‘Vote no’ message appears in Sydney skies; responsible group’s funds now frozen, by The Australian.
The words “vote no” appeared four times over the city on Sunday morning, a day after the Coalition for Marriage launched its campaign against same-sex marriage.
The message appears to have been funded through a Go Fund Me page which raised more than $2500.
The page, whose author was not identified, declared it was “time for traditional Australian’s (sic) to take a stand”.
“It’s time we all sent a clear message that we will not put up with our way of life been deconstructed any further,” it said.
The author claimed opponents to same-sex marriage had been “bullied into silence” and “condemned” for their views.
One woman donated $1000 to the cause.
The page had been flooded with abusive comments by Sunday afternoon. “I feel sorry for all of you,” one woman wrote.
“What an awful way to live your lives. I can’t imagine being so hateful.” Twitter users posted similar condemnation of the skywriting message.
The author later announced the money had been frozen by the website “until we give our names and locations”.
