Day 126: 9.30am

This is a photo from man name Elijah McColl who was protecting in the middle east for the right of Palestinian. He also wearing our flag. I have ask him why was you protecting for and this what he said. I was there in Feburary 2015 in a town called Bil’in (near Ramallah) in the Occupied West Bank (Palestine) which has been protesting weekly against the apartheid wall and settlements taking their land for over 10 years. I was taken there by the Israeli anarchists against the wall who attend every week. I wore the shirt as a sign of solidarity to indigenous movements during the protest. We were dispersed with tear gas, rubber coated steel bullets and live bullets during this time, but thankfully no one was hurt at this protest.

If you what to know more the info about Bil’in, the film Five Broken Cameras follows one of the men in the village as he filmed their struggle against the Israeli apartheid system. I would recommend following Iyad Burnat and Emad Burnat to keep up to date.

Day 127: 8am

Near the end of the day, no clouds in the sun set.

No clouds, but I do like how something has blocked the sun rays, to make this light shape. – Noonie

Day 127: 10.30am

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. Dear Clinton, I would like to donate $500 on behalf of Alastair Nicholson from Concerned Australians. He very generously donated this amount towards our group – Gurindji Stolen Generations descendants – to assist our protest at the NT government’s treatment of young Indigenous inmates at Don Dale and the Federal Indigenous Affairs Minister, Nigel Scullion’s apathetic response. We printed t-shirts and banner with the slogan and image ‘No Justice, Just Us’, which were worn and displayed during Scullion’s speech at the 50th anniversary of the Gurindji Walk-Off from Wave Hill, at Victoria River in August 2016, and at the Don Dale Inquiry in Darwin. By the time Alastair’s donation was received we had already covered the screen-printing and production costs, so rather than return Alastair’s donation, he has suggested we donate to a like-minded justice cause and we wish to donate it to you. I apologise for the long-winded explanation but wanted to fill you in on where the donation has come from – Concerned Australians via Gurindji Stolen Generations Descendants. We would also like to send you some t-shirts that you and your support team may wish to wear on your walk. Your action for justice for Indigenous people is inspirational – respect to you for doing this – and we wish you all the best with your endeavours. I will donate the $500 today and I hope to be able to walk with you when you get to Canberra. Marntaj.
