According to Jakarta Legal Aid Institute report, Jakarta Provincial Government had conducted 113 evictions in 2015 and 325 more places are threatened by eviction in 2016. At least 70% of evictions were carried out unilaterally and without any proportionate solutions.
Now, some evicted area had been flattened. The rationale is still the same: public order and environmental protection (green open space, normalization of reservoir or river) for the sake of a better life.
Jakarta Unfair tries to challenge the government thesis of “a better life after eviction.”
