On Sunday, Germany’s Social Democrats (SPD) announced that they will launch a new push to legalize same-sex marriage in their country, Reuters reports.

SPD’s parliament leader Thomas Oppermann told Der Spiegel that his party would bring up the issue at the next meeting of the right-center coalition. They would argue for compensation of people charged under anti-homosexuality laws.

Germany’s Green party also supports the move. But the Christian Democratic Union still opposes same-sex marriage.

In a public statement, Family Minister Manuela Schwesig said, “It’s time for the conservatives to move on this issue. It must stop putting the brakes on modernization.”
