Day 307: 6am

Friday 14th July. On our way to Eden.

The mountains were covered in a smoke haze in the distance. The opening in the clouds aloud the sun to beam the light down, also along the slope.

That evening we had a visit by our two walkers Moureen and Ileine (hope my spelling in right) sister’s. Once again a story of a life in the bush to evade the Government process of taking children away.

Then came their story of life on their Country and the struggle with Government over the land on their Country. The same process and talk from Perth to Cann River. I had also received a photo to pass on. I have chosen this opportunity to pass it on.

The photo is a heart with the First People’s, Colours, of the First Nations of this Continent. The heart represents the Mother’s love. Mother to children, children to Mother and one of Country and the Earth. Culture. The impact of the Empire is still been used today, the Mother’s are still suffering today.

Theses two sisters, soft speaking women talk and speak the same, as all the people across the Continent. A great Continent of people’s with, an out dated Government values, that are not representing the people. – Noonie

Day 240: 5pm

I been thinking about it all day today and I’m going do it. Just going to let everyone know after leaving Melbourne and walking to Sydney on the coast line and then on to Canberra. I have decided that I going to get a bag of Forrest seed and take it with me. So I can planet Forrest seed on the coast line all the way to Sydney where i be walking than planet seed from Sydney all the way to Canberra.

So in a couple of year this Forrest seed well grow into a Forrest tree. It be a trail of Forrest tree I have planet from Melbourne to Sydney on the coast than from Sydney to Canberra a trail. In a couple of year time I be retracting the walk again going over it. But in that time I be driving and i going plant tree again from Perth all the way to Melbourne. So From Perth to Kalgoorlie I be planting Forrest seed. Then from Kalgoorlie to port August it well be oranges and apples seed. Than from port Augusta to Melbourne it well be Forrest seed again.

So in couple of year time it well be a trail of tree from Perth all they way to Canberra showing people and future generation that I walk it thought that way and when you look it up on good map you well see a line of tree that well show you i walk it that way and i have planet them and on top it well look like a snake. I just what to give something back to this world and do it for the planet and wildlife.

On top if people get lost in the desert area they have a line full of trees of Oranges and apple to eat and it well help people with fluid. So I going do this from Melbourne to Sydney than on to Canberra I be planting a line full of Forrest seed and I going to plant this seed 1km a part. I wish I did this at the start but that o.k

What you guys think of this idea, I just what to give something back to his world before I die.

Day 240: 9pm

[Admin Toby] On this day 9th May 1927 “Jimmy Clements and John Noble, made a big effort to turn up for the opening of the provisional parliament house in Canberra nine decades ago.

The Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House has marked the 90th anniversary with a special exhibition, featuring research by its historian Stephanie Pfennigwerth, on the two Indigenous men. Clements (Nangar or Yangar) and Noble were Wiradjuri men from southern New South Wales, both aged about 80.

Each walked at least 150km to the Federal Capital Territory before the arrival of the Duke and Duchess of York (later King George VI and Queen Elizabeth), who formally opened the new federal parliament on 9 May 1927.

They were well-known throughout New South Wales and the capital territory.

Non-Indigenous people knew Clements as “King Billy”, consistent with the condescending settler tradition of bestowing royal title upon blackfellas they considered compliant, important, peaceful or useful. He was a respected elder and Lore man – a “clever man” – who performed Wiradjuri “burbong” (initiation), and a showman with the boomerang and spear.

Noble, also a clever man, was, like Clements, a renowned performer at country shows and football matches with boomerangs. He liked to say things were “marvellous”.

Noble has shorter hair and a more closely cropped beard. This certainly describes Clements and paints a man whose act was performative – letting it be known sovereignty was never ceded, eyeballing the duke and courting of media attention.

The National Archives of Australia describes it as “possibly the first recorded instance of Aboriginal protest at Parliament House in Canberra”. It was the precursor to so much activism – from the 1938 Day of Mourning, the fight for recognition and much else in 1967, and the ongoing battle for land rights that manifested with the enduring tent embassy, just across the road, on Australia Day 1972.

The sign out front reads: Sovereignty never ceded.”

Day 241: 10am

We have left Coonalpyn and on our way out. – Noonie


Day 241: 10.30am

This illegal foreign government now attacking my country men and country women in two different way to take away our sovereign right and giving us less power over our lands.

