Green Left Weekly provides news, information, opinion and debate from an
environmental and left perspective.

Featured this week:

EAST TIMOR: WHAT ROLE FOR PEACEKEEPERS? Despite their overwhelming vote for
independence, the East Timorese people are being terrorised by armed
pro-Indonesian gangs. Peacekeepers may reduce the bloodshed, but the
Western powers that earlier backed the Indonesian occupation are not
reliable friends.
