Day 351: 10.30am

[Admin Toby] In a movement to educate wider Australians of ongoing Indigenous wage discrimination, during the lead up to the 50th anniversary of the Wave Hill walk-off in August 2016, a flash mob style “art installation” was staged as a form of protest which took social media by storm.

The First Nations Workers’ Alliance followed as a new organisation formed alongside the Australian Unions. With CDP workers and the community they serve to give a voice to workers being exploited, while campaigning to end the CDP and replace it with a program that works for Indigenous people rather than oppressing them.

We were really pleased to see Zachary Joseph Wone caught up with Clinton in La Perouse!

Here is more info about FNWA from Australian Unions:

The Turnbull Government’s Community Development Program (CDP) is depriving tens of thousands of people of that opportunity. It’s punitive, heavy-handed and racially discriminatory and the Union movement is determined to see it removed.

CDP workers are not actually classified as workers. They get well below the minimum wage (the dole pays $11.60/hour or $290/week) for working for 25 hours a week for non-profit and now for-profit businesses.

They are not covered by the Fair Work Act, they don’t have Federal OHS protections or workers compensation and they can’t take annual leave, sick leave or carer’s leave.

Those under the CDP are forced to work up to three times longer than city-based jobseekers to receive welfare payments.

CDP workers have 70 times the financial penalties imposed upon them than non-remote dole workers.

Fines for missing activities under CDP – which coverers a tiny fraction of the population – account for more than half the total penalties across the entire welfare system.

I have organised a big meeting in Canberra with everyone when they arrive to talk about issues and what need to be done to start moving thing forward. The topic well be talk about treaty and what tip of treaty need to be done to make sure to save our culture, lore, land and most of all to getting think done so we can help our people an the future generations. There be other talk about issues but like how I said I not going to do anything without elder and everyone else agree on thing.

I have walk a long way from where I have started to now people should respect that. I be speaking out for justice for those who never got justice for love once, community that a living in 3rd world condition, community that been close down like my family community was close down and half of my family die living on the street and other issues we collected ever sin been on the journey. This walk was never easy it is a hard road to walk on but at less we know now I getting closer coming to the end of this amazing journey.

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

I being advice from my admin team has told me that state minister of indigenous affair from South Australia, NSW, Victoria and ACT want to get in connect with me and march with me on the street when I reach they area and what to talk with me about something.

I have also been advice from the admin team that labor and the green is now wanted to talk with me about some think. As I stand here on my own thinking about how this gone to play out when we reach Port Augusta, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra. Change is starting to happen as we speak. It has started to happen the day I left Perth. It was only the matter of time people is starting to realise what really going on in this country and what is happening.

So there for the only why I going to get my voice head and listing to is to speak the truth and none thing but the truth about how think can be done right for everyone and how think can be done right for our country future. It is time we stand up together for what we believe in and stand together for our children future. People need to realise not to allow our self getting distracted from the big picture. I’m no longer the learner and now have become the teach with much more to learn.

Day 144: 4.30pm

We need to realise as the oldest living culture on earth need to know that our dream time guardeds from the beginning when our culture began are still here living with us and are waiting on the right time. They have been here and have been watching over us making shore we follow the lore that they have pass down on to us from the beginning of time.

This is a screen shot from Benjamin Kenny from Docker River. He has tag me in this from last year and I forgotten to share. So today I’m sharing this and what to thank Mr Benjamin Kenny for tagging me in this.

This what Mr Benjamin Kenny said about this picture: This is a hill ranger north of Docker River about 150km in the Katiti Petermann IPA. I saw on Google earth and it look like a big snake but before I saw this and showed the TOs of this they told me there is a rainbow serpant living in a water hole in that range. The snake is facing west toward Kintore.


Day 144: 6.30pm

I hope this map is not true with how many language we got left in our culture that is still spoking. If it is we must do what needed to be done to keep our last of the language in our culture a live. We are in dark time right now and i making shore i going to push for my people language, truth history and my culture to be teach at school. So that every one know our language’s, know the truth history of our country pass and know my people culture but not our lore. Some think need to be done and I’m going to speak about this over in Canberra.

Update: I being told this only 50% of this has being done so far. There still a lot more language and a lot of reach search is going on right now trying to bring back and revive some language are still spoking by elders who are a live and language that a keep in archive in library. We must not loss our ancient language.

[Admin Gee] This has caused a great conversation over on Clinton’s Twitter page!
