keep up to date with developments in TImor-Leste is to subscribe to
the news service of the East Timor and Indonesia Action Network

and Secrets from Timor-Leste
The east-timor list distributes news
and analysis from a wide range of sources, including
East Timorese groups, ETAN,
and other support groups. Reports and
translations from wire services and the Timor-Leste, Indonesian,
Portuguese, Australian, U.S. and other media
also regularly appear there, along with official documents and statements
from the U.N. and its agencies, national governments, and elsewhere. (The east-timor
list began as
a list server echo of a conference (newsgroup) called reg.easttimor and is
sometimes known by that name.) The number of postings
(e-mails) can vary, averaging 10-15 per day, depending on the pace of East
Timor-related events and coverage.

I would like to
take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent work you have
been doing these last years in keeping all people interested in
Timor-Leste's present and future duly informed. Your objectivity and
professionalism, providing an essential space for everybody to
express itself freely has been a great contribution to consolidate
Timor-Leste's emerging democracy. It is an example of how to give
voice to the civil society and others at relatively low costs, an
example that many other countries should follow.
I would also like to take the opportunity to thank you for
the wonderful service you provide to us all; the sharing of information is
crucial to all of us involved in/ with Timor-Leste and we would be lost without
Congratulations for this excellent source of
up-to-date information about Timor Leste.
Keep up the good work!
ETAN has been extremely valuable to me when I worked in ET.
Thanks again for providing this important service.
And I shouldn't pass up the chance to say a general thanks
for the great work you guys are doing at ETAN. It's four and a half years since
I left Timor and I still feel in touch with what is going on there thanks to
ETAN. So thank you!
