From the other side of Europe, Estonian parliament was supposed to start the first reading of the 'cohabitation bill' which would, among other things, grant same-sex couples civil union-type rights. but the conservative rightwings are stalling on previous points of the agenda and it's now a half hour until midnight and they are still going at it.

ETA: REPORTING LIVE FROM THE SCENE! my friend is sitting in the canteen of Estonian parliament observing MPs drinking beer and following the world cup. Democratic process, folks!

ETA part deux: cohabitation bill passed first reading, troops went home around 6 am. breakfast party! I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS ON ITS WAY OF FINALLY HAPPENING IN MY LIFETIME IN MY COUNTRY!1!
