Netherlands joins Germany, Norway in Qatar World Cup protest
Protesting about Qatar’s exploitation of migrant workers, the Dutch men’s football team on Saturday wore T-shirts reading “Football supports change” in an apparent statement against Qatar’s human rights track record ahead of the 2022 World Cup.
As early as 2010, the Royal Netherlands Football Association (KNVB) expressed its opposition to Qatar holding the World Cup. Conditions for migrant workers in the country are terrible.
Kudos to these teams who are not afraid to speak out the truth and speak out to change and stop the abuse on the migrant workers.
