Waddamuli (Welcome/talk again)
Hi I'm Coedie, aka Coodz Mac,
You may have seen me make a stand, although you may not know what I'm standing for.
I am exercising my legal right to occupy and practise my culture on traditional Wangan and Jagalingou lands. I am Legally camping/practising culture on a 'Pastoral Lease' held by Adani.
Adani’s mine is going to heat up the planet. They’re going to tap into the Great Artesian Basin and poison the waterholes. They're going to (supposedly) relocate the Black Throated Finch, which is only native to two places in the world.
I am a self employed entertainer and cultural educator. I have worked as a street entertainer for the past 24 years, spending the last 3 years as a resident busker in Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast. Being a busker, recent events have made my job essentially non-existent, as it relies on crowds.
I have been living on country practising culture. Making a stand and fighting for my people's legal right to protect the land, water and animals.
I am doing all of this, surviving on savings and some supporter donations. I do not, and never have, accepted handouts from the government.
I am passionate about preserving what we have left! so this is why I set up this "Gofundme".
No matter if you have found yourself here through a video, through a friend or through your conscience; you can join the fight!
The funds raised will go to:
- Food, bills and incidentals.
- 4wd vehicle hire/buy
- New camping gear
- Medical supplies
- Camp toilets and showers
- Equipment and supplies for cultural practices and ceremonies
eg. tools to make boomerangs, materials for ceremonies etc
Help me stay on country as long as possible. Your generosity will help me stay here and make a change for me, for you and all our future generations.
