Peter Hanley

community activist in Townsville Australia

My favourite saying is "The noble Art of losing face may one day save the human race" - this saying is from Danish Mathematician Piet Hein. Piet Hein is one of my heroes and is a wonderful example of someone who integrated his creative and academic sides (whole brain as opposed to left or right brain).

Australia's response to Refugees

BY PETER HANLEY
@ VOL 15 ON JUN 15, 2017

Peter Hanley asks "What happened to the boundless plains? What happened to sharing?" As Vice-President of the Queensland Northern NSW Branch of Amnesty International, his fervent desire is that we treat people coming to Australia seeking safety with humanity and compassion.

The topic is timely as the week 18-24 June is celebrated around Australia as Refugee Week.
