When language is used to murder

Our beautiful but murderous English is swallowing the world in great gulps, threatening to install the uniformity of "might is right". When I talk about Timor-Leste I sometimes meet people who find it hard to comprehend that we at Mary MacKillop East Timor are helping children to learn in their own languages, particularly the main one, Tetum. People say, "But wouldn't you be teaching English?" It is the classic colonisers' pitch so well known to our indigenous friends here: "They are OK insofar as they resemble us" - Sr Susan Connelly
