The Central Jakarta administration will move the controversial "Little Barry" statue from its current location at Taman Menteng in Central Jakarta to state elementary school SDN 01 Menteng next week, an official says.
"We are currently discussing with officials from the school and its alumni association," city spokesman Cucu Ahmad Kurnia told reporters Friday. "We hope the move will happen next week."
US President Barack Obama attended the elementary school for almost two years when he spent part of his childhood in Jakarta.
Erected by the Jakarta-based Friends of Obama Foundation in December last year, the statue, which resembles Obama as a boy, recently sparked wide public criticism for insulting the nation's pride.
Just a few days after the Central Jakarta municipality unveiled the statue at Menteng Park, experts and a group of Facebook users demanded it be dismantled.
On Wednesday, the Central Jakarta District Court held a hearing to try a class action lawsuit by five plaintiffs representing 50,000 members of the "Take down the Barack Obama statue from Menteng Park" group on Facebook.
The five plaintiffs - Heru Nugroho, Protus Tanuhandaru, Daniel Rudi Haryanto, Andes Soesman and FX Agung Bimo Sutedjo - filed the suit against Jakarta governor, Central Jakarta mayor and the Jakarta Parks and Cemeteries Agency, saying the statue didn't deserve a place at the park and should be immediately removed.
Although appreciating the administration's plan to remove the statue, Heru said the group would go ahead with its lawsuit.
"We will only withdraw the lawsuit if the city administration publicly apologizes for its one-sided decision to permit the statue," he told The Jakarta Post.
Hawaiian-born Obama moved to Indonesia at the age of six to live with his mother, Ann Dunham, and Indonesian stepfather Lolo Soetoro.
Obama attended third grade at the school in 1968. He returned to Hawaii at the age of 10 to live with his maternal grandparents.
Also from the link in 54:
At that time Ann explained to Obama that his father had to go and live apart. Scholarships are not sufficient if they come, but Junior said Obama, racism from two-family marriages destroy his father and mother. In his book, Obama said his mother, Ann, who was called Tut, did not want black-law, while Obama's grandfather in Kenya do not want white law.
well according to this video the grant for Annenberg Project was 49.2 million dollars, surely ALL of it didn’t go to improve Chicago schools
I have frequently wondered if both he and Geitner come from established CIA families — everything makes so much more logical sense if he’s simply a generation spy who grew up having a dozen different identiites. LOL
Thanks, expatguy. I hope you ping LucyT and Fred Nerks. I want to see everything you find.
Stanley Ann coming back to the United states has to be tied to the theory by techdude that Maya’s BC was used to create Obama’s BC.
And then Lame Cherry had his own ideas.
As noted before, Barack Obama’s sister, Maya, has 2 online registered birth months of August and September. This would point to Ann Dunham having had Maya out of the country, too and in a few weeks hauled her back to Hawaii for a late registration too to be an American.
I was hoping you would be around to add some insight. Please keep us informed as you have the chance. Many thanks.
More like an established NKVD/KGB families.
More seriously (maybe) when he was a young lad in Indonesia, a time when foreigners were very unwelcome, the Lolo family told everyone he was from Irian Jaya to explane away his curly hair.
He’s spent his whole life pretending to be what he’s not.
Geeesh, it must be boring for Michelle & Barack to lurk on this site to learn what nomal Americans are thinking and chatting about.
Anyway, that's why lots of people claim that Mossad REALLY has all the "goods" on BHO, but of course will never reveal them.
Love this quote from Lame Cherry:
I actually requested a reporter babe to check into this concerning the hospitals in Hawaii weeks ago as I asked her, “Just why is everyone taking a Democratic state’s word, a Democratic employee’s word for a Democratic candidate?”
Posted 7-25-08. Here we are, nearly 19 months later . . .
I'm not sure that I can digest anymore irregularities with the Soetoro family, it's just mindboggling.
Stanley Ann for sure had a difficult delivery with at least one child with the big head he has.
Here we are 19 months later. The signs were all there, the stories about Obama’s radical friends and past, his admitting he was a british citzen after he knew it would be found out.
We never believed we would see the corruption that it took to get Obama elected in America. At least I didn’t.
If you haven’t read lamecherry’s website, there are some great arrticles. Especially the one involving Larry Sinclair and Biden.
Can u post this please...a paper published in the East Africa Journal dated July 1965. Author is Barak H. Obama. The preface puts Barak Obama in 1965 in Nairobi working on his Doctorate. PDF format.
I wonder if that spelling "Tut" squares with other reports of "Annie Toot".
They say they only have microfilms.

That is amazing since Obama was only 4 years old.
Is this inconsistent with our previous knowledge of Barack Sr.? I thought he had gotten his Doctorate at Harvard before returning to Kenya. Apparently not.
Obviously, the co-author of the paper is Barack, Sr., the alleged biological father of Barack II. We do know that Sr. returned to Kenya after his education in the US at Hawaii, then Harvard, and spent almost all of the remainder of his life in his native country.
