I just got this thought message from Michelle Place

Hi Clinton, I have to start by saying you are a legend! Super inspiring and very brave, what a challenge you have set yourself for such an important cause. I am a teacher and I have been showing the kids what you are doing and they are so keen to give you support! Today we played in the Aboriginal Power Cup and we have added your hashtag to our Guernsey to show our love and support for you. You are inspirational and a modern day hero to me. What you are doing is so significant and meaningful, and I have loved following your journey so far👏 ❤️👊💙👐

Thank you Michelle Place and thank you guys for supporting the walk for justice. Keep following us we just getting started on the walk.

“Clinton Pryor, 27, believes indigenous elders should be given full control of their communities.
Mr Pryor was involved in protests on Heirisson Island in Perth last year over the forced closure of WA indigenous communities when he decided to embark on foot to see Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.”

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.
