Explanation of the Rengasdengklok Event

On August 14, 1945, the allies dropped atomic bombs on two cities in Japan, namely Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which caused Japan to surrender unconditionally in the hands of the allies. The news of the surrender of the Japanese in the hands of the allies reached the ears of Indonesian youths who worked in Japanese offices. Sutan Syahrir heard about it and immediately met Ir. Soekarno and Moh. Hatta to deliver the news.

The young group immediately negotiated with the old group to immediately proclaim Indonesian independence. However, this was done by Ir. Soekarno who was of the opinion that the proclamation of Indonesian independence had to be considered carefully without haste and had to negotiate at the PPKI meeting.

Young people continue to negotiate with Ir. Soekarno proclaimed Indonesian independence so that on August 16, 1945, youths kidnapped Soekarno and Hatta at 04.00 WIB in the morning to Rengasdengklok. This trip was escorted with the help of PETA soldiers. Arriving at Rengasdengklok, Soekarno-Hatta was exiled to the house of a farmer of Tinghoa descent named Jiauw Ki Song. While in exile, Soekarno-Hatta negotiated with youth groups. The negotiations aimed to urge Ir Soekarno to immediately formulate and proclaim Indonesian independence so that Indonesia would no longer fall into the hands of the allies due to Japan's defeat. However, the negotiations were rejected by the old group who thought that the Indonesian proclamation had to go through the PPKI.

Meanwhile, Achmad Soebardjo negotiated with youth leaders in Jakarta to agree that Indonesia's independence would soon be proclaimed in Jakarta. After the negotiations, Achmad Soebardjo was assisted by Jusuf Kunto to re-elect Soekarno-Hatta to be brought back to Jakarta.

In the evening, again held discussions on implementation proclamation Indonesian independence which was held at the residence of Admiral Maeda in order to formulate the text of the proclamation of Indonesian independence. Finally on August 17 at the residence of Ir. Soekarno namely Jalan Pegangsaan Timur No. 56 Jakarta, Soekarno-Hatta read the text of the proclamation of Indonesian independence in front of the Indonesian people.
