Day 299: 8.30pm

[Admin Post] In a heated NAIDOC line up of speeches in Darwin today, the focus was on the continued NT intervention. Clinton’s Walk for Justice feature two speakers and the DCC dance incentive creating awareness of incarceration: One Mob Different Country.

Auntie Josie Crawshaw of the ‘No Justice – Just Us’ campaign spoke about CDP – Community Development Program (which was CDEP – now minus the word “Employment”) work for the dole and Centrelink’s Mutual Obligation requirements. The reality of being breached is resulting in starvation, personal and family breakdown continuing as a serious oppressive situation of epidemic proportion in community right now – on our watch – before our very eyes in this day and age 2017.

Work for the dole with no Work Cover, union representation or superannuation is modern slavery, with the Basic Card and Income Management breaching human rights and basic human dignity. This together with suspension of payments in part decided on by privatised job network agencies is driving suicide rates, family breakdown and child removals, petty crime and arrests to unprecedented levels – the highest in the world.

Since the intervention, the paperless arrest judicary and punishment “lock em up” system is perpetuating the loss of cultural continuance, language, community and family kinship, totemic heritage and local ecological knowledge. This is continued genocide. Mutual Obligation and youth detention are forcing this generational gap as more people must move off country. The administration costs of income management and paternalistic punitive approaches from government policy could be going to more early awareness, education and community initiatives that encourage and facilitate incentive and reward in local enterprise and small business, land care, arts and cultural development.

Again and again we are calling on the government to listen and act together on the concerns of our Elders and community representatives.

John Lawrence spoke of the term JUSTICE. The opportunities the Royal Commission into Youth Detention have brought to highlight these injustices, the entrenched racism and perpetual genocide occurring in Australia, while this nation boasts of being one of the wealthiest contries in the developed world. Its position on the UN Human Rights Council is a joke Mr Lawrance said, the senior lawyer giving a personal case example of the consequences of locking up a 14 year old to whom every level of government including the Minister are continually complicit.

The stark reality is why the emphasis is going to building bigger prisons and detention centres when we could be building better schools with better education, better support and services in prevention, rehabilitation and training. He went on to acknowledge we are tired of words, policies and political tricks, calling Parliament House a junk yard, a circus and how important it is to keep standing together in the truth that Soverienty has never been ceded.

From Larrakia Nation website:

One Mob Different Country is a program that has been operating out of the Darwin Correctional Centre (DCC) for approximately 12 years. The program allows low-security Indigenous prisoners who have demonstrated good behaviour to take part in performing traditional aboriginal dances at events – including community, government and not for profit organisations. The dancers have been given permission from the Elders of the Beswick and Barunga communities to perform certain dances and songs from that region.

The name One Mob Different Country refers to the fact that the dancers themselves may come from different communities (different country) but they come together as a group to dance (as one mob). The dancers are not paid to perform. Instead the funds go to the Department of Correctional Services to support this enterprise program and others – for capacity building and creating a positive, sustainable future for those in the program.

Accompanied by live music of clap sticks and/or didgeridoo.

$1,950 (+gst) for approximately 15-20 minutes duration

Day 121: 12pm

[Admin Gee] Great article on Croaky by Melissa Sweet mentioning Clinton:

“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.”

Thanks Melissa!


Day 121: 4pm

Hey guys quick update just letting you know we just reach Marla roadhouse about 160km from the boarder of Northern Territory the first road house we got to in South Australia.

Wake up this morning watching the news how the weather like for today. The weather in Queensland is 38 dragees all ready at 7:00am.I like well I been walking no stop thought this summer heat and the weather it self is just warming up. It been not stop heat every sin we walk into south Australia. So there for the team and i going to be walking at night and chill all day so we don’t get sun burn in the day time.

We going to stay a other night in Marla roadhouse because the car is not fix. We a going back out to the community to continued working on the car until it finish. Than start getting back into the walk again and make our way south towards port August.


Day 122: 4pm

It been a very busy day today everyone was working hard on the car and the trailer to get think done and ready to head south. The new tyres are on, widow is fix and the rake on the trailer is fix. The only think left now is to fix the water pump in the engine. Once the water pump is fix than we can get back into the walking heading towards port August way. I feel good doing a good day of working hard. Now it time to relax and have something to eat and have a beer after hard day of working.


Day 122: 5.30pm

Half way there still got another 2, 530km* to go to reach the end of this journey I when on. 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.

Clinton’s Walk for Justice
By Lynda Nutter October 2016

Clinton’s Crossing
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
Could hardly make a scratch upon a wall
But first week he got a phone 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

To be continued….

Days 116-119: South Australia!

