Abstract

On November 12, 1991, thousands of people joined a funeral procession in Dili, the capital of East Timor. The procession was in honor of Sebastiao Gomes, an independence supporter who had died two weeks earlier at the hands of Indonesian soldiers. The procession was a public protest against Indonesian rule, with marchers chanting slogans. Indonesian troops were on hand, walking ro the sides of the mourners.