One way is that this government is spending million of dollars of tax payer money on this recognition campaign. It to make people of Australia none first nation people think we what recognition and they doing this by showing you on our first nation football player, TV show and using our own people in political that we support recognition and that Australia should vote for it so we can have rights an be part of the constitution.

Put little you many know is that when my people come a part of a foreign constitution that was not from here we become British subject and what it dose it take away our sovereign right. My people what to let everyone know that we do not what recognition and we don’t support it. They a liein to everyone saying we support it but we don’t. We a sovereign people of this land and we what to keep our sovereign right and they are trying to take it away thought this recognition campaign you see on T.V with letter of R.

Second of all as you many know couple month back noongar won native title back thought the federal court and stop a deal between western Australia governments and South west land sea council. What it was is the western Australia government was trying to take away our native title in south west sell it of for 1.3 billion dollar and was trying to take our right to land an sovereign right way.

But back at home in Perth our people stood up and said no to this deal. Our people said we not give away our right for 1.3billion dollar and we going to keep our land. So noongar took western Australia government and South west land sea council to court and won. It took a year before hearing we won in court. But little we know is that the federal government was watching this case known that the western Australia was going to lose this case.

After a week later the federal court said native title stay and thought out the ILUA meaning Indigenous Land use agreement out the window ad native title stay in south west. A week later federal government in Canberra when on TV announced they was going to water down native title and give mining company more protection on land from native title. We what land right not mining Right.

The federal government in Canberra knew they was going to lose this case and now they trying to water down native title across Australia. So they can give more power to billion air over mining the land. What world are we living. What this government meat to be for the people or for this billion air. To me this government has lose it way and forgot who they mean to repcent when voted in.

So now you know this government is not for it people they for billion air and they attack my people in two different way. To take away our sovereign right and destroy native title a cross Australia to give more protection to billion air mining company.

This has to stop and now you know.

Day 241: 8.30pm

As Many of you may already know or may not know I am Clinton Pryor “The Spirit Walker”.

I started my “Walk for Justice” on the 8th of September 2016, Leaving Perth I started of walking for the justice of my people for the Government forcing of their communities.

It became apparent very quickly that People of all backgrounds are suffering from the long treasonous hand of this corrupted corporate Government, this has now taken my walk to a complete new level and the walk for justice is now a walk for everyone in this country to come together and make a stand against this Government to have them removed or under control by culture council. To allow us to start again for the people and the land so that there will be a safe place for all our children to come and always be run by the people with a governing culture council to oversee and keep the government on the correct path so that what has happened here to our people can never happen again!

There will be a meeting well be held from the 19th to the 21st of May 2017 at the Victorian Tent Embassy at 8 Majorca Rd. Maryborough 3465. Helen Dodds Aboriginal Tent Embassy Victoria.

We are calling on all Sovereign Nations and descendents of the settlers across this great land to come to this meeting in Victoria in the first instance.

There will be more meetings to follow over the next few months for the preparation of what is decided to be done when we arrive at Canberra.

For years many of us have had great ideas to regain our land and our freedom but this Government have always either blocked or they back track on their promises with the agreements made!

Signally we have not had any success on any main stream level. Thus I put to everyone and the reason for this meeting is to bring the people from all over together and share the ideas and with discussion together we all need to continue to Canberra and face this Government head on and do not back down until they have been removed or under control by culture council and we can action our plans to start over in a fairer way for all people to live and enjoy life as it should be.

With all of us standing together with the one common cause, the power goes to the people. Government law no longer takes preference, People are now the law.
Once this has taken place and no doubt this will be discussed in the meetings, it is now they have gone because the people have stated so then the old borders can be put back and all countries can start to look after themselves again but under a new parliament as such elected by the people and Governed by a Cultural Council.

The need for all countries to be represented to have their say and to hear what is said by others is of the highest importance and will be the most important event to ever happen for this Country.

It in our best interest.

So Please come to this meeting or if you cannot come comment your email address so we can send you a copy of video voice recording to you about what happen at the meeting.

Hey guys quick update. Just letting you know the car is fix and we are ready to go to get back into the walk again. But before we start the walk again towards port August way. The team and I have decided today that we should visit one more APY community call MiMili. Mimili community is about 100km west from Marla roadhouse it is where APY women council group is. I have decided that I should see the APY women council group and have a meeting with them before I head south.

