Horrible Saudi abuse of Ethiopian worker

This video says about itself:

Saudi family hang Ethiopian maid from hook – brutally beat her

22 Nov 2013

Saudi Arabian family hang their Ethiopian maid upside down from a hook and beat her to bloody pulp. She is drenched in blood from the whips and sticks that the Saudi men use to beat her.

LiveLeak.com adds:

Non-European foreign workers in the Gulf states are treated as de-facto slaves, with no human rights and are kept as virtual prisoners by their respective “employers” and forced to endure harsh treatment for little pay.

A recent report by Amnesty International slammed the worsening state of human rights abuses in the country. Among the myriad criticisms leveled in the report, it was noted that migrant workers and other minorities regularly suffer abuse and “excessive use of force” at the hands of authorities.

  4. I keep hearing more and more stories about these terrible human rights abuses in the Gulf States. This is certainly akin to the way in which slaves were abused. Makes my blood run cold.


    • Yes, horrible indeed. And often, this is neglected in corporate media in NATO countries, as the regimes in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, etc, are considered to be economic and military allies.
