East Timor & the Western Democracies


Spokesman Pamphlet 67



by Noam Chomsky

An address given to the International Conference on East Timor, in Lisbon, May 1979. Chomsky sets out the woeful response to these events from the West. This is significant in itself, both then, and in relation to the continuing atrocities committed on the East Tomorise in recent times. The Indonesian aggression could not have taken place and could not have continued without the crucial support of the Western industrial democracies, and their ‘free press’.
