i believe you are confusing 'anarchists' with 'pro-independence 

as i see it, anarchists desire the destruction of government as an 
institution, including with it the mindset of authority and power. 

to overthrow the current government (indonesian rule) to replace it with 
another government (east timorese rule) is not anarchism.

apologies for nit-picking.
