Report: Right to sign language being denied to New Zealanders

Paul Gibson on One News
A report from a Human Rights Commission says thousands of New Zealanders are being denied a basic human right to sign language. The full report and its recommendations will be presented to the Parliament later today. New Zealand made sign language an official language seven years ago. One News has a video interview with Disability Rights Commissioner Paul Gibson about the report here.  No captions but there is a text of the interview. You can see a sign language video on the report here.
