How did Suriname get its independence?

Suriname gained independence from the Netherlands on November 25, 1975. It was a peaceful process, with Dutch consent, that seemed a natural outcome of the Charter for the Kingdom of the Netherlands [Statuut voor het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden]. Enacted in 1954, the Charter granted Suriname a limited form of self-government, with the Netherlands retaining control of defense and foreign affairs.
