'My name is Bill Simon. I’m actually an ordained Reverend on the block here in Redfern. I give communion, I can do marriages, I can do funeral services and I go into Long Bay Jail and marry guys in there, marry white businessmen under the Harbour Bridge, I’ve done all that, I’ve married people here on the block actually. Looking back onto where I came from I’m Biripi, that means I’m in the Shark Tribe, I was born up in Taree Purfleet Mission. ...'
