Subject: 4,000 slaves dying for one World Cup


Since 2012, roughly 900 workers have already been killed working on infrastructure for Qatar's World Cup — and experts believe 4,000 will be dead by 2022.

Dear Liz Marshall,
Qatar is set to host the Football World Cup in 2022 — and by that time, at least 4,000 migrant workers will have died to make the city ready.

Since 2012, roughly 900 workers have already been killed working on infrastructure for the World Cup, astronomically more than have died in any construction project in recent history.

It's easy to see why. Workers describe forced labor in 50C (122F) heat, employers who steal their salaries and passports, and being shuttled like cattle in overcrowded, unsanitary conditions without access to water or food.

And throughout these rampant abuses, FIFA has been silent as the grave.

It's time for the organizer to take a stand. Join us in calling on FIFA to send a clear message to Qatar: We will not allow the 2022 World Cup to be built on the backs of dying slaves.
PETITION TO FIFA: Speak out against the atrocious labor abuses and needless deaths of migrant workers in Qatar, and call on the World Cup organizers there to improve conditions and compensate the victims' families as they move the Cup location elsewhere.
