Public Meeting: Oil Gas & Greed in the Timor Sea

7:30pm, Thursday, 4 August, 2005.
Museum theatrette,
19 Conacher St, Bullocky Point, Fannie Bay, NT.


A public meeting on the latest developments on the negotiations between Australia and East Timor regarding the oil and gas resources of the Timor Sea. Is the latest offer a "fair deal''? What of East Timor's sovereign rights?

Learn more about the theft of East Timor’s natural resources and what you can do to make sure East Timor gets a fair go in the Timor Sea.

The Australian Government is forcing East Timor into another temporary resource sharing agreement. The deal would see Australia take 50% of the Greater Sunrise gas field worth an estimated $40 billion in government royalties. The Australian Government is refusing to abide by International Law and establish permanent maritime boundaries with East Timor. Instead, it’s bullying the poorest nation in Asia out of billions of dollars that it’s legally entitled to.

Featuring:
- Jon Lamb, Timor Sea Justice Campaign, Darwin
- Tommy Clarke, Coordinator, Timor Sea Justice Campaign, Melbourne
- a satellite address from Alexander Downer (aka comedian John Clarke)
- the latest TV ad that was banned from going International
