The message stick will be formally received by Indigenous Leaders of the Australian Aboriginal Tent Embassy on the 25 May 2010. The message stick asks Mr Rudd to protect our natural environment for our children, grandchildren and their great grandchildren. “Country is important to all of us, particularly with climate change and governments considering dangerous nuclear energy” states June Norman whilst sitting on the road side outside Port Macquarie.
The team is about half way to Canberra to meet Traditional Owners of the Australian Aboriginal Tent Embassy on the 25 May 2010.

Come on, come and join us, this is a once and life time opportunity to walk with pride and in partnership with our Indigenous brothers and sisters” states June.
