Scope and content

Journal "Timor Leste" no. 2, October 4, 1975
This issue contains: a letter from FRENTILIN to its members calling for union in such difficult times, mostly saying that the foreign forces would try to explore the so-called “tribalism” and arguing that the various groups involved in the revolution (Armed Forces, Militias, Civil Society and so on) should be united and resolve their problems and disagreements through discussion. The editorial discusses the ex-commander Lemos Pires and his approximation with UDT, with the Portuguese government choosing to remain in silence. An article calls on the people to leave aside all their old practices (like racism) in benefit of the revolution’s success and, therefore, allow for the rise of a new society. Other important information includes the support of 49 foreign governments for FRETILIN, as well as of organized groups of civil society (like Australian student groups).
