Action: Saltshakers asks that people write to Senator Cory Bernardi, who has been outspoken in this oppositition to same sex marriage and has been the target of intimidation and attacks. Saltshakers says the pressure led to Senator Bernardi resigning as parliamentary secretary. Saltshakers asks that you offer your support to him for his comments. Email senator.bernardi@aph.gov.au or go to his contact page.

Saltshakers also asks that you write to Tony Abbott asking him to reinstate Cori Bernardi and to stand for truth and not compromise. tony.abbott.mp@aph.gov.au
