Desember 2001 BLH: Tinjauan Tentang Bantuan Bilateral untuk Timor Lorosa’e
Artikel ditambahkan tanggal 1 Januari 2002
"Sampai dua tahun yang lalu, masyarakat internasional umumnya mengabaikan Timor Lorosa’e. Pendudukan militer Indonesia yang ilegal menurut hukum internasional telah menghalangi banyak negara untuk mengirimkan bantuan ekonomi kepada Timor Lorosa’e. Tetapi, dengan berakhirnya pendudukan itu, banyak negara mendanai proyek-proyek di sini. Bantuan ekonomi ini tidak bisa menggantikan pengabaian itu, dan jumlah uang yang dikirim para donor tidaklah cukup untuk mengganti kerugian akibat penindasan Indonesia selama hampir 24 tahun – penindasan yang juga didanai dan didukung oleh banyak negara donor yang sama – tetapi penting untuk membuat Timor Lorosa’e kembali berdiri di atas kakinya sendiri." La'o Hamutuk: Institut Pemantau dan Analisis Rekonstruksi Timor Timur

Dec 8 ETNGOs: Commemoration Day of the Commencement of the Pacific War  Letter added Jan 24
"The Pacific War which was begun by the Imperial Nation of Japan on 8 December sixty years ago, cost around 40,000 innocent lives in East Timor during the time period of three and half years of the military occupation of the Emperor of Japan. ... History is very important in order to build a better future. For that reason, mistakes of the past have to be straighten out before steps can be made forward. If not, human history has already proven similar mistakes will be repeated. ... We are aware that Japan is the largest donor nation for the East Timor Trust Fund and has given major attention to the reconstruction of East Timor. And we too would like to express our gratitude for this assistance. However, this assistance may not simply cover up the wounds that have been inflicted by the Japanese military on this land of East Timor. If there is no justice, there can be no betterment of life." Representatives of 20 East Timorese Non-Government Organisations (NGOs)
