E Timor threatens campaign against Aust over oil deal

East Timor's Foreign Minister is threatening to launch an international campaign to pressure Australia for a bigger share of their own oil and gas royalties from the Timor Sea.

Jose Ramos Horta claims to have the support of international heavy weights, including Nelson Mandela and Bishop Desmond Tutu.

He is also preparing to enlist the support of other world names to support East Timor's case.

Mr Ramos Horta says unless Australia resumes negotiations he will lobby to have the matter put to the International Court of Justice.

"It will be Australia that has to explain to the international community why it refuses other Western democracies, that lectures other countries about international law, about human rights," he said.

"Australia will have to explain why it refuses to accept jurisdiction from the International Court of Justice."

But I'll save you're the time they are colonialists and imperialists!

Fool me twice 1-20 -Official release (BALI BOMBINGS/ETimor) Exposing the Australian government's lies about the East Timor massacres, the cover-up of the Bali bombings (including '93 WTC attack) and subsequent anti-terror legislation forced through parliament.

HoWARd Government intelligence cover-up
The Federal Opposition has described the Government's failure to release the final report into the claims of intelligence failures within the Defence Department as a cover-up.

Lest We Forget Eureka Stockade!
On October 16, 1975, five journalists filming the Indonesian invasion of East Timor, for Australian TV channels, were killed at a place called Balibo. This name seems set to become one of the rallying cries of 2nd Renaissance secession movements in Australia. The facts surrounding the Balibo killings are so damning of the central governments of Australia and Indonesia that the event will rank in Australian consciousness with the Eureka Stockade uprising of 1854.

BLACK BULLION I Jen Hughes: The Howard Government's withdrawal from the jurisdiction of the International Court of Justice and the International Tribunal on the Law of the Sea has forced East Timor to back down on their right to negotiate their Maritime Boundaries on an equal footing and access their resources for survival beyond the paternalism of Australia and other colonial powers. A film about the tension between personal friendship and the betrayal of trust for black bullion.
