社会最重要的制度之一进行重新定义,是具有深远的影响的。我们的“反对票”行动因此获得了很多的支持。

还有超过40%的澳大利亚人尚未投票——因此我们当下有极好的机会来影响这次公投!

Thank you for being a part of history here in Australia, against the global push to redefine marriage, gender and family.

Now that Australians are realising the far-reaching consequences of redefining one of our key social institutions, the “No” campaign has gained a lot of momentum.

Over 40% of Australians are yet to vote – so we have a huge opportunity to make a big impact right now!

您愿意捐出几元钱来帮助我们将这场行动继续下去吗?每一元捐款都将起到重要的作用!

Will you chip in to help keep the campaign running? Any amount you can afford will make a big difference!
