Tazreen memorial day on Jurain Graveyard 25.11.2017: 5th anniversary of the Tazreen factory fire: 112 died. Compensations agreement still not completly fulfilled by western companies. the court case is procrastinated and still far from finished. Like worldwide on such occasions the official graveyard for the Tazreen Fire and Rana Plaza collapse victims in the south of Dhaka became a kind of catwalk for political organisations. Very few individuals seemed to commemorate the victims.
