Administrative history

ETAN-US was formed in 1991 after the Santa Cruz massacre, and became the major US solidarity coalition. It published Network News, later renamed as Estafeta (Tetun for "messenger" or "courier"). Based in the New York area, it had chapters throughout the United States and for a time, a lobbying office in Washington. Key figures include Charles Scheiner, Lynn Frederickson, and John Miller.
