Solidaritas untuk Timor-Timur 1975-1999

Foto-foto yang terpampang dalam tulisan ini (see below) merupakan bentuk solidaritas yang menggambarkan orang-orang dan tindakan-tindakan kolektif solidaritas seluruh dunia dengan perjuangan Timor-Leste untuk penentuan nasib sendiri selama 1974-1999. Kadang-kadang tindakan ini spontan, dan kadang-kadang direncanakan dengan baik. Sebagian dilakukan oleh perseorangan, sementara sebagian lainnya melibatkan kelompok-kelompok besar. Orang-orang yang terlibat dalam segala jenis tindakan – petisi, pernyataan media, kampanye, lobby, demonstrasi – tergerak untuk mendukung perjuangan rakyat Timor-Leste. Tindakan-tindakan solidaritas membuat perjuangan ini tetap menjadi berita dan bertahan dalam agenda internasional. Pada akhirnya tindakan-tindakan ini memiliki satu tujuan yang sama: mencapai kebebasan dan penentuan nasib sendiri untuk Timor-Leste.
