When I reach the end of this journey into Canberra. I have walked over 5,550km doing the walk for justice in the foot step of my ancients an the first walk for justice in history in the southern hemisphere.

Truth and justice well lead the way for this country to heal and to move this country forward for better future for all. Our time has come and we waited for 229 year for this to happen and it is the right time for this to happen an that is a treaty to heal the nation.

we’ll speak out about the issue my people an none indigenous people from community, homeland, station, town and city about the injustice that taking place throughout this country. The truth is the truth and it is the only way to move forward.

It is time for political from both side and the governor general to set down and it time to listen. No more we shall not live a lie. It is time for the truth to be heard.
