Proudly Supporting The Human Rights Abuses Of World Cup 2022

May 27, 2015
In December of 2010, the FIFA executive committee announced that Qatar would host the World Cup in 2022. Since then, nearly 4,000 migrant workers have lost their lives while constructing stadiums in the country. Although FIFA has reportedly leaned on Qatar's government to improve working conditions, well, John Oliver highlighted the efficacy of that particular organization's humanitarian efforts last year (By: Thestar).

These powerful “anti-advertisements” are circulating online to call attention to alleged migrant worker abuses in Qatar, host country of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
The mock ads seek to pressure the tournament’s sponsors to pull out of the games, and come as calls for labour reform in Qatar are mounting.
