Reader comment on: What They Do Not Tell You about Indonesia
Submitted by David, Mar 19, 2017 19:52
The writer of this article failed to mention the people of East Timor under the occupation of Indonesia and Suharto. While he describes how nice and tolereant life was like under Suharto, this couldn't be said about the people of East Timor which was under a brutal occupation by Indonesia. Hundreds of thousand of people in East Timor were murdered by Suharto's regime from the time of the invasion in 1975 until they eventually gained the the right to vote for independence in a referendum in 1999.
