Laneway

 

The St Jerome Laneway Festival is on this Sunday from 10am till 9pm, so it will be busy in good old Freo, because the Fremantle Dockers women AFL team will play their first game of the season at Fremantle Oval as well, so be prepared for having to look for parking spots and traffic restrictions in the far west end of town.

And for those who want to jump the fence and get a free concert on Sunday, be aware that you will be prosecuted and end up before court.

BIG FACEBOOK LIKE FOR MUSLIM HOMELESS RUN

Posted in charity, city of fremantle, homeless, multicultural, muslim, Uncategorized by freoview on February 11, 2018

 

There has been an amazing interest for this blog post on Facebook, which I published a few weeks ago.

All my Freo’s View blog articles are automatically shared on Facebook and Twitter, but this one about the Muslim Perth Homeless Run has created the most response I have had on FB with 268 LIKEs so far and 88 people sharing the post.

For those who missed it here is a re-run.

Perth Homeless Run

I finally caught up today with six handsome Muslim men from the Perth Homeless Run. I have noticed them for several months on Sundays when they come to Fremantle to offer food, cold drinks, and today even icecream to the homeless people around town. They also do it in Northbridge on Friday night they told me.

With all the negativity about Muslims supposedly not integrating it is important to show that the reality is quite different and that Australian Muslims make a very positive contribution to society. Well done gentlemen!

MALALA WINS NOBEL PEACE PRIZE

Malala Yousafzai

This is not a Fremantle story but it is one many of us cried about. MALALA YOUSAFZAY, who was shot in the head by the Taliban because she spoke out about education for girls in her country, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize jointly with Kailash Satyarthi.

They were awarded the prestigious prize “For their struggle against surpression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education.”

It is a reminder to all of us that “When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.”

I believe it is our duty in Australia to engage in the privilege of the democratic process and to stand up for minority groups and social justice.
