Canadian Solidarity Movement Reorganizes
Our sister organizations north of the border have restructured themselves. ETAN/US continues to work closely with all Canadian East Timor support and solidarity groups. There are currently more than a dozen such local groups in Canada, and they are part of either (or both) of two national networks: The East Timor Alert Network (ETAN/Canada) (same initials, different organization from the U.S.-based East Timor Action Network) and the newly-formed Canadian Action for Indonesia and East Timor (CAFIET). Although CAFIET is a new name, it contains many of the people and local groups who have worked on East Timor in Canada for many years, including Elaine BriŤre and Maggie Helwig, and has its national office in the former ETAN/Canada national office in Toronto.
