New Zealanders call for more rights in Australia

New Zealanders call for more rights in Australia

Updated 6 September 2013, 11:33 AEST

In the election this weekend, there will be one community in Australia feeling left-out.

There are more people migrating to Australia from New Zealand than from any other country but most don't enjoy the same rights as Australians.

Among them are many Pacific Islanders who have come to Australia via New Zealand hoping for better opportunities but are experiencing hardship instead.

Community leaders are now calling on the Australian government to change the way it treats New Zealanders.
