CNRM North America tour 1993: Abe Barreto speech
In 1993, the Timorese resistance umbrella CNRM (National Council of Maubere Resistance) sponsored a tour of Canada and the United States by a group of young Timorese. The tour showed that a new generation of resistance, educated under Indonesian rule, was now fighting for their homeland in the diplomatic arena.
Below is the speech given by Abe Barreto Soares, CNRM representative to Canada.
