Boycott Qatar's 2022 FIFA World Cup of Slavery

Boycott Qatar's 2022 FIFA World Cup of Slavery. Slavery is building the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, and the Western world is profiting from this slavery. Qatar's 2022 FIFA World Cup is killing thousands of fathers, husbands, and families. @WorldCupSlavery What You Can Do 1)      Electronically sign this petition to boycott the 2022 World Cup. One click to stop slavery.  2)      Make this petition viral. Share, Tweet, Snap, Insta or e-mail this petition to anyone and everyone. Also, ask influential bloggers/newspapers, personal connections, and organizations to support this petition. No matter the method, raising awareness helps end this injustice. 3)      Please follow this issue @WorldCupSlavery. Your follow and support makes a difference. 4)      Socially pressure FIFA’s sponsors: VISA, Hyundai/KIA, Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, ADIDAS and Anheuser-Busch InBev. 5)     Promote this petition so more people see and share the message (see the tab on the right of the screen).  Quick Facts PLEASE WATCH! ESPN E60’s documentary illustrates the human rights violations. In preparation to host the 2022 World Cup, Qatar is using slavery to build over 200 billion dollars of infrastructure. Many Western sponsors, construction companies, and businesses will profit from this slavery. Qatar’s World Cup construction is expected to kill over 7,000 workers. FIFA, the Western world, and Qatar are killing 7,000 fathers, sons, and brothers in order to profit off soccer. Qatar is not only killing 7,000 workers, but destroying 7,000 families. The forced laborer’s families cannot withstand the loss of their primary income earner. Often, the families lose their home, starve, or are forced to make inhumane decisions for survival.    The international community has condemned Qatar’s system of slavery. The United Nation’s described Qatar’s kafala system as “slavery-like conditions.” The United States Department of State concluded, “Approximately 94 percent of the country’s workforce is comprised of men and women from South and Southeast Asia, Africa, and the Middle East who voluntarily come to work as low- and semiskilled workers, primarily in construction, oil and gas, service, transportation, and domestic work, but some subsequently face forced labor.” Solution Our social pressure could end Qatar’s slavery. This petition seeks to 1) Force FIFA to change the 2022 World Cup hosting country, and 2) Force Qatar to abolish its migrant work sponsorship program (kafala system). Collectively, this petition will apply social pressure to the sponsors of the 2022 World Cup. Driven by that social pressure, sponsors will threaten to end sponsorship to avoid negative publicity and financial losses. Under the threat of losing sponsors and public support, FIFA will demand changes from the Qatari government.     Summary of Qatar’s Slavery Qatar regulates their migrant workforce through a work sponsorship program called a kafala system. Qatar’s kafala system entraps the immigrants with false promises of adequate wages, only to significantly reduce their pay upon their arrival to Qatar. If the forced laborer protests, Qatar unlawfully detains insubordinate employees, allows employers to withhold pay, and enables employers to confiscate passports to prevent the forced laborers to return home. With this disproportional leverage over the laborers, employers force laborers into dangerous working conditions. Employers force immigrant workers to labor for 16 hours in 120° heat. The forced laborers sleep 10 to 14 people in a very small room with no running water or sewage system. Under these dangerous working and living conditions, experts estimate that Qatar’s system of slavery will kill upwards of 7,000 workers before the start of the 2022 World Cup. Qatar’s kafala system not only harms the forced laborers, but destroys the forced laborers’ families as well. If the forced laborers die, their families lose their primary income earner. If the laborers survive, employers reduce pay, delay pay, or withhold pay completely. The forced laborers’ families depend on this income. Without this income, wives, grandparents, and children living in the forced laborers’ origin country lose homes, starve, and struggle to survive. Qatar’s kafala system violates several human rights laws. The United Nation’s Human Rights Officer described Qatar’s kafala system as leading to “slavery-like conditions.” The United Nations Convention Against Torture found that “Qatar continues to be a destination country for men and women subjected to forced labour and forced prostitution.” The Convention Against Torture also found “… reports of widespread torture or ill-treatment and abuse of migrant workers, in particular those under the sponsorship system (kafeel).” Qatar’s exploitation of migrant workers will only increase with the 2022 World Cup preparations. To prepare for the 2022 World Cup, Qatar plans to spend over 200 billion dollars in infrastructure through 2030. Because of Qatar’s construction needs, Qatar has recruited a significant number of migrant workers typically from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, the Philippines, or Sri Lanka. In fact, estimates suggest that the 1.39 million migrant workers in Qatar make up 94% of Qatar’s workforce. Why is this petition urgent? If FIFA’s contractual liabilities in Qatar increase too much, FIFA likely will not terminate their 2022 World Cup contract. Because of contractual obligations, FIFA may be liable for Qatar’s World Cup investments. If FIFA breaks their World Cup contract with Qatar, Qatar could sue to recover their World Cup investments. The longer we wait, the more money Qatar spends on World Cup preparations. Currently, Qatar is estimated to spend over 200 billion on infrastructure and World Cup preparations. That means the longer we wait, the less likely FIFA is to demand reform to Qatar’s kafala system or change the 2022 World Cup location.

