Early this morning. I never had the earge to howl at it. But I have. The dingos do sound a lot better than me, after I had turned off my alarm early one morning in the west, the dingos howling started first one, then two then three, soft and a gentle howling, no sound of aggression, just an answer to a strange sound of music they have never heard befor. Bitter sweet, they had heard the sound of the violin. They must have like it. They have good tast in music. – Noonie

Day 332: 8.30am

Got a email from The Museum of Australian Democracy.

I work at the Museum of Australian Democracy, based at Old Parliament House, across the road from the Aboriginal Tent Embassy in Canberra.

Clinton we’ve been following your journey with great interest and we’re all excited about your arrival in Canberra, especially now you’ve named the day.

We’re a museum that collects items that, amongst other things, represent people’s efforts to bring about better conditions for people and raise awareness of different issues.

I’m contacting you to see if you would be interested in donating something to the museum from your walk. We would love to be able to display something that tells visitors to the museum about your journey and what you were aiming to do. We’re thinking about something like one of your many pairs of worn out runners, or a flag or banner, or maybe something that someone gave you during the journey.

If you’re is happy to do this we could do a handover on the day of your arrival, when I imagine media will be there, to add another dimension to your arrival, or we could do it in the days afterwards, depending on what demands there are on your time.


Day 332: 11am

BBC news from London has email me asking to do a live interview over in London on Skype about the walk for justice. They most of gotten the story from The New York Time. The BBC news in London has over 44million follower. If I do it I know the British government and royal family will be watching it. The three think I be letten BBC news is that.

Opinions.1 = It time for the crown to had back the country of the land down under to the sovereign ower of this land we live on. It is because this country was never your in the first place your systems is a illegal and there is no treaty in place.

Opinions. 2 = On the behalf of my people and the Australian people we call on the Crown to come down here to deal with this matter we have with the Australian government because the Australian government is no long a sovereign British parliament. It now a Australia corporation government sin 1972 and this government put this law in place without putting it into a referendum for the people to vote on it and they a not following original constitution law.

Opinion. 3 – On the behalf of my people the sovereign people of this land. We call on the crown to Finley come forward and to ask for represent on the behalf of the crown to come down to the land down under to talk about treaty between us and the crown.

We what to move this country forward and we as a musculature people what the crown to hand back this land to Sovereign people an leave as friends. But we what governor general practice to be place by a governor culture council who is run by Sovereign elder’s and there be chairs for none indigenous. So the power is given back to the people and that this government should be over seen by the people.

This what the people of the land down under what.

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.

Melbourne Media Release

Clinton’s Walk For Justice in Naarm (Melbourne)!
March for Justice on June 6

Click on the picture to go to the Facebook Event

Time:   Tuesday, June 6, 5pm (March at 5:30pm)
Location: Begin at Parliament Gardens, march to Flinders St Station
What:   Supporters March with Clinton’s Walk For Justice

On the evening of June 6, Clinton’s Walk For Justice will join the Warriors of the Aboriginal Resistance in a march through Naarm (Melbourne), beginning at Parliament Gardens.

Clinton Pryor, a Wajuk, Balardung, Kija and Yulparitja man from Western Australia has been on his Walk For Justice since leaving Perth in September last year.

Clinton and the Walk For Justice Team are headed for Canberra, where they will deliver strong messages on behalf of the people and communities the team has met with right across the country.

Clinton says two messages are coming through very clearly from Aboriginal communities right now:

“First – our sovereignty was never ceded and our rights as the first nation peoples of this land should be recognised and respected as sovereign.

And also our elders should be given back control over our communities.”

So far Clinton and the team have travelled through the dryness of the Gibson desert, all the way to Uluru and on through the blistering heat of summer to Coober Pedy, Port Augusta and Adelaide city.

As they move through country, the team take part in traditional welcoming ceremonies and meet with local community members to hear their stories, discuss issues and take on their messages.

Now the team have crossed the border into the cold Victorian winter, and are rapidly approaching Melbourne before heading on to Sydney.

