In the Netherlands Charles Lourens is making out a case for the rehabilitation of the former Indonesian president SOEKARNO. Charles Lourens is convinced that Soekarno has been a hero to his people as well as a freedom fighter. In the Netherlands streets and squares are often being named after heroes and freedom fighters.

·         Till today in Holland NEVER a street or square has been named yet after Soekarno. This must change.



In this respect Charles has initiated a project together with his friend Pieter de Hart (who is living in Flores, Indonesia) in order to renovate Soekarno’s house in Flores turning it into a museum.  In the meantime the Flores authorities approved of the plan, the blueprints for renovating are ready. Charles Lourens has developed an action in order to raise funds for the renovation. In a recent conversation with our prime minister, mr. Jan Peter Balkenende, Charles Lourens informed the prime minister of his plans.
