27 sep. 2012

International unions, the ITUC and BWI, have issued a formal complaint to the International Labour Organisation, presenting evidence that Qatar is breaching global freedom of association standards by refusing to recognise the rights of migrant workers. Watch these Nepalese workers talk about what working life in Qatar is really like.
Lilly Jetti
THE F.I.F.A. should stop work and say to Qatar that worker must be engaged and regularly paid. NO MORE PEOPLE SUFFERING !!!
Migrant workers mistreated in Qatar is known to all.
Walton Pantland
Good video, well done for highlighting this.
Diego Candia
Yay so excited for the 2022 World Cup. (sarcasm)
Acehnese Nomad
Thank you very much.

2022 World Cup should be stopped in Quatar …
amazing how people act tough behind their tiny screens while in real life they will be the first chicken out .. lets just agree to disagree since this never gonna end
Armis Game
tell it to the people before they go to Qatar see if it makes a difference — what they know is millions of their country men are making millions of dollars in Qatar and send it to their respective countries, they know about the problems and deaths hear and there but it doesn’t stop them because they are looking at the greater probability, not the lesser probability. What they know for sure is if they do nothing, and remain in their own country, they are assured of NOTHING.
nice speech .. now put all the words you said in action and GL
Armis Game
Yeah, and given to a county with NO labor issues The only reason there are labor unions, labor laws, and labor lawyers is because of abuses, furthermore, the only reason they remain is because the abuses are never ending. Those who go to Qatar in 2022 will experience something that no other World Cup audience has ever experienced — outdoor air conditioning of a whole stadium.
Md Shabbir
the main culprits are the agents overseas placement Consultancies in india nepal they just take contracts and send there own countrimens without any care
lets just agree to disagree and end this discussion 🙂
Acehnese Nomad
and ‘Maybe’ if you give the passports back to the owners + exit permit, millions of people would leave this country and you would have NOTHING to build.
Caleb Schwarzenegger
I am working in Qatar and I have never regret Qatar is the best God bless Qatar.
a al
people why don’t you understand the situation, this is life people work hard to be able to support there family, what can QATAR do to the wether? its the environment, and regarding the rights, they do have rights, they work like normal people they are provided with accommodation, they are provided with food and they are allowed to do  what ever they want wen they finish the job allocated to them, if its about the money it simple, rise the salary, cut the tickets, visa fees, accommodation and food!
Acehnese Nomad
You’re definitely losing it after your divorce. You’re writing in capitals as if you’re screaming. 2 years in Doha will not give you enough knowledge about the locals here and how they treat most laborers. I’ve been over a decade in Doha, I work in construction industry for 6 years and I have seen how these men are treated.

The Qatar World Cup 2022 stadiums and infrastructure are being built by Nepalese men employed in Qatar’s construction industry who work for little or no pay. Appalling living conditions and unsafe employment are not the only difficulties they face: there is pressure and disbelief from families in Nepal when no money is sent back home.
The Guardian’s report exposing labour conditions in Qatar ► Part three ►
6 years later and more than 7000 people died! This breaks my heart! This is awful, we life in a world that practices slavery 😢
Viking Racer 16
Fifa is basically murdering people by welcoming Quatar to be in the world cup.
Abhilash Aniyan
If Qatar is doing this to build football stadiums, I don’t think I will be watching the world cup…
Marijn den Harder
This video should be played on TV before every match starts…
Here we have Al Jazeera snitching on every country’ dirty laundry, yet they are completely silent to Qatar’s dirty diaper🤬
Javier Martinez
And FIFA sanctioned Mexican Fans for Chanting during Matches…and England Fans…But people dying during construction of stadiums in Qatar is okay, as long as they make Money…Boicot Qatar
Kamal Raj Baral
I’m from Nepal. I cried after watching this. I feel very bad about our brothers being slave. Many of our brothers died because of Qatar. So every Nepalese is hating Qatar and I think every human is going to hate Qatar after watching this.
Rishon Bhuju
Recent studies shows that more than 1500 Nepalese already died in stadium construction in Qatar😢😢
Mohi Uddin Pabel
Its 2019 and nothing has changed.
FIFA ”WE ARE NOT CORRUPT!” Also FIFA ”Lets Play Football in the desert”.

