Day 268: 1pm
Perth man walks 4000 kilometres for Justice – arrives Melbourne JUNE 6
Clinton’s Walk For Justice in Naarm (Melbourne)
What: 100’s of supporters and Warriors for Aboriginal Resistance march with Clinton into Melbourne
Time: Tuesday, June 6, 5pm – Press conference (Parliament Gardens), March at 5.30pm
Location: Begin at Parliament Gardens, march to Flinders St Station
On the evening of June 6, Clinton Pryor and his support team from Clintons Walk for Justice will walk into Melbourne to be joined by hundreds of supporters after travelling 4000 kilometres on foot since leaving Perth in September last year.
Clinton has been walking to draw attention to the issues facing his people – such as the high rates of Aboriginal people jailed, and suicides of young people, the closure of remote communities, and the strongly growing movement for treaty.
“Our sovereignty was never ceded and our rights as the first nation peoples of this land should be recognised and respected. We want a treaty and a real say in decision making.
Clintons Walk For Justice will join the Warriors of the Aboriginal Resistance in a march through Naarm (Melbourne), beginning at Parliament.
Clinton Pryor, a Wajuk, Balardung, Kija and Yulparitja 27 year old man from Western Australia has been on his walk since September, and he will have been on the road for a full year by the time he reaches Canberra (Via Sydney), where he and his team will deliver strong messages on behalf of the people and communities they have met with right across the country.
So far Clinton and the team have travelled through the dryness of the Gibson desert, all the way to Uluru and on through the blistering heat of summer to Coober Pedy, Port Augusta and Adelaide city.
Clinton’s Walk For Justice began out of a need within Clinton to do something about the forced closure of Aboriginal communities, and that strong theme continues.“The government has been slowly cutting off services in these communities – denying basic human rights like water – they are clearing people off land, so they can no longer care for country – and its all for mining companies to make a profit,” said Clinton.
“We know the land very well, we have been living off it for thousands for years. We know very well how this land and the environment works. It’s time for you fellas to listen to us… it doesn’t just effect our people… every other person suffers as well as the wildlife. Our elders should be given back control over our communities,” he concluded.
[Guest Post] Clinton got an awesome reception and feed from staunch aboriginal community here. Hearing about the concerns with treatyprocess. Clinton talking about communities he has met who have to travel 40km for fresh water. Ancestors Lands being destroyed. – Nicola
