SYDNEY — Leaving the Crocodile documents 25 years of the struggle for independence by Sydney's East Timorese community and national and international solidarity groups. Co-curator of the exhibition Manuel Branco, one of many East Timorese people who fled to Australia after the invasion of East Timor, says the exhibition was developed to empower Timorese people living in Sydney and provide a mens for them to tell the stories of their participation in the freedom struggle. Leaving the Crocodile features hundreds of images of political protests. The exhibition runs until December 15 at the Liverpool Regional Museum, corner of Hume Highway and Congressional Drive, Liverpool. Admission is free.
