    Ten months after the renewed violence and lawlessness in East Timor, nobody is holding their breath for a simple resolution. It seems the dirty politicking will continue until a new order order has been established to properly replace the vacuum left when the state imploded in 1999. The first of two runner up essays in Eureka Street's Margaret Dooley Young Writers Award 2006.

    • 16 October 2006
