The recent news that Australia has agreed to negotiate maritime boundaries with Timor-Leste is welcome, but there are many loose ends and unknowns. Given the history, we cannot afford to be complacent.
FORMAL PETITION to HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
Here is the Formal Petition available to be signed on paper. Get local groups to sign, for example, churches, service clubs, schools. This will be presented to Parliament in August.
Members of the NSW Forum are keen to assist with visits to MPs if necessary, and are happy to accompany people to such meetings. Send us a message through the form on the resources page.

Till we see justice in the Timor Sea.
