East Timor Independence Committee
Peacekeeping force welcomed - actions continue for immediate intervention and humanitarian relief.
The East Timor Independence Committee welcomes the decision of President Habibie to invite an international peacekeeping
force into East Timor.
"Finally there is some hope that the apocalyptic devastation and death in East Timor will come to an end. It is
absolutely essential that the force is dispatched within hours. Reports of military and militia massacres have escalated
over the weekend and there are very grave fears that those currently sheltering in the mountains without shelter or food
can survive much longer."
