‘Conspiracy of silence’ surrounds World Cup construction in Qatar

The Irish Times

The International Trade Union Confederation has accused the Irish Government and others of a “conspiracy of silence” with regard to World Cup 2022 hosts Qatar, which it calls a “slave state” running an “apartheid” labour market.

ITUC general secretary Sharan Burrow has dismissed assurances from Qatar that conditions for hundreds of thousands of migrant workers in the Gulf state have improved and argues that “nothing has changed on the ground” in the “richest country in the world”.
