A Melbourne man who says he “felt like an extraterrestrial in a different place” is now seeking the Australian government’s help to explain what it is like to be an Australian citizen.
Key points:Mark Coughlan says he has a hard time understanding why he is not an Australian”He has never felt the need to be Australian,” Mr Coughan said.
He is now appealing to the Federal Government to do something about the “problem” Mr Croughan said he has had for years, and is considering filing a complaint to the Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC).
“I don’t know what I’m doing wrong,” he said.
“I feel I am being discriminated against in the way I am treated here in Australia, I don’t understand why.”
Mr Coughran is a former teacher who had been living in the city for more than 10 years, before moving to Queensland last year.
“My whole life I have been an Australian, and my whole life in this country has been about wanting to be treated like one,” he told news.com.au.
“This is something that has been on my mind for a long time.
It’s not just the fact I am not an American citizen.”
It’s just that I don-I don- I don have a hard-time understanding why I am never being treated as one.
“What I’m trying to do is say to the Government that if I can’t be treated as an Australian then I need to look for somewhere else to live, that I need help, I need support.”
If there’s no support I will just have to go and look for a place to live.
“Mr D’Aloisio said his main motivation for going to Australia was to become a better Australian citizen, but that he was now seeking help to understand why he was not treated as a citizen.
He said he was recently told he would have to leave the country if he did not “complete a three-year residency program” in Australia.”
That’s the only reason I’m here,” he explained.”
So I’m asking the Government to help me, because I don.t understand why I’m not being treated like a citizen, and it’s just like any other country, but in Australia.