4 Migrant Workers in Qatar – Trapped in Slave-like conditions as they work for World Cup 2022

Back to menu     IMPORTANT CONTENT

8 jun. 2019

How migrant workers are being exploited in Qatar. Due to the documentary “TRAPPED IN QATAR” FIFA has for the first time admitted a violation in workers’ standards as Qatar prepares for the FIFA 2022 World Cup. The revelation comes following this investigative report by Benjamin Best for German broadcaster WDR. Broadcasted June 5th 2019. WDR journalist Benjamin Best went to Qatar undercover without the approval of the Qatari government, armed with a hidden camera, to shed light on slave like conditions and the human cost of the 2022 World Cup. 
It’s another troubling development surrounding the working conditions in Qatar for workers, which have been heavily criticized for several years by unions and human rights groups alike. 
While a lack of pay, terrible housing conditions and lack of food were recurring themes, so too were the deaths of migrant workers. The Nepali government granted WDR’s request for official data regarding Nepali workers in Qatar, which showed that 1,426 had passed away between 2009 and 2019.
Bibek Neupane
A shame on those 40 people who have disliked this video…
Ruben Pereira
The 2022 World Cup will forever be remembered as a disgrace to the sport.
FIFA and their “beautiful game”.
Thank you for the English version.. Now many more people will understand the situation..
Richard Straka
FIFA dont care, money rules, thats the system of this world
Rios Video Foto
I lived in qatar for 6 years. I can confirm.
anil shrestha
Truly sad .our Nepalese government is always deaf and dumb in situation like these.our government is more corrupted than than these contractors. They seek for bribe and hungry for power. We are helpless.
Transparent Aid
Thank you Benjamin Best for this production. Jari Kinnunen, president Transparent Aid, Sweden. In spite of reports already in 2010 of hundreds of dead migrant workers in Qatar, FIFA and Sepp Blatter announced that Qatar will host the 2022 FIFA World Cup. 8-9 years later the situation is pretty much the same or as described by the current FIFA president Gianni Infantino in november 2018: “Already on the social side….already now it has had an very important social impact…this world cup will leave really a great legacy”.
Superb Radical
FIFA should do something about this tragic situation! I ask Nepalese to put pressure on your government to do more for these pitiful workers! Make your voices heard!
The One Who Knocks
This is ABSOLUTELY heartbreaking & I’m genuinely worried for their safety now that they’re speaking about the situation publicly. FIFA/Platter/Infantino & whoever contributed to Qatar hosting the WC should be ashamed of themselves.
“Without the World Cup, these debates wouldn’t have happened, and these improvements wouldn’t have happened either.” Wow seriously Infantino?? Seriously???
Jan Roskott
This should be boycotted! I’m a huge football fan but we need to draw the line here
I’ll get this downloaded in HD, the Qataris will surely pay google to delete it 🤣
My dad moved us to Saudi Arabia when I was a kid, back in the 70’s. We lived there until the 90’s. Everything described in this video happened around or to us. He had his passport confiscated by his employer. He was routinely not paid for long stretches – my mother had to push her way into his boss’ office, and beg and cry for money. We saw people being beaten or detained without trial by the police. The only laws that were followed were “the old ways”. The gulf states are savages, if you look at their history you’ll see that savagery runs deep in their culture. Other Arabs, like those from Levant, or Egypt, they are as cultured as anyone can be, but the gulf arabs … there is a reason Wahabiism, violent islamic fundamentalism, sprang from those people.
The Couchsurfer
This is really sad. It`s all about the money and corruption among the big guys. #makeachange
Workers rights are human rights… tragically sad </3
Players should go on strike before this world cup takes place
paul gitao
His wife crying at 10:28 broke my heart, it’s a pity
Selow Hgts
This has being going on in the MidEast for 40 years. Its surprising they can still get anyone to go there to work.
Abdul Vahid
This is 💯% true. I had 5 months unpaid salaries when I finally left.
User 97
One of the worst World Cup to host ever and FIFA is corrupted and doesn’t do anything and we’re going to see one of the “best” World Cup ever held in the middle of winter in 2022 on stadiums built by 1,500 deaths.
Dingle McCringleberry
I can’t wait for their oil deposits to dry up. Then, and only then will the Qataris suffer like these workers do every day.
Gaurav Marathe
Where’s al Jazeera at?
Ben Shaffer
That is every country in the Middle East. I live in Kuwait, and it’s the exact same.
Nilesh Kumar
Really hardworking journalism to show whats going on with these workers… Hope this helps these workers.. 🙏
Дендроид Вивернович Драконов
Full boycott of the 2022 world Cup in Qatar! No fans! Large-scale investigation and punishment of all guilty! What is it but slavery in the 21st century? Poor workers…
I am from Qatar and honestly, the FIFA world cup shouldn’t be in Qatar most people here are ignorant of what is happening it’s frustrating being here and not being able to do anything about it nobody here even belives this is happening and I can’t bring it up without hearing these words “it’s fake”
carlo gilbert zamora
i worked in qatar for 3 years. at first, i defended this country against bashers. but when i saw the real situation, esp. the Ministry of Labor’s failure to address for migrants welfare, i feel disgust with the qatar government.
Everyone share this! This needs to be on the news!
Brian Swanick
Really appreciate the risks that GmbH are taking to get this info out there. It’s hard to know how bad things are when these issues don’t get exposed.
Thanks for this good documentation and making aware of the Situation. I hope this reaches YouTube trends.
Even if they want to openly talk, they don’t know the repercussions for speaking openly and you should have still tried to hide the details
BBE lovatoo
80% of migrant workers in Qatar Has same situation as shown In The video’s. I live here since 2011.
Absolutely heartbreaking

FIFA organized this, and they do not care. Do not waste your energy on them. Countries, sponsors and organizations need to withdraw completely from this system (FIFA). It is corrupt through and through, and anyone participating either directly or indirectly (like television viewers) are complicit, like it or not.
joe Morrison
I hope all the player pull out this coming worldcup
FIFA should/must burn.
Nepali babu
Corrupted Nepal government never understands like these problems,
Unlike with a lot of claims, this exposure shows that there are and have been problems
Power Stroke6.7
The richest country and minimum wage is like 50 cents an hour. And you don’t even pay that. So free labor not hard to see how you get rich here or should I say stay rich. And Joe Biden want’s to support Qatar’s actions by lifting the blockade.
Marc10 Huncho
This is the life In Qatar I really experienced miserable life from the company I was working… Let’s pray for changes in Qatar before world cup, the government must be very keen with the companies and arrange for mandatory inspections atleast twice a month. The problem is also with the government not doing follow-ups that’s why employees are mistreated without their knowledge
Destin Games
I hope none of them are found having had some terrible accident :/
Dandom Rude
This is so fucking insane and the world just ignores it. I feel so bad for those men.
In interview with the Emir Tamim al Thani he said that Qatar is against unfair use and slavery of immigrants labor because no “Qatari would go against laws” and that he personally care about it.
Mahesh Bohora
I workin qatar as a security and they give 1400 qr monthly bt I’m not happy with this salary. Qatar government never think about labour. Even after world cup

Holy shit this haven’t been solved even after 4 damn years?! Shame on you Qatar!!! Even have good Quran recitors but do not behave like a real Muslim!!!!!!!!
Everyone knows the corrupt Nepali government not gonna bothers about it but Where is the human rights activists? This video should share by BBC NEWS ,CNN ,FOX NEWS..etc
arjun pariyar
There are so many 3rd party companies in Qatar, in this way Nepalese, and others migrant works have been exploited. Thank you for kindness ❤️ video. Qatar government must be raid into 3rd party companies if they want to solve the actual problem of migrant workers.
Mary Anne Gatbonton
richest country but my god, how migrant workers are treated?!!! Treat them well!! you cannot take ur money to your grave.

