For various historical reasons, East Timor has never had maritime boundaries.
As a sovereign nation East Timor wants maritime boundaries and is legally entitled to have them. Unfortunately, the Australian Government has persistently refused to establish permanent maritime boundaries with East Timor in accordance with current international law. Specifically, we’re calling for the establishment of permanent maritime boundaries between East Timor and Australia in accordance with international law – that is, the boundary should be drawn along the median line halfway between the two countries’ coastlines.

The new Movie ‘Time to Draw the Line’ reveals the David and Goliath fight between East Timor and Australia over maritime boundary lines.
Directed by Amanda King & Fabio Cavadini
2016, 58 minutes
My dear friend Tim Read and Nandy Gurr are hosting a special one-time screening of the film Time to Draw the Line, Wednesday March 1 at Croydon Cinemas.
Unlike a traditional movie showing, our Demand Film screening requires that 60 tickets be reserved in the next few days in order for the screening to occur.
At this stage and we need another 25 sold in the next 3 days for the screening to go ahead.
Tim, what is the film about?
Tim, why are you involved?
What does the film hope to achieve?
Both Timor-Leste and Australia agreed that the meetings were productive, and reaffirmed their commitment to work in good faith towards an agreement on maritime boundaries by the end of the conciliation process in September 2017. The Commission intends to do its utmost to help the Parties reach an agreement that is both equitable and achievable
