Death of a Nation: The Timor Conspiracy

Synopsis
Undercover reporting by David Munro and John Pilger revealing evidence of an unreported massacre in East Timor by Indonesian troops. Tells how survivors of an initial massacre at the Santa Cruz cemetery there in 1991 were mercilessly tracked down and killed, some in their hospital beds, and suggest hidden support by western governments for Indonesia’s ruthless regime. Shows evidence of the debastating effect of British-made Hawk ground-attack aircraft in suppressing the Timorese.
