This is a copy of a resolution from the Conference of the Australian, Asian and New Zealand Union for Progressive Judaism, which occured last weekend in Canberra.
This conference of the Australian, Asian and New Zealand Union for Progressive Judaism meeting in November 1998 records and acknowledges the aspirations of the people of East Timor directed towards attaining the right to determine their own national and political identity and future. It recommends the government of Indonesia also acknowledge these matters and accord the people of that province the right to express their own choice in an unencumbered and predetermined way. The Conference also notes and deplores the continuing incarceration of Xanana Gusmao and urges the government to take steps that are undoubtedly within its power to effect his immediate release. The Conference urges the Australian Government to take such steps as are necessary to pursue the fulfilment of this recommendation and it regrets the failure to do so compromises our commitment to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in this its 50th year.
For more information on this resolution email or call me. I hope to have a simiar resolution from the Excutive Council of Australian Jewry from their Conference which starts this Sunday 6th Dec. Bernie AETA/USET Melbourne. Ph 0411 305 980
