The Asia-Pacific Conference on East Timor (APCET) Report and Proceedings

This document is an excerpt from the Asia-Pacific Conference on East Timor (APCET) Report and Proceedings. The conference was held from May 31 – June 5, 1994.

This document contains:

  • East Timor: History, Testimonies and Perspectives

In his address, English filmmaker and journalist Max Stahl attempts to provide the perspective of a foreigner who had only recently become engaged in the struggle of East Timor. Stahl had recorded the November 12th, 1991 Dili massacre, exposing it to the world. He notes the lack of media interest in the East Timor situation for many years. He explains his disbelief when world powers supported the Indonesian government despite its repression of East Timor. He then details the preparations of the East Timorese resistance movement leading up to the eventually cancelled visit of the Portuguese delegation.
Stahl explains why Timorese resistors chose to march to the Santa Cruz cemetery and details a small altercation between demonstrators and the Indonesian military that would be used to justify a massacre. After describing this massacre, Stahl emphasises the plurality of massacres of the Timorese. He also presents an eyewitness account from a man beaten by Indonesian soldiers and brought along with other dead and wounded protestors to a mortuary. Stahl explains that many demonstrators who had survived the initial attack were killed there. Finally, he emphasises the lack of information the massacred victims’ families received and the justice the people of East Timor seek.
The Report and Proceedings of APCET was published by the University of the Philippines in Dilman, Quezon City, Philippines.

The Right Hon. John Major MP

The East Timorese refugees writing this letter convey the following concerns to John Major: they ask why the situation in East Timor was not brought up during the Lisbon Summit; the writers ask that John Major ensures that Indonesia will not receive economic assistance from Britain until human rights violations in East Timor end; they urge that the British government does not agree to sell forty Hawk fighter-trainers to Indonesia; the writers call for the British Prime Minister to use his authority to aid those who have been imprisoned in the Santa Cruz Massacre.