ピョンチャン2018冬季Olympicスポンサー契約解除をPyeongChang 2018 Corporate Sponsors-Withdraw Your Sponsorship

ピョンチャン2018冬季Olympicスポンサー契約解除を! Coca Cola, Samsung, LG, TOYOTA, Bridgestone, Atos, Dow, GE, McDonalds, Omega, Panasonic, Procter and Gamble, Visa, Korean Air, Korea Telecom, The North Face: Withdraw your sponsorship! 2018年に韓国で開催予定の【ピョンチャン2018冬季オリンピック】のスポンサー企業に対し、韓国の犬肉猫肉産業撲滅の協力を仰ぐ請願書です。ご協力をお願いいたします。また、この請願書の下方に直接協力要請メッセージを送る情報も記載してありますのでご覧下さい。  ピョンチャン2018冬季オリンピックのスポンサー企業殿 韓国で開催のピョンチャン2018冬季オリンピックのスポンサー契約解除を要請します。 デズモンドTutu司教こう述べています「不正の状況で中立であるならば、あなたは圧制者の側を選びました。」オリンピックのスポンサーである御社には、韓国における罪も無い犬猫に対する虐待をやめるように韓国政府に影響を与える力があります。 韓国では毎年250万匹の犬が電撃死、首吊り、そして殴り殺されています。 多くの韓国人は動物がより苦しめばその肉の旨みは増し、薬効も増すという言い伝えを信じているために、彼らが思いつく限りの最悪な方法により殺されています。猫も同様に、「健康トニック」と呼ばれるスープを作るために何千匹も殺されています。生きたまま熱湯に放り込まれるのです。犬を食べる習慣は韓国全土で受け入れられている訳ではありません。韓国で終戦後に流行りだしたものです。そして欲深い料理店店主と肉取引業者そして肉屋の結託により今日まで続けられているのです。 過去10年間で、韓国の多くの人々は、犬と猫はペットであるとの概念を受け入れています。 しかし、犬肉と猫肉の法律で禁止し、違法であり不正行為であり、不潔な産業を永遠に禁止するように韓国政府を説得せねばなりません。不潔なオリに入れられている犬や猫は、仲間が拷問され殺されるのを目の前で見せつけられている光景にはぞっとします。拷問役の人が「死ぬまでに苦しめば苦しむほど味が良くなる」と言いながら、その言葉通りに、犬を生きたままバラバラに切り刻んだと実際に目で見た人が証言しています。どのような生き物に対してでもこのような行為は断固許されるべきものではありません。経済や政治の争いを乗り越え、社会の人々が精神的に結びつくことができるという事が2012年のオリンピックでわかりました。資源の乏しい小さな国でも、外されることも、取り残される事も無く、才能を発揮するチャンスがありました。 共に参加したボランティアの人々も含め皆が平等に輝くチャンスを与えられました。我々人間同士そしてこの世に生ある全ての生き物に対して理解と同情を示し、声なき者の為に立ち上がる事がどれほど重要かということを世界中の人々はすでに知っています。 正しい行いにより尊敬をされ、さらにはビジネスを構築する事にもなります。今こそ御社のようなトップクラスのブランド企業が「変化」という名の聖火を運ぶ時です。 どうか御社の顧客を尊重して下さい。 表現し難い残虐行為と抑圧を生み出している国を支持しないで下さい。これらの残虐行為を直ちに禁止にする事、それが実行されるまでスポンサー契約を解除する事を強く主張して頂きたいと思います。 敬具 -------------------------------------------------------------------- Short link for this petition: English Petition: 詳細は オリンピック委員会へメッセージを送る 【参考文】以下の英文をコピーしてお使い下さい(韓国では現存する動物保護法が行使されずに未だに犬や猫を虐待、殺害しており、この行為を止めない限り2018年のピョンチャン冬季オリンピックをボイコットするという内容です。) To the International Olympic Committee: I am extremely distressed about the torture and consumption of animal companions in South Korea. Even though the government has established an Animal Protection Law, dogs are still electrocuted, hanged, and beaten to death by farmers and slaughters. Also, dogs and cats are still being tortured and boiled alive for so-called elixirs, which have no medicinal properties except in the minds of gullible customers. Until South Korea ends this appalling suffering, the country’s reputation in the international community will continue to suffer. Its citizens will face shame and embarrassment. And South Korea will continue to be regarded as “third world,” despite its glittering modernization and attempts at globalized thinking. There will be worldwide attempts to boycott “PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics unless the abuse of cats and dogs has finally come to an end. -------------------------------------------------------------------- 韓国オリンピック委員会HP: TOYOTAトヨタ自動車(株)代表取締役社長:豊田章男本社住所:〒471-8571 愛知県豊田市トヨタ町1番地電話番号:0560(28)2121役員一覧SMS: Panasonicパナソニック㈱代表取締役社長:津賀一宏本社住所:〒571-8501 大阪府門真市大字門真1006番地電話番号:06-6908-1121(大代表)ブランドコミュニケーション本部・宣伝・スポンサーシップグループ 企業宣伝センターメール窓口:  Samsung CEO: Kun-Hee Lee Samsung Electronics Building 40th Floor Post Office Box 170, Seochodaero 74-gil 11 , Seocho-gu Seoul, Postal Code 137-965, South Korea 1-800-726-7864 FREE Contact email:;;;;;;;;;;;;;; Homepage: Click for more contact info: LG CEO: Bon-Moo Koo LG Electronics U.S.A., Inc.1000 Sylvan AvenueEnglewood Cliffs, NJ 07632 USAContact Email:; The Coca-Cola Company CEO:  Muhtar Kent P.O.

