NZ group speaks out against visa

The Iwi n Aus group took to the corner of Victoria Avenue and Terrace Road, to make people aware of the subclass 444 visa.

The visa allows people to work and stay in Australia while remaining a New Zealand citizen, but it does not afford the same rights as Australian residents.

‘We want to show Australians that there is a real plight for people from New Zealand to have access to social security,’ group member Anne Wallace said.

Similar protests were held in states across Australia.
