After The Death of 1200 Migrant Workers, Qatar Will Not Host 2022 World Cup “Because of The Scorching Temperatures”

The 2022 World Cup will not be held in Qatar because of the scorching temperatures in the Middle East country, FIFA Executive Committee member Theo Zwanziger said on Monday.

I personally think that in the end the 2022 World Cup will not take place in Qatar," the German told Sport Bild on Monday.

Medics say that they cannot accept responsibility with a World Cup taking place under these conditions," the former German football (DFB) chief, who is now a member of the world football’s governing body FIFA that awarded the tournament to Qatar in 2010.

A report from the International Trade Union Confederation says 1,200 migrant workers from India and Nepal have died in Qatar since the country was awarded the 2022 World Cup.

The ITUC estimates that 4,000 migrant workers would have died by the time the first game is played in 2022.

Workers at the Lusail City construction site told the Guardian that their bosses have withheld pay, forced them to work in 122-degree heat with no rest for food, and confiscated their passports to make sure they don’t leave the country.

Combine those complaints with squalid living conditions, and some are calling the situation in Qatar "modern day slavery."

doochecanoe said: I can understand why you'd be vegetarian, but I can't understand veganism ((I'm not trying to be a douche)) I mean milk and eggs ((for example))?? aren't they produced by the animal naturally anyway?? I mean why stop using it when it's perfectly natural for the animal to produce it? surely there's no harm in milking a cow or collecting an egg from a chicken? ((I'm just curious that's all as I'm still not 100% sure what being 'vegan' is))

avianawareness:

Honey bun, they’re not natural after factory farms get involved which is 99% of all farms.

Moo’s are artificially inseminated to make baby cows and produce milk. Just like humans, moos don’t typically produce milk unless pregnant. That milk is suppose to feed their baby cows in order to make them into huge adult cows. We are grown adults drinking breast milk from another mammal. They’re also injected full of growth hormones and antibiotics, of which we ingest.image

That^ doesn’t look much natural to me and this is a tame picture compare to some of the ones you’ll come across on the internet.  

Chickens, my beloved chickens. They’re abused, stuck in battery cages, beaks cut off, genetically engineered to produce tons of meat, so much that some can’t stand under the weight.

The egg industry is HORRIBLE. Male baby chicks are a bi-product. They separated males and females. The females go into horrible living conditions, and the males are stomped on, suffocated, and ground up alive because they’re useless.

You don’t think of these things at first, but when you start to dig, you wake up to how wrong it is.

Police shoot teenage special-needs girl within 20 seconds of arriving to ‘help’

On June 3rd, 2014, the Serrano family was having difficulty with a young female family member who suffers from a mental illness and depression. Yanira Serrano-Garcia, 18, had apparently gone off of her medication and became agitated and hard to control.
“[Yanira] wanted to be normal. She wanted to stop taking her medication, and I get it. Sometimes when my feet hurt I just want to be normal. I don’t want to take pills. I get her…all we want is justice,” said a friend of Yanira’s during a community march. 
“Sadly, they mistook her for something she didn’t do, and a cop decided to get his gun out when he could have gotten out his taser, his pepper spray,” she said.
“She has special needs and we just want answers,” said Yanira’s brother, Tiny Serrano. “Who are we supposed to call now when we need help when who is supposed to help us is killing our kids?”


I feel like I reblog this kind of stuff every single day… Same story, different names. And police always use the same fucking excuses because they’re trained in how to loophole the law.
