GGR: “This is a new justification - not a new Constitution!”

Equality Rights group GGR (Gib Gay Rights) yesterday staged a protest outside Convent Place at what it calls the “new Reformed Justification” to coincide with the second round of talks on Constitutional reform being held in Gibraltar.

The group unfurled a banner stating that “this is not a Constitution for all Gibraltarians, it is a justification for some to continue their practise of excluding others.”

Spokesman Felix Alvarez said:

“The proposed new Constitution is gravely deficient because it perpetuates the second-class citizenship of gay and lesbian Gibraltarians.

We reserve the right not to subscribe to the text of the new Constitution.

A new Gibraltar can’t be built on old injustices.”