Please don’t degrade Qatar I was working there and it’s a great place to work and live they are giving the best facilities and attractive salaries to their workers. Qatar Labour Ministry works effectively throughout the country.

Yet Qatar is a Muslim nation. Believers of the Quran. Peace and Equality to all peoples. HYPOCRITES!
Rahma Eyad
I am honestly in shock. I hope the Qatari government does more to demolish this situation.
Congrats and thank you for this documentary realised under very difficult and dangerous conditions, reminding at least from time to time that (almost) nothing has changed for the better in Qatar ( which is not really better in the other Gulf states, maybe with the exception of Oman only) and pointing out the real and terrible situation, especially for these poor helpless workers, a situation which (doesn t in every case but ) can happen as well unfortunately to every foreigner /worker under a Qatari ID. All still depends from the Qatari ( and in most Gulf states still existing ) ‘Kafala’ system! and their arbitrary abuse of it (‘Sponsoring’ system= modern slavery), a system which applies for all foreigners in Qatar! …whether you can leave the country ( exit visa mandatory each time you want/ need to leave the country and valid for 7 days only etc.), whether you can open a bank account ( which is fully controlled by the state whenever they want and block your accounts, as well for no reason), whether you can stay in an accomodation or get housing allowances, whether you can change work /’Sponsor’ by a ‘release letter/ or no objection letter’ ( which was said to be changed as well etc..). And note : Until now the Qatar Labour Law was and has been a whole farce. Even if you are holding a contract under Qatar Labour Law ( which has been amended so many times to ‘improve’ the situation since 2004 – and 5 times to my knowledge) in English and Arabic corrrectly, a foreigner will 1) have few chances to get his rights in the Qatari courts 2) it might turn out, once you are in trouble bc only of an arbitrary behaviour by your ‘sponsor’/’kafeel’ ( who simply refuses to give you an ‘exit visa’, or doesn t pay, or block your account, or or- and all without a valid, legal reason) , and even after having opened already court cases against your ‘Sponsor’/Kafeel’= employer t h a t your contract is n o t in accordance with Qatar Labour Law although you signed it under Qatar Labour Law conditions- since suddenly they pretend your company would be ‘semi- governmental’ – which cannot be seen and was /is not written anywhere ! Therefore: Your so called contract under ‘Qatar Labour Law’ does not apply since your ‘kafeel/sponsor’/employer is semi- governmental- which you will only find out sometimes after your 5th or 9th so called ‘Hearing’ in the Doha Court ( only many times no ‘Hearing’ takes place since nobody shows up from the ‘defendant’ party = your ‘sponsor’/’kafeel’), although scheduled. And after 9 hearings- like in my case ( and many others I knew personally) a lawyer showed up suddenly from the Ministry of Interior only stating that ALJ for ex would be semi- governmental and so, the Qatari Labour Law does not apply!) This happened to me personally with Al Jazeera and the Qatar Stars League/ Qatar Football Association! Both were under Qatar Labour Law, but at the end ‘semi- governmental’. So no chance to be treated under Qatar Labour Law! (and no other official trial to be opened by the foreign plaintiff) Nothing has changed so far, or almost nothing during the past 10 years. Even the FIFA is and was previously fully aware about many ‘cases’ of abitrary abuse of the system and the heavy violations of human rights of players ( I knew/know) and my own case! N.B. And without the British ‘Guardian’ who finally made the abuses and the Kafala/modern slavery system in Qatar public in 2013 until now nothing would have happened and the world would not even know (although the use/abuse of the current ‘Kafala’ system has been ongoing in its actual abusive way since 1995 since the former Emir, Sheikh Khalifa was dethroned by his son Sheikh Hamad, who was now followed by Sheikh Tamim. What they did ever since ? The three monkeys ! Conclusion: No way to hold a Football World Cup in such a country which is continuously abusing and violating human rights in a very massive way ! When will this ‘Kafala’/’Sponsorship’ system = modern slavery finally be demolished ?
Aljazeera keep silence on this…..

boycott. tell your friends. There have been over 7,000 “workers” dead (aka human beings, fathers, sons, brothers) The number is more than the Guardian report as some countries haven’t reported their deaths – workers from Kenya for example. So 6,700 dead men is a low number.
Krishnaman Tamang
I am so sad to watch it,qatar goverment need to do something about the imigrant worker,
Victoria happy
This is slavery. Boycott FIFA.
александр караманов
The workers’ concerns have been addressed – secret police will ensure that the rest of the world doesn’t hear anything embarrassing about a state-sponsored slave trade operating in the 21st century. If you didn’t have a reason to think we should sever all ties with the Gulf states until now, what else do you need?
Michelle Guarin
Qatar should be ashamed of themselves.

All of this are in together qatar, UAE, Saudi Arabia and many more Gulf country.
Selow Hgts
Its called indentured slave labor. Np pay and you can’t leave.
Am I wrong or is there something in Arab culture that encourages adult men to abuse everybody else? If you’re an immigrant, you’re a chattel slave – no more rights than a dog. Arab women and children only a half step above. This is regardless of religion, as there are Christian Arabs and I’ve heard some stories of abuse there too.
I literally live 1 hour away if I take a plane and I’m not going. Sad

But people say Qatar is the best place to be and there are greener pastures. Kenyans say it’s the best place to be
J.s 222
It’s not just Qatar – it’s throughout the Middle East including Dubai$. It’s a horrible thing – global exploitation!
Foreign workers make up 88% of Qatar’s total population. That number should scare the local bosses/government to be more kind because you don’t want 88% armed with any weapons.

