I march and march my way down south towards Port Augusta. I’m going to shake think right up when I march my way thought Port Augusta, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra. This corporate government better be ready when I head Port Augusta because I’m coming with the truth and going to shake this country right up to bring unity for the people of down under. It time we make a stand for what right and stand for the future of our land down under. We are now in Cadney Park. We leave tomorrow to make our way towards Coober Pedy. It well take us about three day walk to get to Coober.
“Think of the courage shown by individuals like Clinton Pryor, a Wajuk, Balardung, Kija and Yulparitja man, who is making a long walk for justice from Perth to Canberra, protesting about the closure of remote Aboriginal communities in Western Australia, amongst other things.
As I read about his journey to date – at his website and ABC – I imagined, what if…
…what if other people, in other places and other countries, followed in his footsteps? What if Clinton’s long walk was just the beginning of many other such transformative journeys?
There is nothing like a long walk for bringing clarity to confused thoughts and agendas, and for connecting us with what matters most.”

This journey I went on with Garry and Noonie well always be with me when I finish it and for the days of my life until I get old. I know people have being waiting on me to start speaking the truth. But I waiting until the right time because I’m enjoying what I’m seeing out here on the land and out in the bush because I’m with my ancients and my people learning and understand what need to people done for my people and for the wildlife. Port August is where I well speak and how I’m going to move this country forward.
This walk I’m on is more than me it is about all of us and it about how we can make this right. I have walk and walk on this land within my ancient foot steps and seen thought they eyes how they live of the land and how they live free for over 100,0000 until Western came here and change our way of life. Now I understand why my ancient showing me thought the spirit fire to walk a cross the country. When I was on heirisson island in Perth fighting to stop community to be closure down and for the homeless to get home. My ancient wanted me to do this because to end the sufficient, pain and save my culture from dieing out and bring this country together.
This country is ready to make it right because the people out there on this land we share and my people wanted change but didn’t know how to bring us together and have being yelling for it. But thought this walk has made it happen, there all different culture people in this country and around the world watching this walk. This walk was never about me, it about bring us together and putting our difference to the side because we all wanted the same think and that is to live happen, free and make the world a better place.

Day 57: 6pm
When we was at Wiluna. This two statue is to honor the last of the nomad’s. The two old people who was find out in the Gibson Desert name where Warri and Yatungka. Warri and Yatungka were believed to be the last of the Mandildjara tribe of the desert nomads to live permanently in the traditional way. Their deaths in the late 1970s marked the end of a tribal lifestyle that stretched back more than 30,000 years.
I think about this two amazing people that they name well live on through out the century to come and that our people well know that this two were the last two people in our culture way. Who live the old way before our people change in to this modern world we live now. I still reading the book and I up to page 52 now and it starting to make me understand more about this two and how they live they life before passing on.
Day 57: 6.30pm

A Nyungah man is walking cross Australia
A Nyungah, Clinton Pryor is his name
This south-west man is walking now for justice
He’s travelling and calling for a change
He’s walking from Perth across to Canberra
He’s walking, to get a message through
You might not know it ….
You might not know him…
But he’s walking Australia for you too
You might think a Nyungah walking in the out- back
Would hardly make a scratch upon a wall
But first week he got a call to say sorry
That the “Sorry” said had made no change at all
And as leader spoke to leader on the cell phones
The sun rose higher in the sky
A Nyungah man is walking his country
Walking proud… .and asking why
A Nyungah man is walking Australia
He’s one of the willing and the few
They’re walking all the way to Canberra
Where politicians do…. what they do
He’s gathering the stories of his people
And listening to the stories of the land
Sending out a daily record on his face book
So people in the city understand
Exposing the failures in the system
Learning of the sorrow and the pain
The growing list of promises broken
The struggle, always struggle with no gain
A Nyungah man is crossing Australia
And calling for a right to the wrongs
For an end to injustice and the failure
To find a way that we can all belong
A Nyungah Man is walking this country
He’s walking to get a message through
You might not know it ….
You might not know him…
But he’s walking Australia for you too.
Sometimes days without a signal
Solid road becomes dirt track
But TV News and film crews
Are now crossing the out-back
To Leanora, Laverton,
And Warburton as well
And Clinton’’s walk for Justice
Is the story that they tell
He’s walking in the heat of the desert
Through the centre and on past Uluru
You might not know it ….
You might not know him…
But he’s walking Australia for you too
Day 58: 12.30pm
[Admin Jake] One of Clinton’s friends and supporters had been discussing a pair of painted up steel capped boots for Clinton.
About two to three weeks ago, Marcia sent her finished artwork off from Queensland to her partner Wazza in Perth. Wazza and his Dad then drove the boots out to Clinton over the space of a couple of days, past Kalgoorlie and handed them over to Clinton. Below are a few beautiful pics that only just touch on the story.
The boots also accompanied a letter from Ngallagunda remote community which Clinton is reading in one if the photos, which they wish for Clinton to present to Mr Turnbull in Canberra.
Thank you to Marcia, Wazza and Wazza’s Dad and the Ngallagunda remote conmunity and everyone else that contributes to Clinton’s journey.
Much love! You are all fantastic!
“These shoes were donated to bring the situation at ‘Ngallagunda Remote Aboriginal Community’ to the public. They have tried to silence us through threats and intimidation but the world needs to know what is happening on these cattle stations and how morally bankrupt people are actively and persistently working to take over our aboriginal run stations. If there is someone reading this who has any kind of legal or social background that can lend advise or time the mob at Ngallagunda will welcome conversation with you. Pm me and I can put you in touch with them. Thank you for all the kind words also. And Clinton, you’re a legend – you will go down in history.” – Marcia
