Three same-sex couples staged an illegal wedding ceremony in Brisbane, Australia, on Saturday to protest the country's ban on marriage equality, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

"Sixty percent of Australians support same-sex marriage rights," said organizer Kat Henderson, who reported that between 600 and 1,000 people marched through Brisbane's central business district to call for marriage rights. "No one should deny [us] the right to choose whether or not they want to marry, who they want to marry or love."

Greens Queensland senate candidate Larissa Waters told the crowd that once parliament resumes, the Greens will introduce a marriage equality bill to the Senate. "This is just another example of how the community is really ahead of the government's thinking," she said.
