East Timor Action

Westlake Mall Photos (December 7, 1996)

The United States and Indonesia have been partners in crime for the duration of the occupation of East Timor. The US has supplied Indonesia with over $1 billion in arms in the past 21 years during the Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, and Clinton administrations, during a period where 200,000 East Timorese--or 1/3 of the population lost their lives.

Indonesian soldiers opened fire on a crowd of thousands of protesters in 1991, killing 271.
