ETIC Auckland took responsibility for the production and mailing of most of the issues of the national newsletter, Nettalk, around 1994, along with its occasional supplements, known as Action Alerts. Work was done by unpaid volunteers and solidarity activities were financed through donations and fundraising. Upon the group's dissolution in 2000, the ETIC recommended its members become involved with the Timor Lorosae Support Group and the Indonesian Human Rights Committee to ensure Timor's smooth transition to independence. The ETIC's remaining assets were distributed amongst various organizations supporting Timorese independence.
