Qatar 2022 or should we say Welcome Qatar, but not in prehistory, but in a modern era that should take us to a civilized country of the 21st century for the next World Cup announced with such clamor by FIFA
Qatar 2022 return to slavery or is it better to emphasize that the Emir of Qatar is working to give light to the beauty of his kingdom, always in problematic relations with the state of Israel but especially with the United Arab Emirates and gloat listening to a chorus of “Welcome Qatar” ?
Has the Qatarian kingdom receiving a good polish given its Emir the possibility to bring fresh money into its coffers?
Did the Emir take advantage of the opportunity presented to him with the World Cup Qatar 2022?
But Qatar 2022 has a lot of dust under the carpet, and it is dust, unfortunately, obtained with the enslavement of the workers of Nepal and Bangladesh.
This information cannot be denied even if the major newspapers of some European countries are trying to pass the news on quiet, contrary to what Amnesty International denounces with overwhelming evidence the abuses perpetrated on the skin of workers used to the limit of slavery and engaged in the construction of sports facilities.
Qatar 2022 was born in the shadow of news that should upset civil society, but especially FIFA, which is its promoter, where the Qatari kingdom arrives to accept abuses against those who need to work, allowing them to engage with “recruiters” in the payment of sums ranging from 500 to 4300 dollars and putting the workers in a position to not know how to pay off their debt and finally be able to say welcome Qatar.
Both the Nepalese government and the government of Bangladesh, admitted that there were many deaths for Qatar 2022, later there was a television documentary according to which the dead workers were around 1400 and they were all human beings helping to build the football stadiums for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
This news should outrage and shudder all those who say they belong to a civil and democratic society, open to multi-culturalism and respect for life in general, but you have to realize that millions of dollars are being made and economic interests are higher than the value that is attributed, by the kingdom of Qatar, to human life and especially to its respect and I don’t think that Indian, Bangladeshi and Nepalese workers can ever say Welcome Qatar or Qatar 2022 slavery.
The question that arises spontaneously is: “but FIFA, after having had the evidence of what perpetrated on the lives of other human beings, how does it accept the continuation of the event in Qatar?”
And those who sit and fight for human rights at the ONU, FAO and many non-governmental organizations for the protection of human life, how come they remain silent?
The conscience of every human being belonging to civil society should feel mortified and not accept such a massacre and, on the contrary, shout out loud the end of this barbarity for the joy of seeing a balloon roll or force the organization of Qatar 2022 and its leaders to be more vigilant and oblige the Qatari leaders to respect human life and safeguard human life avoiding the so-called white deaths and quickly liquidate those who have demanded the leap from the workers.
Many people thought that slavery was just a bad episode and horrible path of human beings towards other human beings, but in the 21st century, discovering that this abomination still exists should create discomfort in each of us or not make us say welcome Qatar.
Amnesty International has proved the overwhelming power of the “recruiters” with the complete alienation of employment contracts, making human beings live in dilapidated shacks stacked as in a camp worthy of the Second World War, poorly paid and often never paid wages for the return of the commitment made by the worker and the seizure of the passports of the same workers are abuses to which we should put an end, putting an end to the World Cup Qatar 2022 and assigning the event to another country certainly more democratic, liberal and civil.
It’s horrible in 2020 to have to bring up a past that is now far away and that many people would like to forget, that has brought incredible suffering to the people of Israel, but of course, the treatment that was given to the workers of Nepal and Bangladesh is no different and only the atrocities that were perpetrated in the past are missing and we think that perhaps the Emir of Qatar could put an end to this havoc so that his kingdom is not remembered as we all remember Germany in 1940-1945.
We have also found job advertisements for workers from India in an independent and non-governmental newspaper, as many may think, welcomeqatar, and we wonder why an information magazine that should be independent does not report the news and, on the contrary, sponsors the event and inserts research ads for Indian workers?
We think that everyone has the right democratically and freely to think as he wants, we just think that it should dissuade those who need work for the event Qatar 2022 and avoid them to end up in slavery.
