A testimony from late in East Timor's long struggle for political independence. Written by Constâncio Pinto and Matthew Jardine, with a foreword by Allan Nairn. South End Press, 1997.
"The struggle of the Timorese is one of the most inspiring of the modern era, vividly depicted here through participant eyes, with an authoritative review of the background of the [then] current situation. Their resistance is a tribute to what the human spirit can achieve, even in the face of awesome resources of violence and unimaginable horror." - Noam Chomsky
"This is an unforgettable book. Its personal testament is a powerful reflection of the resistance, courage, and suffering of the people in East Timor. Anyone wanting to know how imperial power works, and how ordinary people stand up to it, must read Constâncio Pinto's remarkable story." - John Pilger
