I’m not a shame for who i’m, but I get worry about the future for my people and my people culture an lore.

The time for change need to happen but right now with a corporate government who run this country. They well keep on stopping us for what we want. If we ever going to save our culture, we must unity with other culture people who not original inhabitants. The more number we got they well fear that and they cannot stop us. When we come together as one, we can get want we what. Unity has come forward and time for change is here and now. Let make this happen together we can do this.

Day 162: 12pm

I’m walking why because I’m going to fight for justice for my people. I have walked and walking though a lot of community, station and homeland. I have sat down with my people, my elders, our children and my old people. I have listen, heard, felt the pain and seen the sadness in my people eye’s. I have seen the way how my people are living, and how things are not being done for them. But now I see a new hope and fight in our people and elders, tears of happiness when they see me walking into their communities. I now know I am not walking alone and my walk is not in vein as my people are joining me and standing and walking with me together we can do this to get justice for all of us.

While the cake was cooking, we had time to record Valerie were she was born. I had talk to people along this juoney who were born in the bush, but this was the first time I had the chance to record a person at the place where the birth tock place. Valerie was happy to show us and be recorded. She was very happy to be on her Country and where she was born. The mother of Valerie was to catch the train and then give birth, the tree is near an old camping ground, Valerie come first befor the train came.

Once again the stolen children were talked about again, Valerie family was not apart of the stolen generation, they told the same story’s of running and hiding when they could hear cars coming, they were never vaxinated, they came with the needles and ask were are the children, they off playing and running off somewhere, crow Valerie brother said we were hiding in the bushes looking at them till they were gone. This was the life of the children who escaped from the government people, coming to take the children from their family’s. They came back home.

[Admin Luke] Hi everyone, some exciting news:

We’ve finally launched our big crowd-fund to keep Clinton & the Walk For Justice Team going all the way to Canberra!!

As those who are following closely would know, the Justice Mobile is in need of some major repairs and we really need to make sure Garry’s rent back home gets paid for the rest of the walk.

Plus there is still a very long way left to go!

Clinton and the team left Matargarup last September and have walked all the way from Perth to Uluru, on to Coober Pedy and beyond. It’s been a long and hot walk but Clinton and the team keep pressing on. Along the way the team are spending time in Aboriginal communities; meeting with elders, hearing their stories, talking with school kids and community groups. Clinton will bring the words of these community members all the way to Canberra.

Please help keep the team going – donate & share today!! Our movement for justice continues to grow. Thank you for your support!
