  • Don’t forget East Timor

Former Bishop Emeritus of the Japanese Catholic Council for Justice and Peace, Bishop Aloisius Nobuo Soma begins his address by emphasising the UN’s primary role in facilitating self-determination and the independence of former colonies. He argues that the Indonesian government’s behaviour towards East Timor has completely gone against this priority and has deprived Timor of its rightful independence from Portugal. The Bishop emphasises the eight resolutions passed by the UN and Indonesia’s ignorance of them. Next, the Bishop makes an appeal to Indonesia and its core principles asking it to respect the rights of the Timorese and establish peace. The Bishop then explains that despite the treatment the people of East Timor have received from Indonesia, the former do not intend to cause any issues for the latter should they become independent. The Bishop then appeals to the UN to use its power to rectify the situation of the East Timorese while emphasising a Timorese Bishop’s call for decolonisation. He describes the transnational religious advocacy network surrounding the plight of the Timorese. He discusses the importance of NGOs in educating the public and pressuring governments to act. The Bishops ends his speech with a pledge of solidarity with the East Timorese.

The Report and Proceedings of APCET was published by the University of the Philippines in Dilman, Quezon City, Philippines.

  • 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.
