“Independence can only be obtained and secured by a nation that has its spirit raging with determination: “independence or death”!
This country, the Republic of Indonesia, does not belong to any group, nor to any religion, nor to any ethnic group, nor to any group with customs and traditions, but the property of all of us from Sabang to Merauke!”

(Speech to the Investigation Agency for Preparation of Indonesian Independence, June 1, 1945)
