Day 158: 7am
I would like to meet a lovely lady name Valerie Cox, who lives at Kingoonya S.A. Valerie made a damper for Allison, the birthday girl and ice the cake. While the cake was cooking, we had time to record Valerie were she was born. I had talk to people along this juoney who were born in the bush, but this was the first time I had the chance to record a person at the place where the birth tock place. Valerie was happy to show us and be recorded. She was very happy to be on her Country and where she was born. The mother of Valerie was to catch the train and then give birth, the tree is near an old camping ground, Valerie come first befor the train came.
Once again the stolen children were talked about again, Valerie family was not apart of the stolen generation, they told the same story’s of running and hiding when they could hear cars coming, they were never vaxinated, they came with the needles and ask were are the children, they off playing and running off somewhere, crow Valerie brother said we were hiding in the bushes looking at them till they were gone. This was the life of the children who escaped from the government people, coming to take the children from their family’s. They came back home.
Valerie Cox also makes a very good damper birthday cake. Thankyou. – Noonie

Day 155: 9.30am
[Admin Luke] Hi everyone, some exciting news:
We’ve finally launched our big crowd-fund to keep Clinton & the Walk For Justice Team going all the way to Canberra!!
As those who are following closely would know, the Justice Mobile is in need of some major repairs and we really need to make sure Garry’s rent back home gets paid for the rest of the walk.
Plus there is still a very long way left to go!
Clinton and the team left Matargarup last September and have walked all the way from Perth to Uluru, on to Coober Pedy and beyond. It’s been a long and hot walk but Clinton and the team keep pressing on. Along the way the team are spending time in Aboriginal communities; meeting with elders, hearing their stories, talking with school kids and community groups. Clinton will bring the words of these community members all the way to Canberra.
Please help keep the team going – donate & share today!! Our movement for justice continues to grow. Thank you for your support!
