The Next National Heroes' Day is Celebrated in East Timor
A national holiday in East Timor, National Heroes' Day is celebrated to honour Nicolau Lobato, first President of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste who lead a violent independence struggle against Indonesia until his death on 31st of December 1978 in the valley of Mindelo.
East Timor, also known as Timor-Leste, is a small island nation located in Southeast Asia. It was colonized by the Portuguese in the 16th century and remained a Portuguese territory until 1975, when it declared independence. However, independence was short-lived, as Indonesia invaded and occupied East Timor in the same year.
The occupation of East Timor by Indonesia lasted for over two decades, during which time many East Timorese people fought for their country's independence.
