tireless and return on the political scene, the 1996 Nobel Peace Prize, José Ramos-Horta, announces his candidacy for the Presidency of East Timor, his country he defended in exile during 25 years after the Indonesian invasion in 1975. It was not a first for José Ramos-Horta, who has already led Timor in the 2000s and started in a new presidential campaign at the age of 72 years, at the end of an extraordinary existence.

His life is a novel: that of exile and the struggle for independence. From his release of adolescence, he militates for the emancipation of the Timor which at the time is a Portuguese colony. And when Timore resistance unilaterally pronounces the independence of his country in 1975, he was appointed Minister of Foreign Affairs while he is only 25 years old.

Americans see Martin Luther King Jr as a hero now, but that wasn't the case during his lifetime

  Americans see Martin Luther King Jr as a hero now, but that wasn't the case during his lifetime The fact that King is now beloved and has a national holiday commemorating his birthday wasn't something that obviously was going to happen during his lifetime During the 1960s, King was a very divisive figure. The last Gallup poll to ask about his popularity during his lifetime, taken in 1966, found his unfavorable rating was 63%. This included 39% of Americans who gave him a -5 rating on a scale, with -5 being least favorable and +5 being most favorable. King's highly negative rating came when he had turned his attention from southern de jure segregation toward de facto segregation in northern cities.

He does not know it yet, but he will spend his life on the road, because a few days after his appointment, the Indonesia of the Dictator Suharto takes advantage of this change of political regime to invade the East Timor and suppress ultra-violently. Any dispute.

The voice of his people abroad

Ramos-Horta manages to escape, finds refuge in Australia and then in the United States and will become the voice of his people abroad. Former journalist, passionate about jazz and cinema, he becomes a familiar face of the UN platform in New York where he pleads tirelessly for the recognition of war crimes committed in Timor by the Indonesian army.

In 1996, he was crowned with the Nobel Peace Prize, and three years later, when Indonesia ended up at the international pressure, it returns to the country. Prime Minister in 2006, President until 2012 and apart from the race for a new mandate, aged 72, he goes back in the countryside for the last time.
