Fundasaun Mahein Acknowledges Malae Heroes

On the 15th anniversary of Timor-Leste’s referendum, the government hosted the Com De Cordasaun Medal awards. In these awards 26 foreign activists were awarded medals for their contribution in Timor-Leste’s struggle for independence. Of these recipients 24 were from Australia and 2 from Indonesia itself.

Fundasaun Mahein, as one of the participants of the ceremony, would like to extend our warmest congratulations the recipients of these awards and our deepest thanks for the sacrifices these people made to ensuring East Timor’s freedom.

The largely thankless task that these recipients, and many others like them, of protesting the Indonesian occupation of Timor-Leste is often overlooked in the historical record and was conducted at great personal cost to themselves. Often combating intimidation, financial duress and apathy these activists spent a great deal of their own time over the 24 years occupation advocating for Timorese freedom. This is even more so for the two Indonesian recipients of this award, fighting their own government for the sake of freedom of Timor-Leste. We here at Fundasaun Mahein can not and will not forget the contributions that these foreigners have made to Timor-Leste’s independence struggle and would like offer our thanks for their actions.

As a symbol, these Foreign Activists brave actions have demonstrated the power of people working together and for also showing us that Timor-Leste does not walk alone. We hope that this continues into the future and that the foreign community continues to work with us to reform the security sector and to ensure that their sacrifices were not made in vain.