Clinton’s Walk For Justice began out of a need within Clinton to do something about the forced closure of Aboriginal communities, and that strong theme continues.

Clinton’s walk is about working together and building mutual respect between Aboriginal people, and between ALL people living on Aboriginal land here in Australia.

To hear more about Clinton’s experience and what he and the team have learned as they walked right across the country, join Clinton and the Walk For Justice team on June 6.

Quotes attributable to Clinton Pryor:

“I started this journey walking from Perth to find the truth and find a new way for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people in Australia.”

” I have never been to Melbourne before, so I don’t know what is going to happen yet, but we do know it be something to remember. Melbourne will be big.”

“In Canberra I want to bring Aboriginal leader an elders from a cross this country together, also none Indigenous people, to meet and talk about the issues our way.”

Clinton’s Walk For Justice is entirely grassroots organised and funded.

Proving that team work and Unity will get us on the right road to justice for people in this country, while giving hope and encouragement to our youth – Tanya


Day 256: 10am

I would like to have my say on this I would like to know who representing the Noongar nation the 22 country group and 40,000 of us. Those who got chosen to represent us must think about everything about the history and struggle of our pass in the south west against this government and before that. If is our council group the SWLSA council I going to let everyone know they don’t represent our people there where the once who try to give away our native title for 1.3billion but our people managed to stop it in the federal country so we keep our native title.

The think is as sovereign people we don’t what recognise from this corporate government because they not sovereign government no more and we don’t what to treaty with them. A treaty must come and only come from two sovereign nation group. If we treaty with this government we only have to look at the history of other country like our brother and sister in American and our New Zealand brother and sister what they going thought.

We must think a better way my people a cross this great land and there is a better way to save our culture, language, secret site our old people left for us to look after it and keep it alive. So hope our people in Uluru and other country group say no to recognise and say no to a treaty.


Day 256: 11.30am

Getting stronger and stronger every day on this walk. Making me think about all the community we been thought and everyone Else back at home in Perth and how family, our people, friends and other stood Strong and proud to fight for justice for our self and for every one else. We fought for our right as people and stood for our future to rebuilt after some much was lose. There well be a time when we rebuild what we lose not just for my people but for everyone else to who live here. That everyone shall live together in harmony and peace. But the future is for us to make something of if.

Day 249: 2.30pm

Hello there I just want to ask if you got a spare moment to have a read of this.

My name is Clinton Pryor and I’m just writing a story about this man you see in the photo below. So please if you go some time to have a read. Please I would love for to have a read. Some of you may know him and other’s may not know him. But to me he is my uncle and his name is Uncle Anthony Spratt from Perth Western Australia. Uncle Anthony Spratt was a Homeless man who lives around Perth, Travel up north to Darwin where he live homeless up there with long Grass people and travel to Alice springs Centre Australia. Where he when thought the aboriginal Lore to become a lore man. Before returning back to Perth where he had his last day living on the street has a homeless man.

Before he passed on I would like people to know who he was, what he did and who he helped. So please keep reading, he was a great man and I would like you to know who he was, how he help so many homeless people around Perth and how he was a homeless man himself who fought against the government with other homeless people, family and friends where he live in Perth. I what people to know this man story and I think good people in this world need they story to be told.

So please continue reading….

When he returned back to Perth he was still a homeless man in a way by going around traveling to family, friends and people he know to stay one night at the place to keep himself warm at night or get something to eat for himself and also living on the street as well with other homeless people. When he was living on the street of Perth. He used to play a guitar or busk on every corner so he can make some money for himself. When he uses to busk on the street and sing along he always had other homeless people with him. What he made from busking he use to share his money with other homeless people so they had something to eat at night. He never was a Greedy man like you see this billion air or people who have a job and a home. He was a good man in a way of having none thing but share wants he had from just singing on the street of Perth and want he made he share with other.

