Four women have started their long walk
I've just got news that four Indigenous women are walking from Geelong to Melbourne to support the Long Walk.
The The Long Walk website reports:
On Thursday 1 December 2005, Merryn Edwards, Jacqui Marion, Julie Phillips and Patricia Atkinson-Sinclair will walk from Geelong to Melbourne in support of The Long Walk 2005. The friends will then end their journey on Sunday 4th December where they will join Michael Long at Princes Park. These four proud Indigenous women walked with Michael Long in 2004, on his journey to Canberra to talk to the Prime Minister.Amazing! Good onya! That's 75 km! And it's pissing down with rain in Melbourne right now. I hate to think what it's like for them on their walk!
