Dear friends,

Panel at Festival Solidaridade with from left, Mana Lu, Papang Hidayat (Amnesty International Indonesia), Mica Barreto Soares, Pedro Pinto Leite (IPJET) and John M. Miller, August 28, 2019, Dili. Photo: ETAN  

I recently attended the 20th anniversary of the historic referendum in Timor-Leste. The theme of the celebration was the international solidarity that provided crucial support for Timor's struggle for liberation. I was honored to participate in official and civil society events, meeting with new people, and spending time with long-time colleagues and seasoned fellow activists.

In Timor-Leste so many people -- from the prime minister to international activists to young Timorese -- expressed how much they admired and appreciated ETAN's decades of solidarity for the people of Timor-Leste.

Donate to ETAN!

Many told me how vital our information sharing and networking are to their pursuit of justice, human rights, and genuine democracy in the region. They depend on us to keep them informed with news and analysis about Timor-Leste, Indonesia, and West Papua via our listservs, social media, and website. You may be one of them.

Please donate to help maintain and strengthen ETAN's action and crucial information.

Will you be one of 125 donors we need to contribute a total of $14,000 to help ETAN begin 2020, on a strong financial footing? Will you join others in investing in ETAN's pursuit of justice and the defense of democracy and human rights?

 Please say yes and donate today!

We made a good start on #GivingTuesday. Thank you to those who gave. Please join them by contributing to help us reach our goal.

ETAN’s email lists and social media reach are growing: Every day, ETAN compiles and distributes information about developments in Timor-Leste to subscribers to our east-timor listserv, up from 6,857 direct subscribers at the beginning of 2019 to 8,116 today. Our West Papua twitter feed has grown from 6,134 to 8,298 followers as global concern about Indonesia’s crackdown on freedom of expression escalates.

We need your help to intensify our pursuit of justice for the many historic and current victims of Indonesia's security forces crimes: from the mass killings in 1965 and 1966 that brought the dictator Suharto to power, through the illegal invasion and occupation of Timor-Leste to the West Papuans facing intensified repression.

Since his inauguration to a second term, Indonesia’s President Jokowi has said very little about human rights. Some of his ministers have declared that LGBTQ Indonesians are unfit to serve in government, and, disturbingly, accused rights-violator former General Prabowo is now Jokowi’s Minister of Defense.

ETAN's ability to meet these and other challenges very much depends on support from people like you. Please donate today.

Again, thank you for any support you can give.

A luta continua,

John M. Miller
Coordinator, East Timor and Indonesia Action Network (ETAN)
