'Yes to equality' sticker, Bay Street, Ultimo

On Thursday I saw this sticker on a post box in Bay Street, near Broadway, outside the shopping centre. There had been the word ‘Yes’ scrawled on the pavement there during the marriage-equality postal survey the federal government held in September, October and November, in the characteristic script used by Arthur Stace to write the word ‘Eternity’ on Sydney pavements and buildings in the 30s and 40s. I wrote about it at the time. This sticker is a last hold-out for the successful push for change in the area. The sticker was printed by Green Left Weekly, an organisation in Sydney that publishes a newspaper that is sold on street corners by volunteers. They sell the paper outside the shopping centre sometimes.