Although Qatar does not deserve to host the upcoming World Cup, and while I also agree with advocating for the host to be reassigned, all these poor migrant workers who made it happen, would have died in vain…
Tea Dione
I’ve only one question- why are you making so many children without any money,any house,any work????? Why will you not work,earn money first before marriage???? That’s why so many workers like the slaves in other countries
mohammad zohorul
The companies you showed is one of the shady companies. Government is cracking down on those companies. These sub contractors are oppressing people. This has nothing to do with Qatari system.
Never work for muslims.
this is an old video from 2011, and its a fake propaganda
Arun Giri
I believe that Qatar has given nice opportunity to those Nepalese who is qualified for work and they all are happy to work in Qatar and they are satisfied with their salary as well. Only the problems for unskilled workers, my concern is only why our government is allowing unskilled worker to work in Qatar? Do not blame others, our government should think those problems in advance and please do not spread this kind of rumors that can effect our relationship with Qatar.
It’s totally propaganda against of Qatar. some neighbours country no like qatar, make fake story & vedio
Khaled Hedayed
Its amazing how your channel really dig deep about human rights cases. So why not go to KSA or UAE and really dig deep there ? How about the death of Jamal Kashogghi ? How about the people in Yemen being killed by Saudi Army? Also this video have no official resources of the false facts its presenting. So how many you got paid by the people who told to do this ha buddy ? 😀
yabnti !
These people don’t like Qatar and most of the clips were fake now I work at Qatar I have money I have car I have everything and if i need anything the country gives it to me it’s a beautiful place and I never ever saw this and I’ve been mostly every where in Qatar… alhumdilila none of these things are real I love this country to the moon and back

If I was a player, I wouldn’t go. Other country’s should not send teams
Fans are the consumers of this. They have power. If they cared at all, they could demand change.

They don’t care. FIFA doesn’t care. The sponsors don’t care.
Tyler Hackner

Nicholas Williams
I was deployed there 3 times over the past few years and when I’d go venture to to local areas I’d see these guys working in these insane temperatures like dogs. Sadly nothing will be done because Qatar is swimming in oil and no one wants to risk losing on trade relations.
Eye Exaggerate
This is on FIFA just as much as it is Qatar
Paul Honey
Definitely be boycotting this.
I’ve seen this first hand. Qatar, UAE they are all in violation of human rights. FIFA should immediately strip them of the 2022.
Vice did a report on this 5 years ago. They take their passports and force them to work until they “payoff” their debt for coming to work. Same in Dubai but no one cares.
Mo Lester
I went to qatar for contracting a couple years ago where I was overseeing all the workers at construction site for a local hotel. You wouldn’t believe how many conversations I’ve had where they tell me their passports are stripped, they get paid a couple dollars a day & haven’t gotten a day off in 10 years. Some haven’t seen their families in decades. Be thankful for your current position in life, some have it much worse.
Lindy Brown
How is it even possible to have that many construction deaths? A handful of deaths would be bad but 6500 is insanity! Obviously there is something incredibly disturbing going on.
As a sri lankan living in Qatar, I can 100% say this is true. I’m privileged enough to have hard working parents that earn enough money to give me and my brothers a comfortable life, but I cant say the same to others…
The players should take a stand and refuse to play in Qatar.
Terrence King
The players should not play for these human traffickers and sellers of lies .
Bernard M
Dubai was built the same way, the whole damn city. People just want their stupid selfies, nobody cares….😓
This isn’t a Qatar story, this is a capitalism story. Capitalism will always create slaves. Always.
We need to boycott Fifa. Let everyone you know, via social media or otherwise, what these people have suffered and will continue to do so in the name of Fifa and greed.

There’s one thing you NEED to report on regarding the Qatar World Cup. Several Norwegian teams, fan groups and players have gone to the Norwegian Football Federation (NFF) and suggested a boycott of the World Cup. This will be discussed with NFF in the next couple of weeks and could lead to a serious domino-effect

How could they allow this to happen? Futbol stars should speak out against this atrocity. If they don’t, they are culprits to this horrendous acts, by this government.
Reid Fleming, World's Toughest Milkman
“Do you feel that Qatar has been treated unfairly?” “Yes, very much so.” The oppressor always cries out when he strikes you.
A Morfus
And Russia slaughtered their street dogs before their World Cup so visitors wouldn’t see them. Teams have a choice to participate. Companies have a choice to sponsor. People have a choice to watch. Perhaps boycotts? The power of consumerism goes a long way.
This is capitalism without regulation; this is what Republicans want: NO workplace safety regulation, NO food safety, NO environmental regulations.
Guess whose not watching the World Cup. They shouldn’t move forward with the World Cup at Qatar. I hope players and countries boycott.

This happens around the world. People in power will always abuse that power. Instead of fighting WARS to defend/protect people we WAR for greed, resources, and power.

As a kid who grew up in Saudi Arabia I’m not surprised to hear Qatar does this. Same thing with Dubai. There’s this whole under world of people who keep the country going with free labor. I remember once my dad hired a man to help with a party when we lived in Saudi. Afterward we drove him home to this dark shanty area I never knew existed in Jubail. My moms jewelry ended up missing but my parents didn’t go after him because they knew he’d probably be killed or at least get a hand chopped off. No one is gonna do anything about it because oil money talks.

I won’t be watching a single game in that world Cup, fifa are corrupt that’s been proven and have been paid millions to award this to Qatar, this should never went ahead! I hope clubs and players pull together and boycott this tournament!!!
Hans Christopherson
Please tell me there’s talk of a boycott cause this has clearly gone WAY too far
Thanks for highlighting this! I feel like people are afraid to criticize these countries!
Saitama Geo
There’s gonna be some bad spirits during the world cup. I hope every player breaks a leg and they cant play and fifa goes bankrupt due to canceling the cup and law suits.
Fun fact: the IOC is NEARLY as corrupt as FIFA when it comes to a “the games must be played at any cost, including human” attitude.
That’s very disturbing to see and hear, one could say crimes against humanity, and human trafficking violations, not a pretty picture too a humanitarian, or United Nations. 🇺🇸🇺🇳
Joshua Valentine
Disgusting. They can keep their death cup. Decent people should avoid participating in that ego driven garbage. Seriously enrages me.

