background

East Timor owes its land, and the Indonesian land as a whole, to the fact that

it was colonized by the Portuguese, not the Dutch (an agreement dividing the

island between the two powers was signed in 1915). Colonial rule was

replaced by the Japanese during World War II, whose hold a resistance

movement. And 60,000 Timorese, or 13 percent of all the population at the

time the deaths.

Following the war, the East Indies which belong to Dutch

dead

Indonesian troops, and 122 from

Fretilin

side. By

the

end of the year, 10,000 troops occupied

Dili

and

another

20,000 had been deployed throughout East Timor.Slide6

Beginning

Timor under the pretext of anti-colonialism. The overthrow of a popular and briefly

Fretilin

-led government sparked a violent quarter-century occupation in which between approximately 100–180,000 East Timorese soldiers and civilians are estimated to have been killed or starved.Slide7

Indonesian soldiers in towns, particularly

Dili

, were reported to have indiscriminately killed civilians, including the rape and killing of women and children.

The number of deaths during the occupation from famine and violence are between 90,800 and 202,600, out of a population of 823,386 (1999). Slide8

Food and medical supplies that were sent for the famine were

being

taken by the Indonesian troops. Slide9

The 2005 report of the UN's

Commission for Reception, Truth and Reconciliation in East Timor (CAVR

)

reports a figure of at least 102,800: 17,600 unlawful executions and 73,200

starvation

deaths (applying the study's margin of error).CAVR did not estimate

an

upper limit though it speculated that this could have been as high as 183,000

.Slide10