I have had meeting none stop with a lot of man group in community on this walk and had meeting with some of the women group. But this is a time where I can set down and listing and understand the APY elderly women council group from the central desert on what they want for they people and understand what is need done in APY community in the central desert. It is also about asking the APY women council group from the central desert to get support for the walk. I be having a meeting Tomorrow with APY women council group and Elders in MIMIli community.

Day 123: 7.30pm

The one think I have notest out in community is the way how my people look after the wildlife and do what best to help save animals like horse, dingo and other animal you can name in Australia. We as a people of the land who been living here for 100,000 years love taking care of it and know what need to be done to help the land and wildlife it self.

PS this baby horse was all a long out in the Bush not far from the community. So the women group got together and when out to save this baby horse and do what best to help other wild life who need help out in the desert area.

Day 121: 12pm

[Admin Gee] Great article on Croaky by Melissa Sweet mentioning Clinton:

“Think of the courage shown by individuals like Clinton Pryor, a Wajuk, Balardung, Kija and Yulparitja man, who is making a long walk for justice from Perth to Canberra, protesting about the closure of remote Aboriginal communities in Western Australia, amongst other things.

As I read about his journey to date – at his website and ABC – I imagined, what if…

…what if other people, in other places and other countries, followed in his footsteps? What if Clinton’s long walk was just the beginning of many other such transformative journeys?

There is nothing like a long walk for bringing clarity to confused thoughts and agendas, and for connecting us with what matters most.”

Thanks Melissa!


Day 121: 4pm

Hey guys quick update just letting you know we just reach Marla roadhouse about 160km from the boarder of Northern Territory the first road house we got to in South Australia.

Day 122: 4pm

It been a very busy day today everyone was working hard on the car and the trailer to get think done and ready to head south. The new tyres are on, widow is fix and the rake on the trailer is fix. The only think left now is to fix the water pump in the engine. Once the water pump is fix than we can get back into the walking heading towards port August way. I feel good doing a good day of working hard. Now it time to relax and have something to eat and have a beer after hard day of working.


Day 122: 5.30pm

Half way there still got another 2, 530km* to go to reach the end of this journey I when on. This journey I went on with Garry and Noonie well always be with me when I finish it and for the days of my life until I get old. I know people have being waiting on me to start speaking the truth. But I waiting until the right time because I’m enjoying what I’m seeing out here on the land and out in the bush because I’m with my ancients and my people learning and understand what need to people done for my people and for the wildlife. Port August is where I well speak and how I’m going to move this country forward.

This walk I’m on is more than me it is about all of us and it about how we can make this right. I have walk and walk on this land within my ancient foot steps and seen thought they eyes how they live of the land and how they live free for over 100,0000 until Western came here and change our way of life. Now I understand why my ancient showing me thought the spirit fire to walk a cross the country. When I was on heirisson island in Perth fighting to stop community to be closure down and for the homeless to get home. My ancient wanted me to do this because to end the sufficient, pain and save my culture from dieing out and bring this country together.

This country is ready to make it right because the people out there on this land we share and my people wanted change but didn’t know how to bring us together and have being yelling for it. But thought this walk has made it happen, there all different culture people in this country and around the world watching this walk. This walk was never about me, it about bring us together and putting our difference to the side because we all wanted the same think and that is to live happen, free and make the world a better place.

John has been walking for the last 7 months raising money leukodystrophy. A disease that affects the brain and spinal cord etc. He’s on his way to Perth. He left from cape York QLD.

I take my hat off to him. Walking for 7 months already and says he will be in Perth after Christmas. So if by chance you do drive past him give him a wave, stop to say hello or even give him a bottle of water, food or some spare change to help him with raising money for this cause.

He walk across Australia 3 time and this is his last walk across Australia. He about 65 year old and we call him the Forrest gum of Australia. When I met him on the central desert road he told me that I was the first walker i meet on his journey and the youngest one as well. I ask him why are you raising money for leukodystrophy diseases.

He said that his wife had it and she pass away from having it. So he doing it for her and try help and save other who got it. So please if you see him help him please give him so think to help want he need to finish his walk to Perth and money to help him raise for leukodystrophy.
