Together we go hand in hand You take us off our land You are damaging our future generation Together we stand as one nation Listen to our pleads You are taking away our needs We love to hunt on land Bare feet on the hot sand We hunt in the sea So wild and free We are simple and original We are the Australian Aboriginal We love our culture and are very traditional This is not fair Do you really care?
Sharon wrote this poem in March 2015 in response to the Western Australian government's plans to close and bulldoze more than 120 Aboriginal communities it deemed "not viable".
