This document was sourced from Pacific Peoples’ Partnership (PPP).

Geraldo Magno begins by acknowledging the conference’s occurrence on Maori land and emphasising East Timorese indigenous origins. He then describes East Timor’s political situation and discusses Indonesian policies of genocide in the country. Magno emphasises the consolidation of East Timorese identity since the Indonesian invasion and discusses his people’s armed struggle. He then presents victories of his movement and argues the signing of the Timor Gap agreement between Indonesia and Australia is a violation of East Timor’s right to self-determination.

Colonizing East Timor: Indonesia and Australia’s Oil Drilling Plans

This document was sourced from Pacific Peoples’ Partnership (PPP).
Titled, Colonizing East Timor: Indonesia and Australia’s Oil Drilling Plans, the article was written by Allan Nairn in the Petrochemical age section of the July/August 1991 issue of Multinational Monitor. The article argues that Australia is reaping rewards from Indonesia’s invasion of East Timor by extracting the oil of East Timor’s seabed through the Timor Gap Treaty. It signed the treaty with Indonesia in 1989. The article features a quote from Jose Ramos Horta that argues the hypocrisy of Australia as it concurrently joined a war against Iraq in the name of international law while saying that Indonesia was not precluded by international law from invading Timor. Next, the article presents the comments of Dick Woolcott, the Australian ambassador to Indonesia, on the Indonesian invasion of Timor. It then explains that oil company research in the early 1970s had estimated that the disputed waters between Australian and Timor could hold vast amounts of oil and natural gas. Finally, the article argues that the Timor Gap Treaty is the first international agreement that formally legitimizes the Indonesian annexation of Timor and presents Portugal’s challenge to Australia over the treaty in the World Court.

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:

  • 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.

  8. Memorandum, Permanent Representative of Portugal to the United Nations
    New York, Atauro, Atambua, Kupang, Batugade, Deatapupu, Jakarta
    This Memorandum outlines how when the Portuguese administration of Timor was transferred to the Island of Atauro, Portuguese soldiers were taken as prisoners by the Indonesian and UDT forces. A group of 19 Portuguese soldiers were taken prisoner by UDT and detained near the town of Batugade on August 27. On September 3, a group of 5 Portuguese soldiers who were supposed to be repatriated by airplane were instead taken to Kupang then transferred and detained in Batugade. Indonesia claims the Portuguese were imprisoned solely because of the actions of UDT. This assertion was tested by a testimony by International Red Cross regional representative Dr. Testuz. Dr. Testuz claimed he found Portuguese prisoners in Indonesian territory and led them to the village of Deatapupu where he left the prisoners under the protection of local Indonesian police. The knowledge of Dr. Testuz’ report cause the Indonesian government to send a note requesting a prompt repatriation of the Portuguese soldiers. The Indonesian Government is therefore involved in the situation not only because they openly support the actions of UDT but because the Portuguese soldiers detained were under the custody of Indonesian police authorities in Indonesian territory.
