[Admin Luke] Hi supporters, Clinton and the team are still very much in need of your financial support to keep the walk going.

It’s been a really tough couple of months for the team ever since leaving Uluru with car problems, heatwave after heatwave, floods and all sorts.

That’s made it a really tough slog and has been taking a toll, especially with continual financial stress, needing to fundraise all the time and all while worrying about the car.

But the team are almost through the hardest part now. Can you help lift a load off their shoulders by sharing and donating?

Every dollar will help reduce the stress AND keep the team going.

When I look at my self I cannot believe how much of a strong and proud Aboriginal man that is walking across this country right now for justice. I well stand up for my people, my culture and my country. I well fight for any one who live here on my ancients land. I want to see change for our future as a multicultural country. I’m not a shame for who i’m, but I get worry about the future for my people and my people culture an lore.

The time for change need to happen but right now with a corporate government who run this country. They well keep on stopping us for what we want. If we ever going to save our culture, we must unity with other culture people who not original inhabitants. The more number we got they well fear that and they cannot stop us. When we come together as one, we can get want we what. Unity has come forward and time for change is here and now. Let make this happen together we can do this.
