Please read article, cited after the quote. Articles open in a new window.

A group of Indigenous activists and community members have begun a 17-day walk from Sydney to Canberra seeking an end to the Northern Territory intervention.

They set off from Botany Bay before 0600 (AEDT) on Friday morning and plan to arrive at the Tent Embassy in the national capital on Australia Day.

The activists will also converge on Parliament House on February 3 – the first day back for federal parliament in 2009 – to protest for Aboriginal human rights.
