Why I said I’m doing it as a homeless man because I give up my house an move out by storing all my stuff in storage. So I have no home to go back to but start from the bottom after this walk. I taking one year off from work and only got three week of pay. But happen to know that I have a job to go back to and start over again. On top of that the only money I have is from the Crowd funding and I notes that only low class people have help and donates from the bottom of they heart thank you guys 🙂

No sponsors don’t want to sponsor my walk and i don’t know why because maybe I’m standing up for the low class people up against the rich and also I being complete ignored by the main stream media like channel 7 and channel 9 I don’t know why. But channel 7 copy and paste what I said to Allan Clarke who written my story why I’m doing this walk for justice. I like to thank channel SBS , NITV and people who want to do a story on my journey and what I’m doing by covering it.

So that why I’m doing this walk and say i’m a homeless man. I doing this walk as a homeless person to show that if I’m homeless and I’m standing up to the rich. Than you should too and help me by walking with me when I reach Canberra, share my post or donate to help me get there. I’m doing this as well because the love I have for my people, my country and this world. I believe the world we live in can be better than want it is now.

All I ask from people is not to get angry on my Facebook page and show some respect. If you don’t want to show respect I well block you because I don’t have time to read uneducated people when they don’t know that when I finish this walk it well show a new way for my people, for my country and for this world. So let come together and work on building this world and make it better for all o.k

Thank you Peace 🙂 🙂 :)”

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.
