Switzerland: Yes vote on same-sex marriage a 'historic' moment

Responding to news that people in Switzerland have voted in a referendum to make same-sex marriage legal, Alexandra Karle, Director of Amnesty Switzerland, said:

“Yesterday’s vote in giving same-sex couples the right to marriage and all the rights that go with it, including rights to adopt children, is an important and long overdue step towards equality.

“This historic vote sends a clear signal that LGBT+ people have the same rights as everyone else.”