He cares for other in a way by helping because they had none thing like he had. He was a man who cares. If a man who was homeless that cares for other. Than why people who have it all don’t care and only care for what they have. I myself just don’t understand how this world work all well back to the story. When I first when to matagarup Heirissson Island to make a stand for closer of aboriginal community in Western Australia. I didn’t know what I was getting myself into or want I was doing but when I got to Heirisson the first to people who came up to me when I first set foot on Heirisson Island was Uncle Herbert Kenneth Bropho and Uncle Anthony Spratt. The two was just setting around the fire recording video and explaining to the camera why they was on heirisson island and why they set up camp with other more or less family to make a stand. I wait for them two to finish talking to the camera.

After they finish taking to the camera. They both call me over and I introduce myself to them both and I didn’t’ know I was safe because they was family on my mother side. In the time I was on heirisson island. I got to know uncle Anthony Spratt more and want tip of man he was. When homeless people started to came on to heirisson island when the time of closer of community and that the government was force aboriginal people out of the community. Uncle Anthony Spratt was helping out aboriginal people who lost their community and people who was homeless on the island with us in away by singing his song around the fire and also telling story about the dream time. He was doing that because he was showing the homeless on matagarup not to be afraid of the government but stand up for want you believing in even if you have lose ever thing.

Every time there was a March or rally for the forced closure of community or any other rally for aboriginal people. He was right there and ready to go and march with other. Also stand with thousands of people at parliament house and make a stand for want right. When I organise a rally for the homeless one day in forest chase in Perth. He was there and standing with other people who was homeless just likes himself. He stood his ground and March with me and other people to ask the government to start help homeless people. Before the March begin at Forrest chase. I have asked the homeless to speak out to the public and tell them why they are homeless.

When I see him there at the rally. I ask him to speak out about why he was homeless and how it was very important for the government and the public to understand why people are homeless. He speaks out very proud because he wanted people to know his story why he was homeless. When the march began he stay behind because he was getting old and he couldn’t keep up when we marched to parliament house for the homeless with family, friends and support. The rally for the homeless was his last rally and we didn’t’ know if it was the last time he was going to do something right and speak at a rally for the last time.

The next day at night after rally Uncle Anthony Spratt pass away on the street as a homeless man. But before he passes away he was giving a key to a house for the first time in over 20 years on the same day before he passes on. But he didn’t get the chance to have a home for his self because he didn’t’ know that it was his last day on earth on that day. When we had his funereal there was a lot of homeless people can to his funeral. We ask for all the homeless people to carry his coffin and have the honour to lay him to rest. He was amazing man that did want he can for the homeless.

Uncle Anthony Spratt to me is a hero and inspired uncle I know who did all this thing thought in his life and how he help some many people out.. The family, friend, support and homeless remember uncle as a hero for want he have done .This why I write this story about uncle so that people can understand want person he was and want he did in his life has a homeless man.

WARNING: Image of the deceased  

To this day a lot of public and the government have being judge homeless people in a lot way like they do drug, they alcoholics and other things. But people don’t know anything about homeless person an less you know them. Never judge a homeless man a less you know them because they mute be on of the best people in the world that God giving us. So please share this story we want people to know him want person is was.

From Clinton Pryor.

Day 250: 8.30am

[Admin Toby] In 1978 “The Longest Walk” started on the 11 of February. It was an AIM-led spiritual walk across the United States to support tribal sovereignty and bring attention to 11 pieces of anti-Indian legislation; AIM (Americal Indian Movement) believed that the proposed legislation would have abrogated Indian Treaties, quantified and limited water rights, and denied other rights to Native peoples.

The walk began with a ceremony on Alcatraz Island, where a Sacred Pipe was loaded with tobacco. The Pipe was carried the entire distance. This 3,200-mile (5,100 km) Walk’s purpose was to educate people about the US government’s continuing threat to Tribal Sovereignty; it rallied thousands representing many Indigenous Nations throughout the United States and Canada. Traditional spiritual leaders from many tribes participated, leading traditional ceremonies.

On July 15, 1978, “The Longest Walk” entered Washington D.C. with several thousand Indians and a number of non-Indian supporters. After the walkers arrived in Washington D.C., the US Congress voted against a proposed bill to abrogate treaties with Indian Nations and passed the American Indian Religious Freedom Act.
