It might be called the Long Walk Women’s Luncheon, but plenty of men turned up to support a very worthy cause held in Adelaide last week.
The Long Walk charity has grown out of Michael Long’s walk from Melbourne to Canberra in late 2004 to highlight concerns about the situation of Indigenous people.
As patron of The Long Walk, Michael was at the luncheon to emphasise that it isn’t about Indigneous and white Australians but it’s about all Australians. The Womens’ luncheons are also held in Melbourne and Darwin to honour Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women.
Christine Brown from Nunga Wangga asked Michael how long the luncheons had been happening here. She also spoke to Lesley Turner, Michael Long’s partner and Paul Caica, the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs.
