A statement was signed by all represented Nations in support of ending genocide of peoples, lands and waters and demanding a treaty negotiation process to be entered into with the Crown.

Indigenous people and Supporters attended and supported the establishment of the fire and participated in a ceremony of respect for the fire. Thanks were offered to the Bunerong people, the owners of the land, for permission to camp there. Wood donated by the Yorta Yorta and Barapabarapa peoples was also added to the fire.
