World Cup sponsors must tell Qatar to play fair on workers' human rights

The INTO supports the Play Fair Qatar campaign to ensure that the human rights of migrant workers in Qatar for the preparation of the 2022 World Cup are not abused. To date, almost 1,400 World Cup workers have died in Qatar and many more have been injured and are paid as little as 62 cent an hour while some employers withhold wages. The Play Fair Qatar Campaign is making the case to corporate sponsors that corporate social responsibility should apply not just to supply chains, but also to events they are paying for. Members of the public are asked to email the corporate sponsors in solidarity with the workers. Take action here.