When a supposed employer asks for your passport then says “am gonna keep it” , your life is about to be turned upside down. Either 1) You are dealing with a PIMP 2) Slavery as you see in this video

This is so oppressing. I pray for these workers. 🙏

When people say “let’s not bring up politics or race in this this is sport” it’s usually because they have sh*tty take.
Chuck Stark
The US uses a similar system by connecting health care to a worker’s employer and offering only sub-poverty wages.
James Orsby
Why hasn’t the US media made more of issue about this? They’ve sure made every effort to point out what’s going on with the Uighur population in China. What’s going on in Qatar is just as bad, and totally unacceptable.
Damn this is finally getting attention, this type of labor in that area has been on going for years
This has been ongoing for years. Wasn’t their a Kuwaiti beauty vlogger too saying that maids shouldn’t get a day off?

All of the soccer teams should boycott

Rich people see poor people as disposable. Keeping them poor and threatened is used as motivation. It’s absolutely disgusting, and absolutely how rich humans treat poor humans all over the world.

Keaton Tycer
I don’t know why players aren’t refusing to play along anymore. The World Cup is tainted. The only cups tgat matter anymore are Euro and champions league
More ppl died (6,500 ) making world cup stadiums in Qatar than by covid in a year in Canada. But yet its a pandemic. This info should be spoken about more!!!!

I would like to see nations refuse to play there. I would like to win the lottery. There is an equal probability of each.

Wow! This is pretty fuckin’ horrendous! Thank you guys for continuing to do stories like this. Everybody should boycott this!

This is why I won’t be watching in 2022 and FIFA needs to ban Qatar now

If the countries don’t boycott the World Cup, then the players should boycott the World Cup.

Thanks TYT Sports for covering this news. Im from Nepal and i’ve actually heard from the migrant workers working to build their stadiums abt the horrible work conditions and how many poor migrants have died. They dont give a shit about these workers. FIFA is corrupted and wants to take no action. Huge soccer fan myself but i’m planning to not watch a single game to protest. Please do not let the world forget what’s happening to the workers in Qatar. #boycott2022worldcup

players need to boycott the 2022 World Cup!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is true, I can definitely say that modern day slavery exist in that nation
There shouldn’t have even been a cup here to begin with. It was bought. Should have gone to USA, England, Australia or even Morocco. I live for the World Cup but I’ll be surprise if I watch a few games

I wish all the players would be able to take a knee in respect of the workers who lost their lives building all these stadiums… but I doubt it

Boycott the World Cup! It’s supposed to be about unity!!-the whole world coming together!!! BOYCOTT FIFA!!!!
It’s so ridiculous how badly FIFA is handling the next World Cup. They have really been doing shady business with Saudi and Qatar. Somebody oust Infantino already. Terrible FIFA President.
So i have just been reading on Al Jazeera news about all the black people who have unfortunately died at the hands of the police, but i was wondering if Al Jazeera could name any of the migrant workers who were killed while building these football stadiums, Al Jazeera loves to criticize the west but what about what happens in Qatar.
FIFA is so powerful have more members than UN

This is fifa’s fault, shame on them

Kenneth Meye
Why are people surprised? This has been the normal for centuries. Whether it’s a ‘first’ world or ’third’ world nation. Treating laborers as nothing more than cattle is not considered bad in many countries. That is until someone shines a light on the roblem. Then everyone is scrambling to cover it up again
Stadium looks like a giant tiramisu.

FIFA is one of the most corrupt sports organization…if not THE most
So why don’t these teams rise up and say we’re not going to Qatar ?

UAE is the Europeans monarchy and Catholic Churches wet dream. If they could have got a grip on their populations like Saudi Arabia has; slavery would still be in place, human rights would not be a thing, no UN, nations at war constantly for empire expansion… looking at them is like seeing a alternate dystopian universe. Like all the great monuments in history: built on slavery and oppression
Had no previous knowledge of this. In fact, I had a much different concept of Quatar and the U.A.E. as a whole. It’s quite an eye opener!
And you expected some democracy and freedom in a feudal system that runs on the well oiled gears of Sharia Law?
We knew about this for years since they started building it…..
Greg McQueen
Large construction projects of he past would routinely cost the lives of many workers. Panama Canal – 408 dead, Hoover Dam – 96 dead, Brooklyn Bridge – 20 dead. When you here people arguing for deregulation and union busting, this is what they are advocating.

I guess FIFA is done LOL oh well, I never watched anyway. If you like soccer and you’re still young and able bodied enough, it’s way healthier to play your own game than to sit and watch.
Anas Rasheed
This is just how the entire middle east works. You book a flight and drop-down anywhere over here and it’s a similar situation. Qatar just came to the spotlight because of WC being the biggest global attraction in terms of a sporting event.
The commentor
I lived in the gulf for most of my life, and let me tell you that this doesn’t just happen in Qatar. It happens all over the countries that are part of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC for short). Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, UAE, Qatar and Bahrain. We know what the Kafala system is like. You go through it even if you have a decent job. I’m not gonna say what my parents do, but we’ve had our passports confiscated as well. You only get your passport back if you want to travel, or if you need it for any legal procedures. There’s no job security and you can get fired randomly – and this happened to my mother – due to the fact that they’re trying to hire more native workers as opposed to foreigners. Instead of creating new jobs, they fire foreigners with great experience in a managerial position and replace them with natives that do not have a damn idea about what they’re doing. It’s stressful thinking to yourself everyday that one day they can just fire you for that reason and you will become homeless, especially for the fact that there’s a lack of jobs in the market and a lot of people just don’t have the same opportunities as those living in the west, plus the fact that companies are now reluctant to hire foreigners for this very reason. Thus, if you ever get fired all you can do is pack up and leave. And to those parents that have a child in university where they have to pay for their tuition fees, it’s their worst nightmare ever, and I’ve heard stories like that as well. It’s an unfortunate reality for a lot of people.
darrin webber
Look… EVERYONE knows how arabic countries have slavery. It’s common knowledge. Even their language…uses same word for employees and slaves. (“servant”). . US doesn’t care. US government and military just want the oils and a good strategic ports/bases. Hell… Pres. Bush “jr” said himself… “Money is more important than lives”
Boycott the world cup and someone please get in there to free those workers. This is beyond disgusting.
Ollie Pepper
Oh but noooo let’s focus on western culture and how bad it is. Whilst we in the middle east abuse women, disfigure each other as punishment, make religious war with neighbours, keep actual real slaves, fund terrorist programmes and openly want Jews destroyed. Yeah nah let’s make the West look bad though because that’s how propaganda works.

