Featured this week: AUSTRALIA STEALS EAST TIMOR OIL -- AGAIN

Both the ALP and Coalition are evading calls by East Timorese leaders that
the Timor Gap Treaty, signed in 1989 between the Australian and Indonesian
governments, be renegotiated to enable East Timor to benefit from its own
oil and gas reserves.
