Uruguay: Libertarian Institute Activists in Gay Marriage Win

 A group of 23 LI activists say that  Uruguay has now legalized gay marriage and they expect smooth change as the President signs.

The group started in 1999 to develop coalitions, meet legislators and joined LI.

The group says they will continue focus on drug legalization and ballot access, and also ecological and legislative issues as they arise.

They expect this summer to meet with several legislators to examine statutes for obsolete or redundant measures that harm rights, and areas of tax and judical rationalization…and welcome the recent formation of a Liberal-libertarian party movement in Uruguay now at over 1000 supporters.

MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay—Uruguayan lawmakers voted to legalize gay marriage, making the South American country the third in the Americas to do so after Canada and Argentina.

The bill was approved by the Lower House with 71 of the 92 lawmakers present voting in favor Wednesday night. The Senate approved the legislation 23 votes to 8 earlier this month.
