Today is exactly 90 years ago, a historic declaration of the reign of young people in the Pemuda Building, Batavia (Jakarta). The Declaration became part of the nation's history, the declaration is known as the Youth Pledge. The Youth Pledge was declared to affirm the lofty ideals of the youth at that time to love Tanah Air Indonesia.
The Youth Oath Day celebration this year was made worse, considering that it coincided with the semifinal match between the Indonesia Under-19 National Team vs Japan in the AFC U-19 2018 Cup.
