The Santa Cruz Massacre

I went underground on November 2, 1991. Two days later, I sent someone to my family to tell them that I had escaped. On the same day that I escaped, at the designated hour, Indonesian intelligence went to Gabriela's house and asked her where I was. Gabriela didn't know that I had already gone into hiding. "He went out this morning, and he hasn't come back," she told them. "Maybe you can come back later." They went back to the house later in the evening and asked for me again.

When I went underground, I immediately went to a friend's house in Dili for a couple of hours and then moved to another house of someone who worked with the underground resistance. Starting on that day, I went from house to house and slept in a different place every night. Friends in the underground helped find places for me to stay. From the various safe houses, I established contact with Xanana and other underground movement leaders through estafetas. A number of letters were sent to me asking what we should do in response to the cancellation of the Portuguese delegation. Some groups at that time were saying that if there were no instructions from the leadership, they would take the initiative in organizing demonstrations. I thought that it would be politically damaging if none of the underground leaders sent any instructions about a possible action.
