Monday, December 10, 2012
WELLINGTON (Radio New Zealand / Pacific Media Watch): Hundreds of thousands of Timorese and West Papuans have died in their respective struggles for independence from Indonesia.
Jeremy Rose talks to Anna Powles and Jose Sousa Santos – who have both worked as government advisors in post-independence Timor-Leste – about the challenges facing the country in the run up to the United Nations peace-keeping mission being withdrawn later this month.
And Richard Langston talks to Peter King – the author of West Papua and Indonesia since Suharto: Independence, Autonomy or Chaos? – about the on-going struggle of West Papuans for self-determination.
