Canadians Concerned about Ethnic Violence in Indonesia

  • Collectivité
  • 1998-c. 2012

CCEVI was formed in the wake of violence against Chinese-Indonesians in May 1998. The 1998 protests that toppled Suharto also included a welling-up of anti-Chinese violence. This inspired investigations and advocacy by Indonesian human rights groups, as well as the mobilization of the Chinese-Indonesian community in several cities in Canada. Toronto community members formed a group called “Canadians Concerned about Ethnic Violence in Indonesia” (CCEVI), then broadened their critique beyond the treatment of Chinese-Indonesians to include all aspects of ethnic discrimination and human rights. CCEVI was able to influence immigration decisions and make human rights more of a concern.

East Timor Independence Committee (Auckland, NZ)

  • Collectivité
  • [ca. 1981]-2000

The East Timor Independence Committee can be traced back to roughly 1981, when Helen Yensen revitalized Greenpeace and East Timor activist Elaine Shaw's solidarity and networking efforts. Membership grew steadily throughout the 1980s. The Santa Cruz massacre prompted further outrage surrounding the occupation of East Timor and brought further support for the group's efforts. 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.

Free East Timor Coalition

  • Collectivité
  • 1997-[2000?]

The Free East Timor Coalition was founded September 14, 1997 in Whaingaroa (Raglan), New Zealand. It served as a national coalition for East Timor solidarity groups around Aotearoa (New Zealand). Its founding members hailed from six solidarity groups based in the following areas: Whangārei, Tāmaki Makaurau (Auckland), Kirikiriroa (Hamilton), Te Whanganui-a-Tara (Wellington), Ōtautahi (Christchurch), and Ōtepoti (Dunedin). It was at the Coalition's founding meeting on September 14, 1997 that members decided to jointly publish the Nettalk newsletter on a quarterly basis. Activists also pooled their resources and experience to streamline and maximize the impact of solidarity efforts. The Coalition, in turn, financed the printing and distribution of newsletters, national and international communication costs, some speaking tour costs, meetings with Government and administrative costs.

Clamor por Timor

  • Collectivité
  • 1993-1999

Clamor por Timor was a solidarity group formed in Brazil in 1992, which remained active until 2002.

It was founded by a civil society group called "Grupo Solidário São Domingos" (GSSD), which arose in 1982 as a group to translate books related to religion and ended up being an important voice on the combat of inequality in Brazil and worldwide. The group main leaders were a Maltese priest called Frei João Xerri and a nun called Lilia do Amaral Azevedo.

Their interest in East Timor emerged after the suggestion of a journalist called Jan Rocha, and it was based on the same course of action of another initiative made by the GSSD called "Clamor", which aimed to help political prisoners of the dictatorships in Latin America. In 1993, after being warned by Jan Rocha of a Timorese young man trying to give more visibility to the excesses perpetrated by Indonesia on their nation's territory, GSSD started the movement Clamor Por Timor.

After this, the GSSD started to disseminate the Timorese cause throughout Brazil using various means such as: newspaper articles; benefit concerts; expositions; public acts; campaigns using mass media actors; and public pressure on the Brazilian government, which was adopting a soft attitude on the matter. They also promoted a book about the matter called "Timor Leste - Este País Quer Ser Livre" (East Timor - This Country wants to be free), with the presence of Timor's ambassador and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, José Ramos-Horta.
