[Admin Toby] Transcription of David Suzuki at the National Day of Action, Campbeltown NSW. 30 October 2016.

“You see, the issue is not one of racism, its about a colonial mindset and the battles you are having here are the same battles we are having in North America and in South America and in Africa. A colonial mentality that is not interested in Mother Earth.

I am astounded at the fact that you – Indigenous people still exist on this Land after all thats been done to you and I thank you. I thank you because we depend on you now, we need your leadership and the way of seeing the world that you have.

You see we have been blanketed by a mindset that does not see Mother Earth but sees resources and opportunities and its become a very powerful force – I am not Indigenous but I am here to say I am with you – to battle, because I am against the same mindset.

Someone said earlier that you want justice; you can not expect justice from a system that is built on denying the biggest crime of them all, which was that people came here and took your land! How can you have justice from a system that was built on that great crime to begin with?

So what I say is ‘we are now in a battle around the world’. A battle against the mentality that no longer sees the Earth as sacred. That no longer sees the Earth as our Mother. The very source of our lives and our well being.

And this is not any longer something that only Indigenous people have, it is people like me, people around the world who are beggining to realise that to talk about sustainability means that the only people on the Planet that know about sustainability are the people who have lived in place for thousands of years. And through the mistakes and failures and successes of their Elders, understand deeply what it means to live on the Land – with the Land.

So I just want to say thankyou. Thankyou for hanging on despite the horrors of what you’ve lived through. Your hanging on to something and we non-Indigenous want to work and help you work – with you, because we’ve got to overthrow the mentality that is ultimitely destroying this Planet.”

Proving that team work and Unity will get us on the right road to justice for people in this country, while giving hope and encouragement to our youth – Tanya


Day 256: 10am

I would like to have my say on this I would like to know who representing the Noongar nation the 22 country group and 40,000 of us. Those who got chosen to represent us must think about everything about the history and struggle of our pass in the south west against this government and before that. If is our council group the SWLSA council I going to let everyone know they don’t represent our people there where the once who try to give away our native title for 1.3billion but our people managed to stop it in the federal country so we keep our native title.

The think is as sovereign people we don’t what recognise from this corporate government because they not sovereign government no more and we don’t what to treaty with them. A treaty must come and only come from two sovereign nation group. If we treaty with this government we only have to look at the history of other country like our brother and sister in American and our New Zealand brother and sister what they going thought.

We must think a better way my people a cross this great land and there is a better way to save our culture, language, secret site our old people left for us to look after it and keep it alive. So hope our people in Uluru and other country group say no to recognise and say no to a treaty.


Day 256: 11.30am

Getting stronger and stronger every day on this walk. Making me think about all the community we been thought and everyone Else back at home in Perth and how family, our people, friends and other stood Strong and proud to fight for justice for our self and for every one else. We fought for our right as people and stood for our future to rebuilt after some much was lose. There well be a time when we rebuild what we lose not just for my people but for everyone else to who live here. That everyone shall live together in harmony and peace. But the future is for us to make something of if.