Yeah, I’m not watching 1sec of the world cup. Olympic also on that list.. All you athletes competing should be ashamed.
100% Boycott. Footballers should refuse to play and I mean players from all countries who have qualified. This is a total disgrace!
And a year later after the World Cup is done, like the rest they’ve built in the past it will be abandoned.
The countries who would normally send teams need to boycott.
you never see this shit within real sports like professional slapping

1) How is this 2021? Answer: because someone in the past said this is how years work and we all just agreed on that fact. 2) How are slavery and racism still a thing? Answer: greed, apathy, narcissism, superiority complexes, stereotypes being taken as facts, and weak education of the masses around the world.
Salman Islam
So I follow your channel for a long time now and I am so proud and so happy that you covered this.Migrant workers leave their homes and their dignity just to earn some money and send back to their family. Unfortunately sometimes instead of sending me they send their own dead bodies back home.I am so grateful you covered this.

This is so sad:(. I know the same thing happened to alot workers who came to Iraq to work for US contractors supporting the war.
Brad Krauss
I was at Al Udeid, the air force base right next to where they were building this. I heard many horror stories when I was there around 2017-18 about slave labor. Sad when the military gets billions at the base less than a mile or two away.
Anyone that actually turns up including the players are complicit in the deaths of these people. Crimes against humanity should be treated as such.

JC 1985
Charge Fifa with their deaths
Unfortunatel nobody is going to stop watching the world cup because of this, I think the responsibility lies with the governments of the people who travel there to work to demand better working conditions for their citizens and to help get them out of the country if they don’t.
FIFA should be charged with their deaths, fined, payouts to families of dead workers, charged criminally, Corporate Sponsors pull out, and Qatar banned from hosting anything ever again. I didn’t think Brazil’s atrocities could be outdone but here we are.
meeka shantel
That’s some SAD stuff

I couldn’t believe that many people dying is true so I clicked. amazing how this is not a significant story in the USA or even a story at all. I had no idea about this. Qatar elite have oceans of blood on their hands and the world looks the other way.
P. N
Can we have evidence of this tragedy please? Verified by the embassies and families involved. That would make the Guardian story more legitimate. Hope your channel can ask for clear evidence.
Tazmanian Diva
God is watching all of this. They will answer for the bad deeds one day. I’m curious to see if the players will bend a knee to these atrocities in protest?
More will have died than players on the pitch for every single game combined. I’m shocked an elite competition like the world cup would allow this.

It is funny how fifa always “fights” for equality. When we see what happens. I will not be watching this World Cup. Also, the USA should qualify and make a stand and not go. Toni Kroos was right by saying what he said.
Marianna P
FIFA should not allow the World Cup to be held there!!! I love watching the World Cup, but if this is what it takes no thank you!!!!
This has been a shit storm from day 1… No one should support this tournament…
This story has been in the open for years. They were estimating the total deaths in 2015 or before. And yet on and on it goes. Crazy.

Thank you for your time and insight! ee Well i will also say this here, the fact that covid 19 has been a bit though for us all there is still much advantages when it comes to investing and trading bitcoin and making profitable trades, Bitcoin is currently my most favorite asset and i completely love the technology behind it, so far its been so much profitable for me despite the asset has been unstable for sometime now but the good thing is that its been able to find a good support at 40,000 region against the Dinar equals. But it is not enough to sit back and hold, rather it is time to take advantage of the various signals and strategies at our disposal that will make trading profitable, Get an expert like James William whose daily signals and strategy is top-notch.

FIFA need to do something about these issues, it’s no point in just highlighting it ?do something about it and insure those workers rights are heard out, they deserve better.this is not the first time ? it could happen again this kind practices should be stopped once and for all , after being aware of all this going on’s ? Still public attend these games are equally responsible . Inequalities if all the foreign workers who were skilled or none skilled had to endure while working on construction site and having to live in squalid conditions without pay , no medical or life insurance , you wouldn’t treat people like that if they were working in oil and gas industry?

#PlayersStandUp. No players=No World Cup. No players=No FIFA. May the players provide the voice these workers need.
First and foremost the football players themselves need to protest. Then the teams/clubs/organizations. FIFA should be ashamed of itself.
barbara gonzalez
So why are the games still being held there? In no way could I as an athlete compete in a place that took thousands of lives for me to play in.
Meanwhile we give billions of tax payer dollars to Qatar every year……and the politicians don’t even want to give us a stimulus check because it’s socialist.

I would never visit a dump like that. Everything that glitters isn’t gold. Sacrificing people’s lives for their evil selfish gains.

What is the fascination with the word deploy? Why not just say “use”? I’m not impressed with the strange use of “deploy”. Deploy means moving soldiers to the place they need to be to make war.

It just seems that almost all major sports are full of greedy, money hungry jack holes that couldn’t care less about life or their fellow man. Sad what money does to people. Sickening.
Builders that can’t improve their own living conditions? Third World mentality. As a military member we have been plunked down in the desert and rotation after rotation of personnel we work to improve the living conditions. This we do because we have a mentality of “Leave it better than you found it”. Those that come after us find the living conditions more and more tolerable and strive to improve upon them even more for those that will come after them. Those that own and run Qatar should provide even the most basic of materials so that the workers can utilize their skills to make their living conditions tolerable. And for those of you in the good ‘ol U.S.A., realize that you ARE living in the most socially advanced and compassionate civilization that has ever existed on Earth. Even the poorest have much much better living conditions than those non-Nationals working in Qatar. An additional bit of food for thought: Rich Middle Eastern Countries look down very harshly on non-Nationals. They have no respect and very little tolerance for anyone that is not of their own nationality.
I don’t know if this is true or not but this isn’t really the reason as to why I’m commenting. I’m commenting because people are calling out ALL ARABS for “allegedly” doing this. Let me set an example: “oH No sAuDI ArAbIa iS IN tHiS bEcAuSe tHeY aRe nExT tO EaChOtHEr!!”. What type of logic is that? Basically what I’m saying is that don’t generalize all Arabs since they have nothing to do with the stadiums and etc.
Darrol Dewey Jones
Karmas real and these Quatarians will find out the hard way .This is apalling .
All of this injustice and inhumanity for an event that will only last a month and stadiums, etc. that will eventually become a ghost town left to rot away like the ones in Brasil. But as long as people are willing to disregard such injustices and instead patronize the games, FIFA and their investors will continue to do business as usual.

