About Memorial Day

Memorial Day in East Timor is seen on December 7. It is an open occasion devoted to the casualties of the Indonesian control of East Timor. The occupation started in December 1999 and went on for over two decades. It was infamous for executions, slaughters, torment, and starvation. The Portuguese found the island of Timor in the mid 1510s and started colonization in the mid-sixteenth century. The 1974 Carnation Revolution prompted the decolonization procedure and Portugal successfully relinquished the settlement of East Timor. Following a common war between supporters of the Timorese Democratic Union UDT and the Revolutionary Front for an Independent East Timor Fretilin, Fretilin singularly pronounced the autonomy of East Timor on November 28, 1975.

After nine days, on December 7, Indonesian military powers attacked East Timor and possessed it. The United Nations censured the activities of Indonesia in East Timor, yet a few nations upheld the Indonesian government. By 1979, Indonesia had smothered the outfitted opposition in East Timor. The Indonesian control of East Timor went on for a long time. The quantity of passings from brutality and starvation amid the occupation is evaluated to be in the vicinity of 90,000 and 200,000. Also, the Indonesian military crushed a large portion of the nation's framework just before the withdrawal.
