Background:
Tetum below
The Government of Timor-Leste is currently free of debt. Despite
current substantial income from petroleum resources, the government has
announced plans to begin borrowing.
In September, more than 137 organizations based in 32 countries endorsed
a statement that urged "the government of Timor-Leste to keep the
nation debt-free and refrain from borrowing money from international
lenders.... to protect its future generations." The groups argue
that "Rather than repeat the mistakes of other developing countries
that have struggled with debt during recent decades, Timor-Leste should
learn from their experiences, which often inflicted great hardships on
their people."

http://etan.org/news/2011/08debt.htm
Income from oil and gas provides 95% of state revenue, making Timor-Leste
the most petroleum-export dependent country in the world. Timor-Leste has
not yet borrowed funds from other countries or international financial
institutions, but the government has passed laws to enable borrowing. In
the 2012 budget, the government has proposed borrowing.
This petition is a joint project of the the Movimento Kontra Deve, a
coalition of civil society organizations in Timor-Leste opposed to their
country taking out loans, and the East Timor and Indonesia Action Network
(www.etan.org), a
20-year old U.S.-based group working in solidarity with the people of
Timor-Leste.

Petition Text
(Textu Petisaun below)
We, the undersigned, urge the government of Timor-Leste to keep the
nation debt-free and refrain from borrowing from international lenders.

We come from many countries, including those that have experienced
onerous conditions that placed a priority on repaying loans over the
needs of our people. Others of us come from nations that have imposed
those conditions.
We have seen how too many developing countries have struggled with debt.
We urge Timor-Leste to learn from their experiences.
Despite Timor-Leste's current petroleum wealth, when Timor-Leste's oil
and gas run out in less than 15 years and loans still must be repaid,
Timor-Leste's children and grandchildren will suffer the
consequences.
