The "Embassy of East Timor" and the solidarity camp set up around it is into day three in downtown Ottawa. So far, the camp has been a *huge* success.
We have had to add another 5 metres to our petition quickly being filled up with messages to our foreign affairs minister, asking him to publicly support East Timor's right to self-determination.
Last night we showed outdoor movies on East Timor, to a huge audience of passers-by and supporters. This was projected on to a giant screen, with everyone watching from the steps of the human rights monument.
Having the Jazz Festival - which attracts tens of thousands - a block away, has also meant a constant flow of new people coming into the embassy.
