Dear Friend of ETAN,
Your contribution supports ETAN's ongoing support for the campaign of government and people of Timor-Leste to establish maritime boundaries with its neighbors. Legally-recognized boundaries would end Australia's theft of Timor's resources and bring to a close the independence struggle that began more than 40 years ago. In March, we conducted a successful online campaign calling on Australia to negotiate maritime boundaries now. This was in association with demonstrations in Dili, throughout Australia and elsewhere.
Your gift will help maintain and strengthen ETAN's crucial information sharing via email and on social media. So many people, perhaps including you, depend us to keep them informed about important news about Timor-Leste, Indonesia and West Papua.
With your help, we can intensify our pursuit of justice for the many victims of Indonesia's security forces crimes: from the coup in 1965 that brought the dictator Suharto to power, through the illegal invasion and occupation of Timor-Leste to the West Papuans subject to ongoing human rights violations. And we need your help in keeping up the pressure on the U.S. government to acknowledge its role in arming and training the perpetrators of these crimes.
We continue to highlight the career and human rights record now coordinating minister and former general Wiranto. We are pressing Indonesia's President Joko 'Jokowi' Widodo to rescind his appointment. Please sign our petition here -- if you haven't yet done so.
We can only maintain these and our other activities with the generous support of people like yourself.
John M. Miller
National Coordinator, ETAN
