The 32 clubs of the Swedish football league join an appeal of the human rights organization Amnesty International, which demands better conditions for migrant work migrants in Qatar. This was announced by the Swedish Elite Football Association.
The call is aimed at the Football World Association FIFA: The FIFA has a clear responsibility to act when workers who contribute to WM projects are exposed to work-related violations. Therefore, Amnesty shows the FIFA the red card and calls on her Involving influence to protect all the work immigrants that make the World Cup, says the organization s Swedish website.
In Sweden alone, more than 20,000 people had signed the call until Thursday afternoon, including the managers of football clubs.
We can not affect where the World Cup finals is held, said Jens Andersson, chairman of the Swedish elite football, according to a message. But we can exercise pressure and show FIFA that we have already considered the decision for unacceptable when it has been taken, and that FIFA has therefore to take more responsibility for the situation on site.
