This Australian military intervention dragged Portuguese Timor into the Pacific War but it also slowed the Japanese expansion. When the Japanese did occupy Timor, in February 1942, a 400-strong Dutch-Australian force and large numbers of Timorese volunteers engaged them in a one-year guerilla campaign (Battle of Timor (1942–43)). After the allied evacuation in February 1943 the East Timorese continued fighting the Japanese, with comparatively little collaboration (collaborationism) with the enemy taking place. This assistance cost the civilian population dearly: Japanese forces burned many villages and seized food supplies. The Japanese occupation resulted in the deaths of 40,000–70,000 Timorese. * The ''Associação Social Democrática Timorense'' (Timorese Social Democratic Association ASDT) supported a rapid movement to independence. It later changed its name to ''Frente Revolucionária de Timor-Leste Independente'' (Revolutionary Front of Independent East Timor or Fretilin). Fretilin was criticised by many in Australia and Indonesia as being Marxist, its name sounding reminiscent of FRELIMO in Mozambique but it was more influenced by African nationalists like Amílcar Cabral in Portuguese Guinea (now Guinea-Bissau) and Cape Verde. Other smaller parties included ''Klibur Oan Timur Asuwain'' or KOTA whose name translated from the Tetum language as 'Sons of the Mountain Warriors', which sought to create a form of monarchy involving the local ''liurai'', and the ''Partido Trabalhista'' or Labour Party, but neither had any significant support. They would, however, collaborate with Indonesia. The ''Associação Democrática para a Integração de Timor-Leste na Austrália'' (ADITLA), advocated integration with Australia, but folded after the Australian government emphatically ruled out the idea. Parties compete, foreign powers take interest Developments in Portuguese Timor during 1974 and 1975 were watched closely by Indonesia and Australia. Suharto's "New Order" (New Order (Indonesia)), which had effectively eliminated Indonesia's Communist Party PKI (Communist Party of Indonesia) in 1965, was alarmed by what it saw as the increasingly left-leaning Fretilin, and by the prospect of a small independent leftist state in the midst of the archipelago inspriring separatism in parts of the sourrounding archipelago. Indonesia sought to portray the conflict as a civil war, which had plunged Portuguese Timor into chaos, but after only a month, aid and relief agencies from Australia and elsewhere visited the territory, and reported that the situation was stable. Nevertheless, many UDT supporters had fled across the border into Indonesian Timor, where they were coerced into supporting integration with Indonesia. In October 1975, in the border town of Balibo, two Australian television crews (the "Balibo Five") reporting on the conflict were killed by Indonesian forces, after they witnessed Indonesian incursions into Portuguese Timor. East Timor solidarity movement An international ''East Timor solidarity movement'' arose in response to the 1975 invasion (Indonesian invasion of East Timor) of East Timor by Indonesia and the occupation that followed. The movement was supported by churches, human rights groups, and peace campaigners, but developed its own organizations and infrastructure in many countries. Many demonstrations and vigils backed legislative actions to cut off military supplies to Indonesia. The movement was most extensive in neighboring Australia, in Portugal, and the former Portuguese colonies in Africa, but had significant force in the United States, Canada and Europe. right thumb Demonstration against Indonesian occupation of East Timor, September 10, 1999.
