The pain of no justice for young Elijah. It make me understand that I need to finish this walk to get justice for my people and young Elijah.

When we went to the memorial it was like a ghost town and you can feel a bad vibe because you can see why the people left because it got to do with fear, racism and hatred. I well be camping in Coolgardie tonight to start the walk about 20km out from Coolgardie before I make the walk to Kalgoorlie on Thursday morning.

When we get to Kalgoorlie on Thursday afternoon we well be camping at the memorial to show my people not to be a feared no more. I well fight for you all my people in Kalgoorlie and i well never stop until I get justice for young Elijah and everyone else in this country. It is time we get our justice and take back what was our from this government and this company who trying to rule us. Racism and hatred must be stop in this world. It time we stand together and fight for justice for all.”

I’m a Wajuk, Balardung, Kija and a Yulparitja man from the West of Australia. I will be walking across country from Matagarup/Heirrison Island in Perth to Parliament House in Canberra, following songlines and visiting communities along the way, where I will eventually be seeking audience with the Prime Minister and address the many injustices against the First Nations people of this land.

  1. Hello Clinton, I’m the cyclist from Perth to Kalgoorlie who stopped to talk with you about 30 kms from Boorabbin. I’m not sure how to donate to your walk, but I’ll find out.
    It seems to me that you are walking not only for Aboriginal people but also for all people who are decent and who want a future in which Nature is respected and no one hurts anyone. Best wishes.
