Every 7 December is Memorial Day in Timor Leste, dedicated to the memory of all who fought and died in the long, bloody struggle for freedom and independence for their homeland.

This is a solemn day on which people remember the war against the Japanese in World War II and the decades-long struggle against domination by Indonesia following World War II.
It is a time to honour the biggest heroes of this very small and new nation.
