East Timor - Independence Referendum 1999In 1999 I travelled throughout East Timor covering the lead up to the Referendum of Independence for the small pacific island held under Indonesian occupation for nearly 25 years.Fear and intimidation was a daily occurrence for the Timorese people and the pressure from pro-Indonesian militia and government forces made for a bloodied road to an eventual pathway to freedom that would see the small nation of East Timor stand on its own.
