Support for Timor

By Dawn McEwan

SYDNEY — The struggle of the East Timorese people against Indonesian occupation was highlighted at a public meeting of 100 people at the Newtown Neighbourhood Centre on April 7.

The speaker was Robert Domm, whose interview with Fretilin leader Xanana Gusmao last September attracted international attention. Domm's talk was followed by a showing of the video Buried Alive, an account of Portuguese and then Indonesian colonisation of East Timor, which also showed the complicity of successive Australian governments.

The meeting was organised by AKSI, a solidarity group. Proceeds of the evening went to Fretilin. n
