Qatar, the foreign workers of the 2022 World Cup rebelled against the conditions of slavery imposed by the Al Thani emirs’ regime.

A video showing workers on Qatar’s 2022 World Cup stadium project striking on Sunday has been circulated widely on social media.

The video shows a large crowd of people in high-visibility jackets gathering on a road.

Dubai’s Deputy Chairman of Police and Public Security, Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, tweeted for “God to deliver Qatar from these scandals”.

In April, migrant workers took to the streets to denounce overdue wages, oppressive government policies and inhuman working conditions.

As many as 28,000 people building seven new stadiums for the 2022 Fifa World Cup in Qatar earn the equivalent of only $1.04 (Dh3.82) an hour, an investigation revealed in May.

In February, Amnesty International said Qatar was running out of time to stamp out widespread abuse of tens of thousands of migrant workers before hosting the World Cup.

“Time is running out if the Qatari authorities want to deliver a legacy we can all cheer, namely a labour system that ends the abuse and misery inflicted on so many migrant workers every day,” Amnesty’s Stephen Cockburn said.
