Day 351: 10.30am

[Admin Toby] In a movement to educate wider Australians of ongoing Indigenous wage discrimination, during the lead up to the 50th anniversary of the Wave Hill walk-off in August 2016, a flash mob style “art installation” was staged as a form of protest which took social media by storm.

The First Nations Workers’ Alliance followed as a new organisation formed alongside the Australian Unions. With CDP workers and the community they serve to give a voice to workers being exploited, while campaigning to end the CDP and replace it with a program that works for Indigenous people rather than oppressing them.

We were really pleased to see Zachary Joseph Wone caught up with Clinton in La Perouse!

Here is more info about FNWA from Australian Unions:

The Turnbull Government’s Community Development Program (CDP) is depriving tens of thousands of people of that opportunity. It’s punitive, heavy-handed and racially discriminatory and the Union movement is determined to see it removed.

CDP workers are not actually classified as workers. They get well below the minimum wage (the dole pays $11.60/hour or $290/week) for working for 25 hours a week for non-profit and now for-profit businesses.

They are not covered by the Fair Work Act, they don’t have Federal OHS protections or workers compensation and they can’t take annual leave, sick leave or carer’s leave.

Those under the CDP are forced to work up to three times longer than city-based jobseekers to receive welfare payments.

CDP workers have 70 times the financial penalties imposed upon them than non-remote dole workers.

Fines for missing activities under CDP – which coverers a tiny fraction of the population – account for more than half the total penalties across the entire welfare system.

Also be asking traditional own around Canberra about it to. I what use the piece of the rock that was giving to me from Reggie Uluru to bury it with the tree so it can become a part of the tree. The tree I what to plant well be a symbol of unity between all the 2,000 first nation clan group and a symbol of wisdom knowledge, healing, respect, strength and courage. But most of all united as one for our people, for our culture, for our ancestor, for our law, for our child and for this country itself.

So our people can be proud of who they are and proud of been a part of the longest living culture on earth.

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 Luke] Last year this young Gunditjmarra warrior and supporter of Clinton’s Walk, Isiah, spent all his saved up moneybox money – $140 of his own pocket money – to put on a feed for homeless mob in Fitzroy.

This year, Isiah saved his money and used it to buy a new pair of boots for Clinton to wear the walk to Canberra. What a little legend!

After learning this story, we thought it only right to help the young fella continue his tradition of helping the homeless.

And so this afternoon, we will be co-hosting a public event with Democracy in Colour in honour of Isiah. The event will be held at Victoria Trades Hall and will provide free food for those in need.

This is also an opportunity for homeless folk and supporters to come along and get a chance to meet with Clinton.

Catering is being generously provided by Lentil As Anything.

Come along and support a great kid, have a great feed and meet with Clinton and the Walk For Justice team before they leave Naarm.
