WAPDA | the eviction of a generation - Trailer

What is a home? Can a home be a dangerous building? Can it be a country which does not accept you? A thousand people, including women and children, were evicted one night in May 2013 from a run down and dangerous building in the Mirpur area of Dhaka, Bangladesh. They were thrown out onto the streets along with their belongings without any housing arrangements. They have remained by the roadside for more than a year.These Bihari people belong to a community whose 'history' is tainted in Bangladesh . The wider Bengali community not only reminds them of that tainted history but excludes them from mainstream life.
