Clinton Pryor’s Walk for Justice will come through Port Augusta on Wednesday March 8, in an expected scene of passion and spirit that he hopes to bring Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians together.
In September 2016, he left from Matargarup, near Perth, to Uluru, Coober Pedy, on his way to Canberra.
Clinton said there have been testing conditions such as the harsh West Australian desert, but he said his cause keeps him going.
“As a young kid, I grew up in a community with my mother and she would teach me a lot about our culture and our way of life … and I wanted to make a change,” he said.
Clinton’s walk means the Baluch Bridge will be closed from 10am-11am on Wednesday March 8.
The designated meeting point is the Standpipe Motel, with people encouraged to gather at 10am.
Clinton said he is doing the walk because he not want to see communities closed down and see his people lose their home because the government has decided not fund services for them.
