AbdouMaliq Simone and his colleague Elisa Sutanudjaja have just published a conversation with the editors of the Radical Housing Journal, Michele Lancione and Hung Ying Chen. In ‘Pluralizing lockdowns’: Grassroots responses to housing in Jakarta amid COVID-19’ they share their observation and analysis about the changes and continuities of housing struggles during the COVID-19 pandemic. In contrast to the passive responses from the government, they discuss the emerging challenges for tenants and depict a plurality of geographical changes, communal responses and organizing strategies as grassroots efforts in pandemic containment.
