One man’s march for indigenous rights

Sabah Mannan

Clinton Pryor is walking 5,580 km across Australia. In 11 months, he has passed through deserts, forests and remote towns to campaign for the rights of Aboriginal people. Clinton Pryor said that he has seen the injustice that happens in the area with his very own eyes. “Conditions how our people are living, lack of services and jobs, unhealthy water are the big reason” he said.
From Perth in the west to Sydney in the east he’s held dozen of rallies. He wants the Government to acknowledge the Aboriginal sovereignty, by agreeing to sign a treaty with Australia’s indigenous people. Clinton said that they cry for the treaty so things improve and they can take care of their people themselves. Clinton is heading to Canberra where he wants to meet the prime minister. He hopes his effort with be worth it. Pryor has been through six pairs of shoes and is currently on his seventh pair. His body was starving at the start so he trained his body to eat less and cover longer distance; water has also helped him to keep going. Although he has spent a year of his life walking, Clinton is already talking about doing it again in a few decades
