A AA AAAA The A-Infos News Service AA AA AA AA INFOSINFOSINFOS AAAA AAAA AAAAA AAAAA The joint 1996 Nobel Peace Prize winner, Jose Ramos Horta, spoke to a large and diverse gathering in Adelaide, Australia last Friday (7/2/97) night. This was just one of his many appearances on an Australia-wide tour during which Horta has made clear the total lack of moral backbone of Australia's leaders since the Indonesian invasion of Timor in 1975. On being introduced to the large crowd that had gathered in the Maughan Church, Horta was greeted by a long and hearty standing ovation given to him by an emotional crowd. Horta dedicated his Nobel Prize to the people of Timor and the now imprisoned Xanana Gusmao, who he considered to have been a person much more worthy of the Prize, describing his success as a very pleasant suprise and praising his fellow Laureate Bishop Bello. While most of the crowd was undoubtedly aware of the history of Indonesia's invasion of Timor, Horta gave a brief history of both his and Timor's struggle against the deadly combination of the Indonesian dictatorship's armed forces and the world's apathy. The duplicity of the United Nation's Security Council and the cynicism of the world's leaders was made clear by Horta, who pointed out that the suggested peace plan suggested by the Timorese for many years was the blueprint for the Israeli/Palestine agreement brokered last year.

More than 125 women's rights activists from 14 countries and 22 U.S. states signed the statement, which was released less than a week before East Timor's independence. On Monday East Timorese Foreign Minister Jose Ramos Horta spoke to reporters at a cultural event in Dili, including Australian reporter Lindsay Murdoch, who was recently now banned from Indonesia for his reporting on Aceh and East Timor. Horta spoke about Indonesian and international responsibility for crimes against humanity committed in East Timor. Guest:

TRAVELS TO EAST TIMOR: A LOOK AT THE ISLAND NATION'S LONG JOURNEY FROM INVASION, TO ANNIHILATION, TO INDEPENDENCE Seven days from now, on May 20, 2002, the tiny half-island of East Timor will achieve its independence and become a new nation. It's a rare moment in history made all the more extraordinary by the incredible suffering of the East Timorese over the last 27 years. When I first traveled to East Timor 12 years ago in 1990, East Timor was one of the most repressive places on earth, occupied at that time for fifteen years by the brutal Indonesian military and supported by the silence of the media, and US guns, money and political clout. When I returned in 1991, journalist Allan Nairn and I witnessed Indonesian troops using their US M16s to slaughter hundreds of Timorese in a commemoration procession to the Santa Cruz cemetery. The Santa Cruz massacre galvanized an international movement to support independence for East Timor and hardened the determination of a new generation of Timorese activists to challenge the Indonesian occupation. In the fateful days of August and September 1999, the East Timorese turned out in overwhelming numbers to vote for their independence in a UN-sponsored referendum, only to have the Indonesian military and its militia allies burn East Timor to the ground, displace the population and kill thousands of people, while the US and other powerful nations looked on in silence.

His younger brother, Arsenio Horta, after joining the Fretilin army, surrendered and was received by the Indonesian Government and appointed as a member of parliament in Dili. But, he never felt at home living in Dili, fighting for the people aspirations, rather he left East Timor and now lives in Australia. Is a person like that a spokesman of the people ? Or did they use East Timor for their gain? Is it suitable for people like that to be awarded Nobel Peace Prize ?
(Abilio Jose Osorio Soares, Governor, Province of East Timor - October 17, 1996) Ramos-Horta is the more colorful of the laureates, inspiring the Indonesian government to accuse him of squandering charitable donations intended for the guerrillas on the globe trotting and high living. In 1975 Ramos-Horta became "foreign minister" of the government formed by the Revolutionary Front for an Independent East Timor, or Fretilin. In a battle among four political parties following Portugal's 1974 withdrawal from its colony. Fretilin slaughtered members of other groups but won the fight and declared an independent nation.

Rivals congratulate Nobel winner
In August 1975 a brief but bitter civil war in East Timor pitted Fretilin against the UDT. It was the prelude to Indonesian annexation. Since then, rivalry has hampered East Timorese cooperation, and been exploited by Indonesian government spokespersons. In this generous statement the UDT speaks openly about the past, and embraces Nobel Peace Prize winner Jose Ramos- Horta. The Supreme Political council of the Timorese Democratic Union (UDT) welcomes the announcement by the Nobel Peace Committee that the 1966 winners of the Nobel Peace Prize are two East Timorese, Bishop Carlos Ximenes Belo and Mr Jose Ramos-Horta. We extend to our two compatriots our most heartfelt congratulations. Within minutes of the announcement of the award, UDT leaders and militants sent numerous messages to the two winners. Now, the UDT leadership wishes to issue a more detailed account of UDT views about the role of Mr Ramos-Horta in more than two decades of dedicated and tireless efforts towards our common cause. The Indonesian government and media have engaged in a grotesque slander campaign against Mr Jose Ramos-Horta, as they did against Bishop Carlos Ximenes Belo in the fall of 1995, on the eve of the Nobel Peace Committee's announcement of the 1995 winners. Most international observers were predicting in 1995 that Bishop Belo was going to be the winner that year. There were even orchestrated street demonstrations in Indonesia and petitions denouncing Bishop Belo. Now it is Mr Ramos-Horta who is being denounced and called all sorts of names.

