December 2022 – As the FIFA World Cup is played out Qatar, BWI and its trade union affiliates are calling for a global wave of support for migrant workers amongst activists, football fans, players, sports communities and the general public.
In a statement backing the #WithMigrantWorkers campaign, it was pointed out that “migrant workers have largely been responsible for the massive stadium and other related infrastructure enabling both football players and fans to enjoy the ‘beautiful game.’ Without them, the dream of a 2022 World Cup in Qatar would not have been possible.”
Now, with the world’s eyes on the country, it is important to establish a legacy of decent work in Qatar.
There are various ways to show support, including via social media networks, and wearing red ribbons. Click here to find out more about the campaign.
