John Miller

John Miller is the National Coordinator for East Timor and Indoensia Action
Network (ETAN). ETAN is a leading U.S NGO working on behalf of human rights
in East Timor and Indonesia. In recent years, reacting to the significant deterioration
in the human rights environment in West Papua ETAN has been especially active in
opposing the U.S. Government’s open-ended assistance to the Indonesian military,
the TNI, and to the militarized police, BRIMOB, which are the leading human rights
abusers in West Papua and the rest of the Indonesian archipelago. ETAN also opposes
any restoration of U.S. assistance to the Indonesian Special Forces (KOPASSUS).

John Miller and ETAN were the recipients of the 2009 John Rumbiak Human Rights Defender Award
