The 2022 World Cup in Qatar is more than eight years away, but the human costs of preparing for the event are already piling up.
Qatar is expect to spend $100 billion on new infrastructure in the lead-up to the World Cup, and it’s been importing millions of much-needed migrant workers to do the construction. Most of these workers are from developing regions of South Asia — Nepal, India, Bangladesh, etc. — and they go to Doha in the hopes of a better life. Instead, what they find is akin to “modern-day slavery.”
Though the Qatar World Cup committee has denied human rights abuses, emerging reports indicate flagrant disregard for human life. Plus, it’s already on track to be the deadliest sporting event in history, taking the title from the previous record-holder: the 2014 Sochi Olympics.
Qatar shouldn’t only be stripped of the World Cup due to bribery and scandal, but also due to the many human rights violations that have occurred upon it’s migrant workers…modern-day slaves through Qatar’s kafala employment system.
do you think inflation made steve cry?
Abolish this very system that enslaving every human on this planet while fat pigs are monetizing everything and putting numbers on computer and call it “money or debt”.
Always reblog to show the comparison between the white collar crime & crime and their consequences.
By far the white collar crime is more sinister in a sense of how many people are affected by their “scheme” using their a bag of fucking tricks as thousands of people’s life savings turned to the ashes
Child labor is common on tobacco farms in the United States, where children are exposed to nicotine, toxic pesticides, and other dangers. Child tobacco workers often get sick with vomiting, nausea, headaches, and dizziness while working, all symptoms consistent with acute nicotine poisoning. Many work 50 to 60 hours a week without overtime pay, often in extreme heat. They may be exposed to pesticides that are known neurotoxins. Many also use dangerous tools and machinery, lift heavy loads, and climb to perilous heights to hang tobacco for drying. The largest tobacco companies in the world purchase tobacco grown in the US to make popular cigarette brands like Marlboro, Newport, Camel, Pall Mall and others. These companies can’t legally sell cigarettes to children, but they are profiting from child labor. US law also fails these children, by allowing them to work at much younger ages, for longer hours, and under more hazardous conditions than children working in all other sectors. Children as young as 12 can work legally on tobacco farms and at even younger ages on small farms.
PLEASE, DON’T TURN A BLIND EYE ANY LONGER
I’m sorry if this “bothers” you but it really needs to be said. Look at the labels before you buy. These companies don’t deserve your business
Sadly no one here will even pay attention to this. More people will pay attention to the stupid things Justin bieber does or the stuff that whore kim kardashian says..
honestly the beagle one hits me the hardest. one of my very best friends is a beagle and he the is the sweetest, most compassionate being i know.
i read an article about why beagles are chosen to testing and its because they are one of the most docile and forgiving animals, and that makes me so sad because its so true.
I fucking hate animal testing. I just wish the world wasn’t so cruel to such beautiful creatures.
The only way to stop this is to stop them, like a group of guys raping a young girl sometimes u just try and stop them except the group of guys is about 500k elite banking families and royal families and their not raping a girl their raping hundreds of millions of girl and boy mentally physically emotionally and their experimenting on them with more things than you would ever try to study in a lifetime to believe. We need to stop them and redefine civilization.
"Statistics show that 1 in 4 women in the US is a victim of domestic violence, those numbers jump to 1 in 2 if they are married to a cop.
Law Enforcement officers beat their significant other at nearly double the national average. Several studies, according to Diane Wetendorf, author of Police Domestic Violence: Handbook for Victims, indicate that women suffer domestic abuse in at least 40 percent of police officer families. For American women overall, the figure is 25 percent, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
On April 15th, more than 230 girls were kidnapped from their school in Nigeria. Join the global call. Demand their unconditional release. http://wefb.it/TYwPy9 #BringBackOurGirls
this is heartbreaking and I don’t think it’s receiving enough attention
In 1981, Irish Republican Army volunteers went on hunger strike to protest the refusal of the British government to recognize their political status. Rather than concede to the obviousness of the political nature of their incarceration. Thatcher let 10 men starve to death, including Bobby Sands, who would come symbolize fearless resistance to British imperialism.
For those who think very lightly of their incredibly struggling challenge against British empire.
Then please do me a favor and watch the movie called “HUNGER”

Long Beach police were pursuing a man fleeing from a Target Store security guard for a “a crime allegedly committed at the store,” the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said late Sunday.
When deputies arrived to help security officers locked in a struggle with the man, he pulled out a large pair of scissors, according to a department statement.
The man then fled to his vehicle and led the police on a chase which ended at the 1800 block of East Ocean Boulevard.
The department claimed that he was refusing commands to exit his vehicle and allegedly got out of his car with a “large wooden stick.”
When the man began to flea police they initially fired a stun bag at him, which showed to have no effect.
At this point the Long Beach Police claim to have “encountered the man” and shot him. However the video shows no such encounter. The man is completely isolated and it appears that he was shot in cold blood, in the back.