Thank you Sepp Blatter for being a horrendous human being

I’ve been to a few world cups – USA, France, Germany, S. Africa, but when they announced Qatar was hosting, I pretty much gave up on FIFA. I saw S. Africa first hand and it turned me completely off. Went from rabid to, meh. Greed strangles the life out of everything.

Its not enough but I hope nothing more then for Qatar to be drawn in the group of death and lose every game, crashing out.

2010,14,18 and 22 world cups all have problems but not the 06? Wonder why you failed to mention it🤔
England created football but we cant host it as we refuse to pay the bribes!

Bet they will still play the games though.

They should all speak out at the same time, instead of in secret if they really wanted to go home.

They should start the games with a moment of silence.

I was surprised Qatar was ever considered let alone chosen to host an event such as the World Cup.
Any player who participates is a part of the problem. Any fan who watches is a part of the problem. But they’ll watch. Even the nfl was boycotted for a whole 8 seconds

Progression and success will come at any expense for the rich and powerful.
On reddit (german part) a Quatari who had to flee (he went to germany) bc he opposed the slavery of foreign workers in Quatar is doing an AMA right now. He is unhappy in germany and seems to not have undeerstood yet why leftists don’t like what he has to say. Anyways, I tried to tell him to be wary of extremists in germany, BEFORE that he himself wrote that he didn’t want to go to france or britain bc of extremists that might target him, all I did was tell him that it might happen in germany too ( I even explicitly wrote it was less likely) and that he would likely be safer and get more people to listen to him in some other countries – just for that I got banned from his AMA and a mob formed accusing ME of being an islamic extremist, that wants to hunt him down….

Another thing that has been going on for years that will never get justice. We are all willing to ignore this just because it may affect us being entertained.

HBO’s Real Sports did a report on the Qatar World Cup construction 2-3 years ago that was eye opening and gut churning. Qatar has not only ‘stacked the deck’ in order to host the ’22 Cup but they have also been known to pay athletes and give them Qatari citizenship in order to win medals/ titles/ championships so that the country is glorified.
Bonnie Hopkins
Heartbreaking that this is still going on. Can’t believe that these atrocities are still happening and I am horrified one of the richest sport in the world is even in the slightest bit condoning or supporting this is criminal! Overpaid footballers to people being dehumanised disgusting! This event should be relocated or boycotted!
blame the people who decided to host these event in 3rd world countries with corrupt governments

In the United States, a work visa is tied to an employer, much like the Kafala system, and abuses have been rampant there as well. We all need to treat the desperate and working more humanely.
Elizabeth Moore
So we all should boycott the world cup, dont watch it.
I used to live in the UAE it’s was a very nice luxurious place for most people and had a relatively low cost of living for luxuries but the Labors there make less than $2 a day and try to provide for their families it’s honestly sad because the government gives so many more rights to locals and easy good paying jobs to their locals but can’t even pay labors enough for a meal.

This is unbelievable

For 6,500 dead workers this better be the BEST WORLD CUP EVER. At least better than the last world cup.

we should just ban world cup permanent, and imprison all of their management permanently as well

“We’ve been treated unfairly” – The most ironic statement right there folks.

What are the main sponsors of these event ? We all know them. They deserve being boycotted as well.

An organisation of German soccer fans is asking for a boycott of this event. Another call is not for a boycott but for pressure on Qatar to improve labour conditions. But on the moment not much seems to be happening.

FIFA is corrupt and the whole system needs to be shut down.
Boycott the game on 2022… 6500 deaths working as a slave… that’s inhumane….

If I was running the teams I would pull out of the World Cup and boycott if no one shows up they loose
Sponsors should remove their names from this very strange world cup, and countries should not participate in it.

The vast majority of humans are slaves. The only difference are the conditions.
Y’all so there’s this sort of urban legend but many say it’s not. When huge monuments like these are made and many deaths occur supposedly these deaths are like an offering of blood ,sort of like a human sacrifice in order to keep the building standing for a longer time and so it doesn’t bring bad luck to the owners. There’s many videos out there where people tell their stories and even in the comments of these videos. I’ve heard it happens a lot in latin america and in some other places around the world ….could this be the same thing happening ?? Who knows…
Leah Tequila
It’s up to the players to say NOPE we won’t be playing there.

It is inhumane and outright disgusting to see how many workers have been exploited, dead and crippled for a corrupt world cup that was illegally granted by corrupt FIFA authorities to a bunch of Blood thirsty Quatari who do not give a damn about human life…I am boycotting this KRAP !!

Thanks for letting this type of news out to the public. Hope many people will see this atrocities done to others that don’t have a voice. Sad but true, Katar just want to make a name to themselves in the world. Katar is a corrupt dump FIFA country. FIFA is getting corrupt more and more every decade. Is just a pure money making business. Only the ones on top get more richer every year.

6 Qatar: World Cup 2022 forced labour

Back to menu       IMPORTANT CONTENT

31 mrt. 2016

Migrant workers building Khalifa International Stadium in Doha for the 2022 World Cup have suffered systematic abuses, in some cases forced labour, Amnesty International reveals in a new report.
The report, “The ugly side of the beautiful game: Labour exploitation on a Qatar 2022 World Cup venue”, blasts FIFA’s shocking indifference to appalling treatment of migrant workers. The number of people working on World Cup sites is set to surge almost ten-fold to around 36,000 in the next two years.
How do FIFA officials sleep at night? Besides on a huge pile of Qatar money, I mean.

