This blog is the work of John Waddingham, co-ordinator of the Clearing House for Archival Records on Timor (CHART) Project since 2000; qualified archivist since 2003; managed the Melbourne-based Timor Information Service 1975-1984.
Why this Blog?
Timor Archives: Newsletters is a sub-site of the CHART Project website.
‘Newsletters’ is devoted exclusively to providing access to electronic copies of newsletters published about East Timor’s struggle for independence, 1974-1999.
Most newsletters copied here are digitised from original print versions held in the archives of Timor Information Service and the ACFOA Human Rights Office in Melbourne, Australia.
Titles will be added as time and resources permit. Priority will be given to those newsletters which were considered important or influential in Timor solidarity circles at the time.
We will try to include as many as possible titles; some may be subject to restrictions from the original creators.
If you or your organisation produced a newsletter and would like your title to be included here, please contact us.
