This is a photo from man name Elijah McColl who was protecting in the middle east for the right of Palestinian. He also wearing our flag. I have ask him why was you protecting for and this what he said. I was there in Feburary 2015 in a town called Bil’in (near Ramallah) in the Occupied West Bank (Palestine) which has been protesting weekly against the apartheid wall and settlements taking their land for over 10 years. I was taken there by the Israeli anarchists against the wall who attend every week. I wore the shirt as a sign of solidarity to indigenous movements during the protest. We were dispersed with tear gas, rubber coated steel bullets and live bullets during this time, but thankfully no one was hurt at this protest.
If you what to know more the info about Bil’in, the film Five Broken Cameras follows one of the men in the village as he filmed their struggle against the Israeli apartheid system. I would recommend following Iyad Burnat and Emad Burnat to keep up to date.

I spend the today walking around Uluru, much was not to be photographed, but you would need to be at its base to see what it is really like. Some places can be photos but to be there, is to see that it is Uluru, not the rock in the center of Australia.
The walk track takes you to very peaceful and beautiful places, that to be there, then you can describe it in your words. To be there is to see Uluru as it should be seen. Even had a walk on Uluru, apart of the track allows you to walk on it, if highs are scary for you, then this is good for you, not very high, but don’t trip over, it is solid rock.- Noonie

When we was at Wiluna. This two statue is to honor the last of the nomad’s. The two old people who was find out in the Gibson Desert name where Warri and Yatungka. Warri and Yatungka were believed to be the last of the Mandildjara tribe of the desert nomads to live permanently in the traditional way. Their deaths in the late 1970s marked the end of a tribal lifestyle that stretched back more than 30,000 years.
I think about this two amazing people that they name well live on through out the century to come and that our people well know that this two were the last two people in our culture way. Who live the old way before our people change in to this modern world we live now. I still reading the book and I up to page 52 now and it starting to make me understand more about this two and how they live they life before passing on.

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
Would hardly make a scratch upon a wall
But first week he got a 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
Day 58: 12.30pm
[Admin Jake] One of Clinton’s friends and supporters had been discussing a pair of painted up steel capped boots for Clinton.
About two to three weeks ago, Marcia sent her finished artwork off from Queensland to her partner Wazza in Perth. Wazza and his Dad then drove the boots out to Clinton over the space of a couple of days, past Kalgoorlie and handed them over to Clinton. Below are a few beautiful pics that only just touch on the story.
The boots also accompanied a letter from Ngallagunda remote community which Clinton is reading in one if the photos, which they wish for Clinton to present to Mr Turnbull in Canberra.
Thank you to Marcia, Wazza and Wazza’s Dad and the Ngallagunda remote conmunity and everyone else that contributes to Clinton’s journey.
Much love! You are all fantastic!
“These shoes were donated to bring the situation at ‘Ngallagunda Remote Aboriginal Community’ to the public. They have tried to silence us through threats and intimidation but the world needs to know what is happening on these cattle stations and how morally bankrupt people are actively and persistently working to take over our aboriginal run stations. If there is someone reading this who has any kind of legal or social background that can lend advise or time the mob at Ngallagunda will welcome conversation with you. Pm me and I can put you in touch with them. Thank you for all the kind words also. And Clinton, you’re a legend – you will go down in history.” – Marcia

We on our way back to Leonora town. To rest up and get back into the walk a gain. Tomorrow the walk will start from Leonora on to Laverton than to Warburton town.
Good morning all firstly I just wanted to thanks Richard & Sandra Evens from Leonora town for doing a welcome to country and doing a BBQ when we first arrive in Leonora town and doing a dinner over they place where we meet the elders and talking with them about want being happen in Leonora town.
Also just wanted to thank Jill Ashwin for helping us and letting us stay at her place to rest up and get supply again for the walk we need for the desert road.
Now we are now on our way walking to Laverton town and mute be off Facebook for about 3 days guys. O.k but see how it go. I well be back on Facebook when I can.
I get closer and closer everyday to this spot that I screen shot from the computer couple month back. This spot is the last road before it changes to dirt road call the Central Desert Road from Laverton, Warburton and on to Uluru the heart land people. I get closer and closer to the hardest part of the walk and it well be hard because the temperature can get up to 50 degree’s and also negative 7 degrees. But also fire, hot wind and the ground get hot as well. Nature itself is the only thing against me on this center desert road.
Everyone on Facebook, the media, the Government, the nation and the world it self well be watching this part of the walk to see if I can do it or give up and go back to Perth. All eyes well be watching this part of the walk. If I make it or pass it. It well explode all over social media everyone well be talking about it.
I know in my heart I can do this and I well never give up or give in because I choose to believe in my self that I can do this part. The support and the love I get from family, my people, my Friends, the followers, the country and the world it self well give me the strength to push through this part of the walk and to get justice for my people and for this country.
But I think to my self what do people say about me or talk to other about me when I do this part. I know I well go down in the history book, come Australia icon and my people well tell story about me when I’m gone from this earth. But well it change this country to change it way. All I want is for my culture to live on for other 60,000 years or more and think to get better for my people.
But most of all to seen this country come together and seen a Aboriginal leader running this country. But also start working on building a better country and a better world for all life who live on it that share this world with us. But in the end I choose to believe and I well never stop until I see this dream happen when I’m alive.
We have done some much scene and acting with NITV. It was like we was making a movie and I feel that tired I just wanted to go to bed or go to the pub for a beer. But it good NITV are following us and filming the walk. I think they going to made a documentary or mite turn it in to a movie after the walk is finish. Also I just wanted to thank NITV for giving us a satellite phone to help us keep in connected with family and friend because now we a entering the hardest part of the walk that could lead to death or not. But we are ready and cannot wait to start the walk from Laverton on to Warburton.
Just sitting down on the side of the road watching the sun set and thinking about a lot of issues that we hear from elders and community leader we pass. Those who like to meet us in Laverton we be there in two days from now.
One of the things we love about Clintons Walk for Justice, is that its a community supported effort, we just couldn’t do it without you.
This amazing woman collected some donated trainers and hand delivered them to Clinton🙂
Thanks Keesha for driving and delivering and thanks to Portia for donating some shoes.
– Admin Lisa 🙂
