Dear Reader,

(including all its subsidiary (and/or sister) pages on "coombs.anu.edu.au" server) has permanently ceased its publishing operations on Friday 21st January 2011.

All of the online resources reported here have been thoroughly checked at the time of their listing. However, it is possible that, with the with the passage of time, many of the originally reported materials might have been removed from the Internet, or changed their online address, or varied the scope and quality of their contents.

Fortunately, in several cases it is possible to access many of the older versions of the resources listed in the MONITOR. This can be easily done via the free services of the "The Internet Archive" http://web.archive.org/, a remarkable brainchild of Brewster Kahle, San Francisco, CA.

- with warm regards -

Center for Orang Asli Concerns (COAC)

COAC, Subang Jaya, Malaysia.

Self-description: "This site is committed to information and commentary on the Orang Asli, the indigenous minority peoples of Peninsular Malaysia. We are still fine-tuning the site and uploading base content. As such, we welcome suggestions to improve the portal. [...] The Center for Orang Asli Concerns was established in 1989 to advance the cause of the Orang Asli -- whether via the greater dissemination of Orang Asli news and views, assisting in court cases involving Orang Asli rights, or in developing arguments for lobbying and advocacy work. That is to say COAC functions primarily as a center to facilitate Orang Asli initiatives at self-development and in defense of their rights, and to support those who want to promote such initiatives."
