Amnesty International report yet another reminder that Qatar can be horrible, horrible place
Among other abuses, 90 percent of Qatar’s 1.35 million foreign workers have their passports withheld by employers.
It’s called slavery.
Direct link to the Amnesty International report on Qatar’s labor practices in anticipation of the 2022 World Cup in PDF format for download.
The report is the product of three years’ investigation; certainly worth ten minutes to download and skim, if not a bit longer to read.
Slavery is alive and well in the 21st century, and it’s bringing you the World Cup in nine years. What are you going to do about it, futbol fans?
