This organisation has a link with CNRT, since the highest ranking woman in FRETILIN's hierarchy, Ana Pessoa Pinto, who is also an OPMT cadre, has been invited to sit on CNRT's Political National Council (CPN), headed by Xanana.
When CNRT was officially established in Dili and opened its office, OPMT leaders decided to drop the `P' in their abbreviation to become OMT.
The first one is the Popular Organisation of Timorese Women, or OPMT (Organicao Popular da Mulher de Timor), FRETILIN's women's wing, which has had its members among the guerilla fighters as well as in the clandestine front in the cities and towns of Timor Loro Sa'e (Aditjondro, 1999b).
AIRL: Afterwards, I attended two years of provisional committee meetings of what would later be known as the OPMT, the Organizacion Puertorriquena de la Mujer Trabajadora (Puerto Rican Organization of Women Workers).
What is now OPMT (Organizacion Puertorriquena de la Mujer Trabajadora/Puerto Rican Organization of Women Workers), for example.
There was Taller Salud (Health Workshop), Organizacion Puertorriquena de la Mujer Trabajadora (OPMT, Puerto Rican Organization of Women Workers), Feministas en Marcha (Feminists in Motion), and Encuentro de Mujeres (Women's Forum).
