Stop the World Cup in Qatar
End the Nepali slave labour being used to build the World Cup stadiums and infrastructure.
See Guardian video exposing it: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/sep/25/revealed-qatars-world-cup-slaves
Why is this important?
Nepali immigrants are being subjected to slave labour by Qatari construction firms building the World Cup stadiums and infrastructure. Qatar sits on an ocean of oil with a population of just under 2 million. The country is rolling in money and can easily afford to pay a living wage but instead it is choosing to treat the immigrants like slaves. The World Cup cannot be allowed to take place in Qatar in these circumstances. We call on FIFA to seek a new location for the World Cup and the British Government to boycott the Qatar World Cup unless the immigrant construction workers are paid a living wage, back pay and reparations for past mistreatment.
You can write to the Qatari government to put pressure on it to end slave labour. You can email the Qatari Labour Inspection Department: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also write, phone or fax the UK Qatari Embassy to complain about the use of slave labour at the World Cup stadiums and associated infrastructure sites:
