East Timor Newsgroups & Lists
(updated October 2012)
Postal Mailing Lists
ETAN maintains two lists (alerts and east-timor) on Timor-Leste (East Timor). Both are maintained
manually. See below, for additional information about either list or contact John M. Miller.
ETAN also maintains a
postal mailing list (for the newsletter and other mailings), a fax list for alerts, and a
phone list. Even if you only wish to receive electronic material, we would appreciate
having your postal mailing address, phone and fax numbers.
ETAN Alert List
ETAN has an electronic mailing list for action alerts. These
alerts deal with lobbying the US government, severe human rights violations and the like.

distributes news and other items from a wide range of
sources, including East Timorese groups, ETAN, TAPOL, and other support
groups. Reports and translations from wire services and the East Timorese,
Indonesian, Portuguese, Australian, British, and U.S. press also appear
regularly, as well as official documents and statements from
the U.N., national governments, and other sources. (East-timor began as a
list server echo of a conference (newsgroup) called reg.easttimor and is
sometimes known by that name.) Postings average 10-15 per day, although
the frequency varies with the pace of East Timor-related events
and coverage. Click here to subscribe.
