There has been a low-key ceremony in French Polynesia to mark the territory's autonomy.
The event was attended by the President, Gaston Tong Sang, but not by the territory's other key pro-autonomy leader, Gaston Flosse.
Mr Tong Sang noted the absence of the French high commissioner, Adolphe Colrat, saying French Polynesia is part of France.
The pro-independence camp has been marking June the 29th as a day of mourning and the loss of independence as on this day in 1880 the Tahitian king signed a deal with France which annexed the kingdom
This year, there have been no parades and there will be no reception.
