Norway demonstrated for Qatari workers 2022
The Nordics joined Germany, Belgium and Sweden in supporting migrant workers in Qatar, the venue for the World Cup next year. Before the game against the Netherlands, Stale Solbakken’s team came out with a giant blanket in which they expressed a clear message towards organization of the next World Cup.
“Fair play for migrant workers! Human rights on and off the field “, it was possible to read in the banner that all the footballers carried prior to the start of the match.
And it is that according to the report “In the best of his life” published last August, Amnesty International denounced that Qatar has not investigated the death of thousands of migrant workers, mostly from India, Nepal and Bangladesh, in the last decade.
The authorities of this country attribute these deaths imprecisely to “natural causes”, despite the fact that all indications point to long hours of work in a climate as extreme as that of this country. On the other hand, an investigation by the British newspaper The Guardian encrypted in 6 thousand 500 deaths in the construction of the facilities of the next World Cup.
