|Congressional Action Alert
Timor's August vote is approaching quickly; voter registration has already begun. Congress
has increased the pressure on Indonesia to permit a free and fair vote, but more must
happen before the East Timorese can cast their ballots freely. We need your help to keep
up the pressure.
What you can do
Call the Congressional Switchboard: 202-224-3121. Ask for your
Representative's office and then ask for the foreign policy aide.
- H.R. 1063 closes loopholes and bans all remaining U.S. military training to Indonesia.
This a priority!
- Rep. Bill Luther (D-MN) has introduced a resolution (H.Res. 251) condemning recent
paramilitary attacks on the UN mission.
- Rep. Tony Hall (D-OH) is seeking co-signers on a letter to President Clinton calling for
increased U.S. pressure on Jakarta. Offices should contact Rep. Tony Hall's office to sign
- Congressional delegations are being organized in both House and Senate. Interested
offices should call Patrick Kennedy's (D-RI) office in the House and ETAN's Washington
office for more information for the Senate.
