Day 1 – a report from the Australian Labor Party conference
Oz Kiwi representatives are in Adelaide this weekend for the Australian Labor Party (ALP) National Conference.
Today we attended a number of Fringe events and spoke to the panelists afterwards. We’ve also spoken to a number of Labor candidates and Federal Members, building relationships and educating them on the issues for Kiwis living in Australia.
