Norfolk Islanders Present Petition At UN - Andre Nobbs

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:12 pm on 27 April 2016

The residents of Norfolk Island have presented a petition to the United Nations accusing Australia of trying to recolonise their island. The petition was delivered on Monday, in a last-ditch attempt to help it retain its status as an autonomous territory. This comes after Australia ended the island's limited self-government in July last year. The island is set to become a regional council under the auspices of New South Wales. Andre Nobbs is part of the managment committee and is the former Norfolk Island Chief Minister.
