Scope and content

Journal "Timor Leste" no. 3, October 11, 1975
This issue contains: the declaration of the statute of FRETILIN, which contains the organizational chart of the institution; the first sign of discussions between FRETILIN and the government of Portugal, breaking the silence between them; another mention to the support of FRETILIN’s cause by the Australian civil society group called “FRETILIN’s Friends”, who did a protest outside of the Indonesian embassy in Sydney; an explanation about the objectives of the Revolution that FRETILIN wanted to achieve for Timorese society, explaining that Revolution is not only based on arms, but on deep societal transformation of habits as well. The old habits, that the journal calls “fascist”, must be forgotten and replaced by new ones, such as respect for all and, above all, for the defenseless; finally, it provides information about the return of Colonel Lemos Pires to the country.
