Now this is interesting. Again, it seems to be the CNRT connection that is
decisive in the pro-interventionist position. I'm half expecting to see
some anti-interventionist positions coming out of other USec sections, or
out of the USec itself.
There's something a little odd though:

As far as I'm aware there are no 'Australian and Indonesian sections'.
There's a handful of FI supporters in Australia, who can only very rarely
get their act together, and are not a functioning party. In practice, the
Portuguese comrades probably mean the DSP and PRD, despite neither group
being FI members.
