    Australia is one of the most multicultural countries in the world.

    But latest figures show a quarter of the population is "intolerant" towards other cultures and ethnicities.

    A government-funded "human rights council" in Australia has launched a campaign to make Australians less racist.

    Al Jazeera’s Andrew Thomas reports from Sydney.
