Tourism in Timor

First performed just prior to being thrown out of the Garuda Airlines Booking Office in Brisbane in 1999.

Visit Militia City,
admire their home-made guns,
count the dead
from your hotel bed;
daughters, mothers, sons.
Tour the burnt out suburbs,
fondle a hand grenade,
bury a battered body –
democracy, militia-made.
You can bathe in blood and gore.
Shoot the fleeing by the score.
See freedom delayed
and justice betrayed.
There is a whole lot more.
We’ll show you Kopassus compassion.
You can dig an unmarked grave.
Teach you how to kill the wounded.
It’s cheap you’ll save
and save.