8 Should Qatar Be Stripped Of The World Cup?

Back to menu

8 jun. 2015

Slaves to the Beautiful Game: Following the corruption scandal and in light of the horrific conditions of its preparation, is it time to strip Qatar of the football world cup?

The scandal surrounding FIFA corruption has focused fresh attention on migrant workers who have died building stadiums for the 2022 World Cup. This report reveals the shocking conditions endured by workers.

The lead up to the World Cup has been enshrouded in scandal at every turn. With reports that over 1200 have died in Qatar already, the reality of the World Cup for those building the stadiums is far from glamorous. “They live in squalor… They’re owned by another individual, lock, stock and barrel – that’s slavery”, says Sharan Burrow, head of the International Trade Union Confederation. Burrow takes ABC on a tour of a hostel of Nepalese migrants, who work six days a week for 12 hours a day, with no paid overtime. “They just send you back when they decide you’ve finished”, explains one worker. Under the Kafala system in Qatar, workers need permission from their employers before they can leave the country. “The workers here can be physically and verbally abused… they can be stuck in detention centres or they can be kicked back home”, says Mustafa Qadri from Amnesty International. Even footballer Abdes Ouaddou was a victim of Kafala. After being hired to play in the Qatari league, he was denied an exit visa. Expressing his outrage, Abdes says: “How can such a prestigious, popular competition take place in a country that doesn’t respect human rights or the law?”

Won’t be attending, watching, or following the 2022 Qatar World Cup. I’ll be boycotting any companies that align themselves with it, and I’d suggest anyone else who cares do the same and (more importantly) let the companies broadcasting and advertising know how you’ll be voting with your wallet and tuning out. Punish FIFA and punish its corporate sponsors. This is EXACTLY the type of inhumanity we’re told international sport combats, but obviously that’s not happening here.
tarun kumar
one of the best and true reporting journalism at best but can the venue get changed after finalising
the players have the power here. boycott and refuse to go and the tournament will fall. I couldnt agree will Bill Mason more.
Nilo Rodriguez
Four years later and the controversies surrounding Qatar and Fifa keep accumulating. Yet, nothing is being done. World Cup preparations are still going and not stopping.

Qatar is in no way a country that should be rewarded with the World Cup I hope Western European countries will boycott this circus or at least government officials boycott this minuscule kingdom.

The main reason is FIFA is corrupt that’s why Qatar hosting world cup. They are expolating cheap labour. They are died everyday.

Irish Gamer
”empty stadiums” 2020: Am I a joke to you?
Solution: Just host it in England, perfect country that LOVES football. Beautiful stadiums like Anfield, Old Trafford, Wembley, Emirates, Etihad, White Hart Lane, Goodison Park, Villa Park, St. James Park, Stamford Bridge, London Stadium, Celtic Park. So many beautiful stadiums to be hosted at, and they chose Qatar

Rest in peace to all the brothers and sisters who lost their lives while constructing Qatar. I will never forgive them for those atrocities. Most of the times I travel abroad I always meet a migrant labourer who is returning to India scared and worried, saying they will never return again.

10 Company cancels World Cup contract after migrant workers’ deaths on construction sites | DW News

12 mrt. 2021

Dutch Company ‘Hendriks Gras’ has canceled its deal for the upcoming World Cup in Qatar. That’s following media reports that more than 6,500 migrant workers have died on construction sites. Supplying the grass for the World Cup pitch is usually a dream job for busin esses in the turf industry.

So playing football in such a Stadium is like playing on a graveyard?

imagine using this money to build hospitals, schools and housing instead of building more sport stadiums
Ozeh Tdz
World Cup filled with blood. The number of deaths is beyond belief, even if cut one zero out of this figure. No to racism. No to Qatar.
Nepal receives 2 dead bodies everyday from the gulf. These stadium are built on the graveyard of the extreme poor south asians. The cries of the mother, wives and children of these families that I have seen crying hugging the red plywood coffins, plays loudly on my ear everytime I hear any news on these topics. Makes me sad everytime

11 Should Qatar Host The FIFA World Cup?

Should Qatar Host The World Cup? – The reality of abuse and exploitation for Qatar’s migrant workforce.

Discover the Hidden Brutality Of Qatar’s FIFA World Cup Preparations :

“We have been here for two months […] for two months we haven’t been given beds.” Such is life for a migrant worker. Lured to Qatar by the promise of good salaries and regular trips home – they have their passports confiscated on arrival, and their wages slashed. Some work seven days a week, fifteen hours a day, returning home to overcrowded slums where even stray animals struggle to survive.

The 2022 World Cup in Qatar will cost the country $200 billion, and for the contractors charged with making it happen – finance is all that matters. “They don’t care how many die, only how much they get” claims one insider.

Yet despite the appalling conditions, some are better off in Qatar than back home. “This is our life. In my country there is no work. Too much corruption. No money, no work.”

The 2022 World Cup will be very particular. It will take place in winter and…in Qatar! A country that has never hosted the World Cup before. But above all, the allocation process for the 2022 Qatar World Cup was the result of an extremely corrupt system. On top of this, Qatar is regularly accused of not respecting human rights, especially regarding foreign workers. So should we go to Qatar? Should we follow this World Cup on TV or boycott it?

Qatar’s World Cup Slaves: The devastating truth about Qatar’s world cup bid.


In Qatar, 4000 workers will die to put on the 2022 Football World Cup. This staggering figure indicates the slave-like conditions the builders of football’s most expensive construction project are enduring. 

Workers won’t speak out for fear of being fired, but for some, hopelessness outweighs the fear. Qatari labourers building for the 2022 World Cup are forced into long hours on the side of roads or inside factories in the sweltering heat. Their living situations are just as trying: “We have been here for 2 months. And for 2 months we haven’t been given beds.” These workers entered into pseudo slavery due the loans they took to travel that they can’t afford to pay back, as the hope of the income they were promised was a lie. They can’t return home, and if they’re sick “the company cut their salary for going to the hospital”. Take an inside look at the conditions of these impoverished and undervalued workers, who risk overworking to the point of death for fear of unemployment.
