The constitution is not broken it just that you people in politics don’t want to follow the rule book because you choose to be greedy an what power to control us.
The construction is for the people to give them the power to have a say when it come to laws, votes and who they want to lead this country.
I seen the old constitution the 1901 it has change from a government for the people to a government for the rich. We shall no longer be rule by the rich an that the power shall come back to the people.

Early this morning. I never had the earge to howl at it. But I have. The dingos do sound a lot better than me, after I had turned off my alarm early one morning in the west, the dingos howling started first one, then two then three, soft and a gentle howling, no sound of aggression, just an answer to a strange sound of music they have never heard befor. Bitter sweet, they had heard the sound of the violin. They must have like it. They have good tast in music. – Noonie

Clinton’s Walk For Justice calls for support rallies and events to be held all across the country on September 3, as Clinton’s big Canberra arrival event is held.
We’ll be calling on the Governor General to meet with Clinton and begin discussions about treaty – sovereign to sovereign.
We encourage all people – from the cities all the way out to the remote communities – to take part in a national day of action to push for treaty and address issues of injustice faced by both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people.
Some event ideas you could use:
A big bus-ride to Canberra!
Convoy to Canberra!
Organise rallies in your city or town!
Hold big gatherings,
Do a dance for justice,
Put up posters and banners in public,
Write letters to the Governor General and mail them all together on Sept 3
Or maybe do your own walk for justice through your town!
And make sure to create your local events on Facebook and let us know about them through the Clinton’s Walk For Justice Facebook Page, we’ll help you spread the word! You can even make us co-host if you like!
Non-Aboriginal people – it’s time to stand up in support of treaty and justice for Aboriginal people, come stand with us.
Help us finally move this country forward.
Democracy in Colour have organised a series of buses running from major cities to Canberra for this event. It is ticketed and we will be updating as we hear more. Check the Facebook Events page for more details.

Got a email from The Museum of Australian Democracy.
I work at the Museum of Australian Democracy, based at Old Parliament House, across the road from the Aboriginal Tent Embassy in Canberra.
Clinton we’ve been following your journey with great interest and we’re all excited about your arrival in Canberra, especially now you’ve named the day.
We’re a museum that collects items that, amongst other things, represent people’s efforts to bring about better conditions for people and raise awareness of different issues.
I’m contacting you to see if you would be interested in donating something to the museum from your walk. We would love to be able to display something that tells visitors to the museum about your journey and what you were aiming to do. We’re thinking about something like one of your many pairs of worn out runners, or a flag or banner, or maybe something that someone gave you during the journey.
If you’re is happy to do this we could do a handover on the day of your arrival, when I imagine media will be there, to add another dimension to your arrival, or we could do it in the days afterwards, depending on what demands there are on your time.
Day 332: 11am
BBC news from London has email me asking to do a live interview over in London on Skype about the walk for justice. They most of gotten the story from The New York Time. The BBC news in London has over 44million follower. If I do it I know the British government and royal family will be watching it. The three think I be letten BBC news is that.
Opinions.1 = It time for the crown to had back the country of the land down under to the sovereign ower of this land we live on. It is because this country was never your in the first place your systems is a illegal and there is no treaty in place.
Opinions. 2 = On the behalf of my people and the Australian people we call on the Crown to come down here to deal with this matter we have with the Australian government because the Australian government is no long a sovereign British parliament. It now a Australia corporation government sin 1972 and this government put this law in place without putting it into a referendum for the people to vote on it and they a not following original constitution law.
Opinion. 3 – On the behalf of my people the sovereign people of this land. We call on the crown to Finley come forward and to ask for represent on the behalf of the crown to come down to the land down under to talk about treaty between us and the crown.
We what to move this country forward and we as a musculature people what the crown to hand back this land to Sovereign people an leave as friends. But we what governor general practice to be place by a governor culture council who is run by Sovereign elder’s and there be chairs for none indigenous. So the power is given back to the people and that this government should be over seen by the people.
This what the people of the land down under what.

[Admin Post] In a heated NAIDOC line up of speeches in Darwin today, the focus was on the continued NT intervention. Clinton’s Walk for Justice feature two speakers and the DCC dance incentive creating awareness of incarceration: One Mob Different Country.
Auntie Josie Crawshaw of the ‘No Justice – Just Us’ campaign spoke about CDP – Community Development Program (which was CDEP – now minus the word “Employment”) work for the dole and Centrelink’s Mutual Obligation requirements. The reality of being breached is resulting in starvation, personal and family breakdown continuing as a serious oppressive situation of epidemic proportion in community right now – on our watch – before our very eyes in this day and age 2017.
Work for the dole with no Work Cover, union representation or superannuation is modern slavery, with the Basic Card and Income Management breaching human rights and basic human dignity. This together with suspension of payments in part decided on by privatised job network agencies is driving suicide rates, family breakdown and child removals, petty crime and arrests to unprecedented levels – the highest in the world.
Since the intervention, the paperless arrest judicary and punishment “lock em up” system is perpetuating the loss of cultural continuance, language, community and family kinship, totemic heritage and local ecological knowledge. This is continued genocide. Mutual Obligation and youth detention are forcing this generational gap as more people must move off country. The administration costs of income management and paternalistic punitive approaches from government policy could be going to more early awareness, education and community initiatives that encourage and facilitate incentive and reward in local enterprise and small business, land care, arts and cultural development.
Again and again we are calling on the government to listen and act together on the concerns of our Elders and community representatives.
John Lawrence spoke of the term JUSTICE. The opportunities the Royal Commission into Youth Detention have brought to highlight these injustices, the entrenched racism and perpetual genocide occurring in Australia, while this nation boasts of being one of the wealthiest contries in the developed world. Its position on the UN Human Rights Council is a joke Mr Lawrance said, the senior lawyer giving a personal case example of the consequences of locking up a 14 year old to whom every level of government including the Minister are continually complicit.
The stark reality is why the emphasis is going to building bigger prisons and detention centres when we could be building better schools with better education, better support and services in prevention, rehabilitation and training. He went on to acknowledge we are tired of words, policies and political tricks, calling Parliament House a junk yard, a circus and how important it is to keep standing together in the truth that Soverienty has never been ceded.

From Larrakia Nation website:
One Mob Different Country is a program that has been operating out of the Darwin Correctional Centre (DCC) for approximately 12 years. The program allows low-security Indigenous prisoners who have demonstrated good behaviour to take part in performing traditional aboriginal dances at events – including community, government and not for profit organisations. The dancers have been given permission from the Elders of the Beswick and Barunga communities to perform certain dances and songs from that region.
The name One Mob Different Country refers to the fact that the dancers themselves may come from different communities (different country) but they come together as a group to dance (as one mob). The dancers are not paid to perform. Instead the funds go to the Department of Correctional Services to support this enterprise program and others – for capacity building and creating a positive, sustainable future for those in the program.
Accompanied by live music of clap sticks and/or didgeridoo.
