History

The East Timor Alert Network campaigned for a shift in Canadian foreign policy to support human rights and self-determination for East Timor. It was a volunteer organization founded in 1986 in British Columbia and later incorporated as a non-profit group. Its national office moved to Toronto in the early 1990s, with one part-time staff person hired in 1996. In 1997, ETAN groups split to form two groups. After a short dispute over who would keep the name, the national office in Toronto, board of directors and some local groups formed Canadian Action for Indonesia and East Timor (CAFIET). The organization wound down operations soon after the end of the Indonesian occupation of East Timor in 1999.
