Summary
In 1975, after almost 400 years of Portuguese rule, the tiny island nation of East Timor (population 700,000) declared its independence. Nine days later, Indonesia (current population about 200,000,000) invaded. In the first few months, 60,000 East Timorese were killed; by now, well over 200,000 have died. Noam Chomsky calls it "perhaps the greatest death toll relative to the population since the Holocaust." Yet Indonesia's actions are supported - both diplomatically and economically - by the United States, Canada, Australia and most other Western nations. In this book, Matthew Jardine and Chomsky tell the story of East Timor's heroic resistance against all odds. They explain why you hardly ever hear about East Timor in the media, and they suggest ways you can help this long-suffering nation gain the peace, freedom and justice it deserves