    Jose Ramos Horta sees independent East Timor as a regional player, bolstered by oil and gas revenues and able to develop relations with Indonesia that preclude the need for excessive troops on their borders. THE MAIN international lobbyist for East Timorese independence since the Indonesian invasion in December 1975, Jose Ramos Horta is now cabinet member for foreign affairs in the United Nations-guided interim administration of the territory, awaiting full independence in April or May next year. His relentless efforts earned him the 1996 Nobel Peace Prize, which he shared with Bishop Carlos Beloanother staunch opponent of Indonesia's military rule over East Timor, which ended when the UN intervened two years ago.

Among his stops were the Annual Congress of the World Taiwanese Association, headquarters of several political parties, some govern-mental offices, and the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan. To the former foreign minister of the now occupied East Timor, Taiwan s situation is similar to his homeland, and he has some words on the struggles for independence to share with the Taiwanese. Both in his meeting with the Presby-terian leaders and in his Nobel Prize acceptance speech Ramos Horta had said Taiwan should join the United Nations and the UN should let Taiwan in. To become an UN member, Taiwan should first aim toward becoming an observer. The most important thing on trying to becoming an UN observer, said Horta, is to abandon the name the Republic of China and the belief that [the govern-ment of] Taiwan can represent China. Horta explains that, through becoming an UN observer, with the name

    June 27, 1997 San Francisco Dr. Jose Ramos-Horta is the most recent recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize (shared with Bishop Belo) for his leadership of the movement for self-determination of East Timor, in Southeast Asia. The American Reporter interviewed Dr. Horta in his hotel suite in San Francisco, June 1997. In Part One, he discussed China, the so-called "Asian Values" bloc, Indonesia's General Suharto, and his disappointment with U.S. recognition and aid. On Resisting Hatred AR: You have stated, "Sometimes in history, individuals in power are driven to commit wanton crimes, but those who survive and are in power today should resist the temptation to exact revenge in the name of justice."

    Profiles Xanana Gusmao BJ Habibie Bishop Carlos Belo
    Jose Ramos Horta

    Xanana Gusmao Xanana Gusmao
    Jose Alexandre Gusamo (aka Kai Rala Xanana Gusmao) was born in the Laleia, Manatut on June 20 1946, the second son in a family of 9 children. He was educated at a Catholic mission and spent four years at the Jesuit seminary in Dare, near the capital Dili. Following completion of three years compulsory service in the Portugese army, he worked in local government. When the left wing coup occurred in Portugal in 1974, Gusmao emigrated to Australia and then returned to East Timor and joined the Fretilin (Revolutionary Front for the Independence of East Timor) party. During the 1975 General Elections, Fretilin won a majority vote and an Independent Republic was declared. On December 7 1975 Indonesia invaded East Timor and Gusmao retreated to the mountains with his compatriots to continue the struggle for independence. In the period 1978-1979 the majority of the key figures in Fretilin and Falintil (the military wing of Fretilin) were killed and Gusmao became leader of Falinitl in 1979 - a position he holds to this day. Gusmao eluded capture for 13 years before being arrested and sentenced to life-imprisonment for subversion in 1992. This sentence was subsequently commuted to 20 years. He was released from house arrest on September 7 1999, a week after the referendum. Gusmao is seen by many as the man capable of uniting the troubled region, he however has maintained that there are more capable candidates.

    97. The Nobel Prize
    What the Indonesian Government finds difficult to understand is the choice of JoseRamos Horta as recipient of the nobel Peace Prize alongside Bishop Belo.
    Press Statement
    On 11 October 1996, the Nobel Prize Committee announced its decision to award Bishop Carlos Felipe Ximenes Belo and Jose Ramos Horta, in two equal parts, the Nobel Prize for Peace for 1996.
    The Indonesian Government has always shared Bishop Belo's determination to enhance the welfare and well­being of the people of East Timor and to ensure that they live in peace in an atmosphere of religious freedom and tolerance. The growth in the number of adherents of the Catholic religion and other religions in East Timor as well as the dramatic increase in the number of churches in the province attest to this fact. The Nobel Prize Committee has also stated that Bishop Belo has "tried to create a just settlement based on his people's right to self­determination." On this matter, it is pertinent to note that Bishop Belo himself, in his pastoral letter of August 1994, took the position that he opposed referendum in East Timor as he believed that it would lead to renewed civil war in the province. Bishop Belo has also supported endeavours at reconciliation among the East Timorese, a process that the Indonesian Government has wholeheartedly encouraged, supported and promoted. It is no wonder therefore that his claims to being a spokesman for the people of East Timor has been firmly and repeatedly rejected by the overwhelming majority of the East Timorese people.

Raise Your Voice on Behalf of East Timor Do you remember? One year ago the catholic Bishop Carlos Ximenes Belo and his fellow countryman Jose Ramos Horta received the Nobel Peace Prize for their engagement for a peaceful solution of the East Timor conflict. The former Portuguese colony has been unlawfully occupied by the Indonesian government for 22 years. During this time a genocide took place. More than 200,000 people have died because of massacres, arbitrary executions and a famine blockade. The United Nations never recognised the annexation because it violates the right to self-determination. The award of the Nobel Peace Prize put East Timor briefly in the public limelight. It supplied the people of East Timor with hope and a new self-confidence. Not only they but people all over the world related the Nobel Peace Prize to a hope for a peaceful solution to the violent conflict. They include the church relief organisation missio which has given support to Bishop Belo and Jose Ramos Horta for many years.
