AFTER almost a year on the road walking the nearly 6000 kilometres from Perth to Canberra, Clinton Pryor’s protest about the issues facing indigenous Australians ended at the Tent Embassy today (Sunday, September 3).

Mr Pryor, 27, is a Wajuk, Balardung, Kija and a Yulparitja man from the west and his “Walk for Justice” was a protest at the closure of indigenous communities in WA.

Having met with Aboriginal elders and community leaders across WA, the NT, SA, Victoria and NSW during his walk, Mr Pryor aims to speak to members of the government and the Governor-General about issues facing indigenous communities.

A welcoming corroboree at the tent embassy on Sunday afternoon to celebrate Mr Pryor’s arrival was not without incident as the AFP took a parked car away to be searched for bomb believed to be on board. Nothing was found.
