ADELAIDE: 21 March – 12:30pm Parliament House KUALA LUMPUR 23 March – 12 noon , Australian Embassy. Contact Friends of Timor Leste, Tian Chua 60122841025 USA – East Timor Indonesia Action Network (ETAN) will be conducting an online protest March 21-25. — According to international law the maritime boundaries between Australia and East Timor should be along the halfway line, but the Australian Government refuses to acknowledge this. Two months before East Timor’s independence, Australia withdrew from the maritime boundary jurisdiction of the International Court of Justice – leaving East Timor with limited avenues to challenge Australia’s unilateral depletion of contested oil fields. During subsequent negotiations over oil and gas revenues the Australian Secret Service fitted surveillance devices inside the Timorese cabinet room so it could spy on government negotiators. The resulting temporary treaty is highly unfair to East Timor. Australia is ripping-off one of the poorest nations in Asia. It’s time we stand in solidarity with East Timor and demand that our own government resubmits to the International Court of Justice. Fievent.com | Contact | Privacy | Terms