Save Coke Zero!

Dear Coca Cola, and Citizens of Australia, Not many can say they’ve lived through their nightmare but the other day, I encountered something worse than Freddie Krueger in a sleep clinic. I’d had a few the night before, went to my local pub for a parmi and, still feeling a bit queasy and unable to get back on the sauce, went to order my staple pint of Coke Zero. At this point the bartender (we’ll call him Freddie due to him being the destroyer of dreams) informed me that:      “We’re not serving Coke Zero anymore, but we’ve got this stuff called Coke No Sugar”. My heart stopped, the blood drained from my body and all of a sudden the contents of last night’s shenanigans weren’t sitting well in my stomach. It had begun... Which brings me to this. The discontinuation of Coke Zero is a crime. Imagine breathing without oxygen, swimming without water, starting your day without coffee! These are all equally as ludicrous as taking away the act of – and I quote The Coca Cola Company 2009 – “opening up a can of happiness”. So come on Coca Cola, listen to the people of Australia. We may be Coke addicts, but we’re the good kind. The kind that opens that can and spreads that happiness. Don’t let Freddie start popping up in my local Coles, or at the bowls club or god forbid when I’m watching a game of AFL with a pie in hand and a thirst for something to wash it down with. We get it, Zero means NO SUGAR. No need for a new recipe, no need for a new brand. Let’s end this quickly so we don’t have another Barbecue Shapes fiasco on our hands, okay? #PutYourCokesOut #StandTogetherAustralia Yours Truly, Australia
