Subject: Slavery at the 'Tower of Football'
Dear MOVIMENTO NACIONAL DE DEFESA,
"We don't know how much they are spending on the World Cup, but we just need our salary."1
- Migrant worker in Qatar waiting over a year to be paid.
Recently a new story of migrant worker abuse in Qatar has hit the headlines. Workers from Nepal, India and Sri Lanka who helped build the luxury offices that host the 2022 World Cup organising committee have been waiting over a year to be paid.2These workers are now trapped in Qatar, as the company they were working for collapsed and they have no paperwork to protect them from imprisonment or to ensure their basic needs are met. They are also unable to leave the country without permission from their employer or the funds required for travel.
While no expense was spared on the building they worked on, the multi-million dollar ‘Tower of Football’, these workers are trapped in poverty and their families become even more indebted as they await their wages.3And this is just a snapshot of the wider exploitation of migrant workers in Qatar, with many more at risk as thousands pour into the country to build the 2022 World Cup infrastructure.
As someone who has already called on FIFA to use its influence to end the exploitation of 2022 World Cup workers, have you now got a moment to watch and share our new film on this scandal?
This short film explains the root causes of modern slavery in Qatar and the wider Middle East, and what we can do about it. With Qatar in the news again, we want to make the most of this opportunity to encourage even more people to join this campaign, which is why your help sharing the film right now is so important.
The Qatar authorities are feeling the heat. A raft of new announcements have been made in recent months including on changes to employment law and working conditions.4 But these developments clearly don’t go far enough and the everyday reality for migrant workers in Qatar is unacceptable. The World Cup organising committee can’t even guarantee the rights of workers at its own offices.
Click to watch and share this film to spread the word about the terrible situation for migrant workers in Qatar -- and call on your friends and family to join us in ending this modern slavery.
Jayde, Mich, Amy, Ryan, Jeremy and the Walk Free Team
P.S. There are many actors that have a responsibility to help end modern slavery in Qatar and we have plans to grow this campaign in the coming months. In the meantime, please share our video to raise awareness of migrant slavery across the Middle East and encourage others to join us in ending it.
