Day 277: 11am

On our way out of Melbourne walking towards the coast line heading to Sydney. We back into the walk again today. I be going live tonight to give ever one a update and to talk about think about native title issue. This government has no respect for my culture and for my people changing native title law back home in western Australia so that they can cheat to take our land way from underneath our feet. We ain’t going give up our ancients land without a fought.

Day 277: 8pm

I’m proud to be part of a culture that’s been here since the creation of the Dreaming. Our people survived through the hard times back in the 1700s and 1800s and early 1900s and we’re still here. Our culture is getting stronger now. I’m really proud to be a sovereign man on this land that we all stand on.

Being forced off our ancestors’ lands into missions, to live life the European way when we lived our way for 60,000 years, traditional way with the land, looking after the land … being forced away, it hurt a lot of our people so badly. We still have to battle against a system that is doing its best to take away our sovereignty rights, where we’ve become British subjects, but we are not British subjects, we are people of this land that lived here for thousands and thousands of years, and we don’t want to become a part of a system that has only been here for 229 years. We want to mingle in with the modern world, but we just don’t want to give away our rights as sovereign people.

Our people should have access to what we had always for 60,000 years – to land, to hunt, to gather food, to teach our kids our language, our culture, and also to teach about this country’s past, and educate our young generation that our people had to go through so much to survive. We want to keep our sovereignty and we want to push for treaty talks.

We allow everyone else to have their religions and beliefs, temples and churches and mosques, but what about us? Why aren’t our beliefs being well respected? Sacred sites, that’s our church. We don’t go and blow up a church or blow up a mosque or blow up a temple, why demolish our sacred sites? We just want things to be done properly and not be treated like we’re garbage. i want to see the power given back to the people.

[Admin] On the evening of June 6, Clinton’s Walk For Justice will join the Warriors of the Aboriginal Resistance – WAR in a march through Naarm (Melbourne), beginning at Parliament Gardens.

Clinton Pryor, a Wajuk, Balardung, Kija and Yulparitja man from Western Australia has been on his Walk For Justice since leaving Perth in September last year.

Clinton and the Walk For Justice Team are headed for Canberra, where they will deliver strong messages on behalf of the people and communities the team has met with right across the country.

Clinton says two messages are coming through very clearly from Aboriginal communities right now:

“First – our sovereignty was never ceded and our rights as the first nation peoples of this land should be recognised and respected as sovereign. And also our elders should be given back control over our communities.”

Warriors of the Aboriginal Resistance is a of collective of young Aboriginal people committed to the cause of decolonization and the philosophy of Aboriginal nationalism – resistance and revival.

We invite all of the community to support Clinton walk through Naarm. Families are encourage to bring their young ones along to meet deadly brother Clinton.

What to bring: Banners, flags, gum leaves and paint-up.
Must bring rain weather gear to protect yourself from the elements, it is expected to be a cold welcome into Naarm.

Day 228: 9.30pm

[Guest Post] There are no words to describe how incredible and profound tonight was!

Our family had the great privilege of hosting, the phenonmenal Clinton Pryor and his team for dinner tonight. Thank you everyone that came for your warmth, kindness, understanding, open conversation and for the feeling of kinship that was felt by everyone tonight. My mind has been opened to the many discrepancies that exist in our society but more importantly how little effort it takes to overcome our percieved otherness to each other.

Feeling overwhelmed by the love and respect felt tonight and here’s hoping to many more times together!

Clinton is walking for justice from his home in Perth to Canberra and raising awareness for the injustices that exist in Australia including visiting Aboriginal communities and discussing Aboriginal issues, addressing homelessness and the irresponsibility of Government in addressing these issues. His walk is to bring all people in Australia to stand for justice.

We wish you all the very best for the rest of your journey Clinton – you are truly an inspiration!

Please share and follow Clinton’s Walk for Justice! – Appurva

Day 226: ANZAC Day

Day 226: 9.30am

Here today to payed my respect to those who die in the war thought out this world and the frontier war in this country it self. Anzac Day is a time when we honour all the men and women who have served Australia, many of whom made the ultimate sacrifice. But also Anzac should be a time on this day to remember those who die defending they land from the British invasion.

Anzac can be a day of remembering those who served defending this country thought out the war’s in the world and use as a day to remember those who die defending they country from invasion on this land we live on today.

Anzac can bring unity forward for both side. But our government and modern Australia tell us to get over it on this day and tell us to move forward from the past. But you wouldn’t like it if we told you to move forward from Anzac. When we should know in our heart we want unity and Anzac can be a day to remember people served defending this country from invasion an for those who served in the war thought out the world.

But if we keep on only remembering those on Anzac day who served Australia and not remember those from the frontier war. There be always division and no unity on Anzac day. It time we remember ever thing that happen in this country in the past from the frontier wars and remember those who served Australia it self to. It time for unity Australia so let make this happen.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have served in all of Australia’s major conflicts since the Boer War but have not always received the deserved recognition. Many returned not even to be counted as citizens… let alone be eligible for Government assistance and programs.

Today let’s take an extra moment to remember the sacrifice made by our First Peoples, the oldest living culture of the planet, and their contribution to defending our nation. Also remember those who served Australia in the war thought out the world it self together for unity.

So Lest we forget.

Hey all good morning well I be getting back into the walk today. We still have to do other 50km walk to make our way in Coober Pedy before heading to Port Augusta. I decided three days ago before coming into Coober Pedy was to rest up and the team to rest up so we drive in. But we needed to do other 50km to walk into Coober Pedy before we can start making our way towards Port Augusta.

So today we going back our to the spot where we stop and get back into it. It seem to me that the weather today is going to be 46 degree in our area and that good I like a bit of a challenge. Beside before leaving Coober Pedy without know the real heat of this area well be unfair to know it. So today I have decided to challenge this heat and walk in it finish the last leg walk into Coober Pedy. Before resting tomorrow and Wednesday starting the walking again to make our way towards Port Augusta. So let do this and challenge this heat out.
