Croatian activists promote referendum to define marriage as male-female union
May 20, 2013
Pro-family activists in Croatia have collected well over 200,000 signatures on a petition calling for a referendum to amend the country’s constitution and define marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
Organizers of the petition drive are optimistic that they will collect signatures from 450,000 people—10% of the country’s eligible voters— in time to put the referendum on the ballot. The measure is opposed by the government, which has indicated support for legal recognition of same-sex unions.
