‘Enough is enough’ march

Concern that the 2004 Civil Union legislation giving official recognition to same-sex relationships undermined traditional marriage led the Destiny church to march on Parliament. The fundamentalist church introduced a new element to street marches: T-shirts with slogans. As well as helping to get their message across to the public, the T-shirts helped to provide marchers with a common sense of identity and purpose.
