Titel:The circle of silence 
Auteur: Shirley Shackleton 
Samenvatting: Australian Shirley Shackleton was launched into an unexpected life as a human rights activist when her journalist husband Greg Shackleton was killed in East Timor in 1975. Her story is filled with a profound sense of purpose, enduring love for her husband, and a fierce determination to seek truth and justice not only regarding the events leading up to the murders of the journalists who came tot be known as the Balibo Five, but for the cause of democracy and freedom in Timor. After more than thirty years, in 2007 , Shirley’s efforts led to an inquest that revealed the Australian government’s cover-up and found that the Balibo Five were murdered to stop them exposing Indonesia’s invasion of East Timor. Today, she fights to have her husbands remains repatriated to Australia, and continues to raise awareness of East Timor. This is a great woman’s story, a proud mother’s story, and the story of a woman who became an accidental activist and proved herself courageous and determined.
