Description

This text recounts the history of the Indonesian occupation of East Timor in 1975. Vast numbers of East Timorese lost their lives, as the Indonesians quelled resistance with brutal force. In 1983, Belo was appointed apostolic administrator and began condemning Indonesian atrocities. He was ordained Bishop in 1988 and called on the UN Secretary General to intervene and allow a referendum on independence in 1989 following easing of the Indonesian restrictions on access to and from East Timor.show more