Day 115: 8.30am

Hey guys quick update. We just reach the last roadhouse In northern territory. We going to rest up over night at the last roadhouse in the northern territory before we cross over the boarder to South Australia. South Australia boarder from where we are is about 20km down the road. The next place from this roadhouse is about 260km a way with signal. So that mean the team and I well be out of signal for about 6 days before we get hit the first town in south Australia. But in the time we are on the top end of south Australia when we pass over. We be visiting community, who not far from the main road to see the elderly, aboriginal leaders and the kids at they school.

Also see how think being going for the South Australia mob in the top end area. At the road house we are staying we have no signal, but we do have Wi-Fi so I can message people. It look like we will be hitting port August within the end of the months. So when we reach the next town I we’ll be giving the port August mob a call to start getting ready to march with me on the street and march with me for justice. I think port August is going to be where think are going to kick think up for the walk for justice. Also we need to start doing some action on this walk so the corporate government know that we the people of this country had a none and we a standing up for what right.


Day 115: 11am

15823536_1915621005327753_8572815381310542558_nI think I need to be more careful with the piece of the Uluru rock that traditional elder and custodian Reggie Uluru giving me. when I was talking with the spirit of the land asking for help and what need to be done for the walk for justice on Christmas day. That night in Uluru it rain heavy and it never rain heavy in Uluru for over 50 years. It mean the heart land is coming back to life and the spirit of the land must heard my voice and they know justice need to be served.

So next time when I pull out the piece of Uluru to ask the spirit for some help it mute rain heavy some where else where i’m. But i well be asking the spirit of the land to watch over me when I walk thought Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney. When I get to Canberra I well pull out the piece of the rock of Uluru and ask the spirit to make it rain heavy in Canberra with a Storm over it. So Parliament house can get flooded out and the corporate government have no choose but to shut down Parliament house and came out to side see us.

But like how i said I need to be more careful with the piece of Uluru because it very powerful and it where all the songline connect and the spirit of the land a traveling with me and are watching over me with this piece of Uluru rock I got.

15894911_1915798018643385_1796307193541157185_nYou know what I feeling that proud of my self thinking about how far I walk from Perth all the way right in the middle of Australia thought summer, a heart wave and rain Storm. No one on this earth well never forget the name Clinton Pryor in the century to come. A first nation man who walk a cross a hole country for justice and walk be on Ghandi and Dr King walk for justice.

Walking in the foot step of my old people seen traditional time and may be the last traditional man to walk a cross on my ancient land but I hope I not the last to walk a cross.

The elders have told me I well make the history book and my name well live on when I pass away. The world well know that I well be the first person in humans history to walk across a hole country for justice when I finish the walk in Canberra. Glory, honor, respect and most of all my name well live thought the century to come when i’m gone from this earth because what I did in this century of time of age for my people, for my culture, for my ancient land, for the wild life and most for all bring this country together in harmony.

Day 113: 5am

I will not give up or let them win. I going to keep going until my people have happiness and our culture survived. This government has done nothing, but destroy the way how my people have live for 100,000 year sing our dream time began and taking everything away from us and made us live in pain and hurt. My culture and my ancient land is slowly dieing out and I need to do something to save it. A None is a none and it time for justice to be served. The weapon of the truth well lead me on this path to served justice, to the road of freedom for my people, my culture, my ancient land to survived so it can live on and also bring this country together as one to live together in harmony.

15826886_1914780775411776_9193044095285843309_nI remember day I was born in this world until now. This a photo of me when I stood on Matargarup Heirission Island in Perth for the homeless and the forced closure of community in Western Australia. It stood on a island for 16 month to make a stand and for change hoping there more to life that what it is now and how the way my people in this country are being treated by this corporate government same with ever one else and how change need to come and it has come forward. I stood with family and Friend who believed in it and still now they believed in it. We have a Chance of winning this fight against this corporate government. But it up to you guys who following me and watching me.

The question i’m asking is that are we going to just let them do what ever they like this corporate government or are you going start making a stand for what you believed in and start sharing my picture and tell people it time justice need to be served and that this corporate government need to leave Australia. So there can be cultural government set in place where it is for the people, by the people and in control by the people. We can Do this but I need you guys to start stepping it up now and help me make this walk for justice bigger so the future generation can look back at us and say because our grand parent where have a better life style. Now well you guys start stepping it up or are you going let me and my team stand alone for justice for every one in Canberra.

15825837_1914799318743255_8175177672514545059_nChange need to come and it only well come if we come together as one. If we what a cultural government in place said of a corporate government for multi billion air we need to work together and bring unity come forward. Unity is the only way to go forward and a way to make this country great. We need to also look after the wild life who live on the land because the world dose not just below to humans. But all who was created from the beginning of life. I know it can be done and I know you know it can be done. But first we need to put our difference to the side and start working together if there going to be any change of making this country great for our child future. But most of all every person who live here with us most respect my people land,our cultural believed and our secret site where we do law. I have see the future that this country can become better than what it is now.
