East Timor: From 'slavery & oppression & tyranny' to freedom

  • CAPPPNAtour1993
  • Item
  • April, 1993

Titled, East Timor: From ‘slavery & oppression & tyranny to freedom, it was presented by Abé Barreto Soares during the National Council of Maubere Resistance (CNRM) tour of North America, April 1993. It begins with Soares’ description of his experience and observations after the Indonesia military invaded East Timor in December of 1975. Soares explains his decision to join Renetil, the East Timorese students’ resistance organisation at Java’s Gadjah Mada University. He explains that the Santa Cruz massacre and subsequent arrest of his friends of Renetil compelled him to seek asylum in Canada. Next, he explains that although he does not fear arrest for speaking out, he worries about repercussions for his family and friends in East Timor. He then dispels the Indonesian narrative that the Timorese voted to become the 27th province of the Republic of Indonesia. Finally, Soares discusses the legacy of the Santa Cruz massacre and reminds listeners that the struggle against Indonesian occupation and human rights abuses will continue in East Timor so long as the Indonesian military remains in there.

  • Item
  • 1987

This document was sourced from Pacific Peoples’ Partnership (PPP).
Titled, Financing Ecological Destruction, The World Bank and the IMF, the article was published in 1987. Its first section, titled Five Fatal Projects, presents growing concerns over the ecological impact of World Bank projects and expresses support for World Bank solutions to these critiques. Its second section, “Indonesia: Transmigration”, describes a World Bank sponsored project that would move hundreds of thousands of families and destroy 3.3 million hectares of tropical rainforest. It argues that no further World Bank investments into the project should be approved before five conditions are met that promote ecological integrity and the rights of Indigenous peoples.
