The Security Coordinator of CNRT/CN David Dias Ximenes made an appeal to the younger generation, in particular to the youth associated with Fitun (Frete Iha Timor Unidos Nafatin), not to forget the struggle of the past and those that died for it.
ďDo not forget those who fought for your freedom and died as a result of it. They are a generation of people who fought for us so that we could enjoy freedom now,Ē said David at Fitunís mini conference in Culuhun on Saturday.
ďDonít think that the freedom we are enjoying now is because of the sacrifices of the present generation. Thatís not true. We were actually advancing the struggle from the previous generation. We must learn to respect the past fighters and also those old fighters,Ē he added.
ďDonít forget the struggles of fighters like Abel Laresinha, Nicolao Lobato, Rogerio Lobato and Jose Ramos Horta,Ē stressed David Ximenes.
