Day 320: 1.30pm

Australia needed a treaty with its Aboriginal population giving elders more control over their people, which would help address inequality and issues that the Indigenous people faced every day.

Many in the Aboriginal community had lost faith in the “Recognise” movement and just wanted a formal treaty in place, giving them the rights they needed to improve their lives and future of the race.

“It should have been done in 1788, 229 years ago and we are still waiting for it to happen,” he said. “The most thing I worry is see a lot of my people living homeless, watching the land being destroyed and my culture dying out.”

The tree I what to plant well be a symbol of unity between all the 2,000 first nation clan group and a symbol of wisdom knowledge, healing, respect, strength and courage. But most of all united as one for our people, for our culture, for our ancestor, for our law, for our child and for this country itself.

[Admin Luke] Last year this young Gunditjmarra warrior and supporter of Clinton’s Walk, Isiah, spent all his saved up moneybox money – $140 of his own pocket money – to put on a feed for homeless mob in Fitzroy.

This year, Isiah saved his money and used it to buy a new pair of boots for Clinton to wear the walk to Canberra. What a little legend!

After learning this story, we thought it only right to help the young fella continue his tradition of helping the homeless.

And so this afternoon, we will be co-hosting a public event with Democracy in Colour in honour of Isiah. The event will be held at Victoria Trades Hall and will provide free food for those in need.

This is also an opportunity for homeless folk and supporters to come along and get a chance to meet with Clinton.

Catering is being generously provided by Lentil As Anything.

Come along and support a great kid, have a great feed and meet with Clinton and the Walk For Justice team before they leave Naarm.

Isiah is a young Gunditjmarra warrior and supporter of my Walk, Isiah, spent all his saved up moneybox money – $140 of his own pocket money – to put on a feed for homeless mob in Fitzroy.

This amazed me that this little warrior Isiah saved his money and used it to buy a new pair of boots for me to wear the walk to Canberra. What a little legend!

I what to thank little Isiah from the bottom of my heart how amazing and great you are and yet your so young and your doing amazing staff for your people in your country area.

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.
