No football World Cup in dictatorial Qatar


This video is called Inside Story – The plight of Qatar‘s migrant workers.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Foul play

Wednesday 30 January 2013

Awarding Qatar the 2022 World Cup was always a terrible decision. It was iffy for footballing reasons alone, indefensible for political reasons – and deeply suspect, given the corruption allegations which have repeatedly been levelled at the decision-making process.

Nevertheless, gay fans were divided over holding the Cup in a country where homosexuality is punishable by flogging and up to five years in prison.

The Gay Football Supporters Network called for a total boycott but the anti-homophobia Justin Campaign argued: “We should encourage LGBT people to go over to Qatar and rub salt in the wounds.”

It is time to revisit the issue in light of revelations that Qatar – a notorious bastion of modern-day slavery – has broken promises to Fifa that it would clean up its act.

No supporter with any conscience can defend the prospect of £200,000-a-week Premier League megastars strutting their stuff in stadiums built by forced labour and soaked in the blood of hundreds of dead workers.

England’s fans and players alike should boycott Qatar 2022.
