David Scott, executive director of the Brotherhood of St Laurence 1969-1980, went to East Timor not long before the Indonesian invasion of 1975 and was evacuated with the last flight out of the country. He tells the story of East Timor s prolonged struggle to gain independence, drawing on his own close knowledge of key figures (notably Jose Ramos-Horta) in those difficult years.
