There are many events considered important in the history of Indonesia's struggle for independence, leading to the Proclamation of Independence on August 17, 1945. One was the May 20, 1908 founding of Budi Utomo, an organization focused on Indonesian educational and cultural training, and second the Pledge of Indonesian Youth on October 28, 1928. It was a pledge by several youth organizations to forget all ethnic and regional differences and instead commit themselves to the idea of living as people of one country, belonging to one nation and possessing one national language. The principle of unity among the diverse ethnic groups and regions in Indonesia was thus begun. The organization started on Jl. Kramat Raya 102, the present Gedung Sumpah Pemuda.
