Nov 28 is celebrated by some groups as Independence Day.

The ASDT political supporters were in traditional garb playing musical instruments along the beach.

I am told that there are several different independence days depending on what political party you are affiliated with.

These folks were from the Same sub-district.

Some of them had been fighters in the resistance against Indonesia.

There were some palm wine vendors along the beach so it looked like it was going to turn into a big party by nightfall.
