Fighting spirit of East Timor : the life of Martinho da Costa Lopes by Rowena Lennox( Book )

10 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Martinho da Costa Lopes was the first Timorese leader of the East Timorese Catholic Church. He was born in East Timor in 1918 and educated in the traditional hierarchy of the Catholic education system. During the early 1970s he edited the church newspaper, Seara, until it was closed by the Portuguese secret police in 1973." "After the Indonesian invasion of East Timor in 1975, Dom Martinho worked tirelessly to protect human rights. He was the first person to speak out publicly within East Timor about the abuses perpetrated by the occupation forces, which attracted criticism from the Indonesian government. Under pressure from the Vatican, he resigned from the position of Apostolic Administrator and left his country in 1983. He then travelled extensively, speaking and raising awareness about East Timor. He died in Portugal in 1991." "His story is a unique and accessible behind-the-scenes account of East Timor. It will be enjoyed both by specialists and general readers keen to know more about the history and struggles of the East Timorese people."--Jacket

A woman of independence : a story of love and the birth of a new nation by Kirsty Sword Gusmão( Recording )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From her first visit to East Timor in 1990, Kirsty Sword fell in love with the country and its people and became determined to help them in their seemingly hopeless struggle for independence. Over the next decade, Kirsty worked as an undercover activist in Jakarta, becoming an increasingly valuable operative within the East Timorese independence movement. In 1994 her work brought her into contact with the jailed leader of the resistance movement, the charismatic Xanana Gusmao. Through their letters, smuggled in and out his prison, they fell in love. This unlikely but remarkable romance was tested when Kirsty was compelled to flee Indonesia one step ahead of its feared intelligence service. It was not until the fall of President Suharto and Xanana's subsequent release from prison that Kirsty was finally reunited with the revered independence leader. Working beside Xanana, Kirsty found herself at the very centre of the epic events that saw East Timor freed from Indonesian occupation: the vote for independence, the militia groups' murderous rampage that followed, the intervention of Australian and international peacekeeping forces, and the slow and painful rebuilding of a devastated country
