"Despite the fact that an election has been called, the next round of Timor Sea oil talks between East Timor and Australia are set to go ahead on September 20th in Canberra. Although the talks will not involve the relevant ministers, given the Australian government's stated new willingness to negotiate, they will be quite critical.  They will also provide supporters of the Timor Sea Justice Campaign with an opportunity to send a strong message to the Government that the Timor Sea is definitely not off the election agenda."

Despite the fact that an election has been called, the next round of Timor Sea oil talks between East Timor and Australia are set to go ahead on September 20th in Canberra. Although the talks will not involve the relevant ministers, given the Australian government's stated new willingness to negotiate, they will be quite critical.


They will also provide supporters of the Timor Sea Justice Campaign with an opportunity to send a strong message to the Government that the Timor Sea is definitely not off the election agenda. Although there has been much speculation on the nature of a possible agreement, the deal has not yet been done and the work of the Timor Sea Justice Campaign is not finished!

Timor Sea Justice Activists from Melbourne, Sydney and Darwin will travel to Canberra for a rally on Monday, 20 September in front of Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, to draw public attention to our demands that: 

* the Australian Government negotiate in good faith to set fair maritime boundaries with East Timor, consistent with the principles of International law, and

* stop unilaterally developing and profiting from East Timor's resources

We would like to invite as many people as possible in Canberra to become involved in the action as it is your city and your support is crucial.  We would therefore ask you to come along and participate yourselves and to tell as many people as you can about it.  Also, if you are able to offer a billet to someone from interstate for the nights of the 19th and 20th, we would be delighted to hear from you.

The Details of the rally are as follows:

Monday 20 September
12.00 noon till 2.00 p.m.

Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade
R.G. Casey Building, John McEwen Crescent, Barton

Speakers, Street Theatre and more!
