UPDATE! After months of Djapwurrung and other Aboriginal people holding Vicroads at bay, yesterday vicroads attempted to start works, and police went in to camp.
There is now a blockade at the camps, and money is needed to continue to support presence on the ground and legal costs.

Thank you again to everyone who has given money!! The support is so heartwarming. The camp is going strong, but more people are always needed on the ground!

For accountability purposes and to meet go fund me policy requirements, the account linked to this campaign is the private account of Yael Leah, a member of the allies decolonising network who are helping to run this campaign in close consultation with Djapwurrung at the camp.

Funds have been, and will continue to be, delivered by directly paying for accommodation for elders, fuel costs and incidental items such as cooking gear and camp equipment, as well as other campaign costs.
Where costs can not be paid directly receipts are reimbursed to individuals who have covered the above costs.
