Pakistani widow of Ali Enterprises factory fire visits Germany to appeal to German Retailer KiK

From 23 to 27 November 2015, Shahida Parveen and Farhat Fatima from Pakistan will visit Berlin to draw attention to the global campaign demanding KiK provide long term compensation to the families affected by the Ali Enterprises factory fire in 2012. Shahida Parveen, a widow of one of the workers who was killed in the fire, intends to deliver her #MakeKikPay petition to KiK representatives during her stay in Germany. She will be accompanied by Farhat Fatima from the Pakistan Institute of Labour Education and Research (PILER), an organisation that signed a legal agreement with KiK for a negotiated settlement of long-term compensation to the survivors and victims’ families of the Ali enterprises tragedy.
