Spain: ‘Red card to the World Cup!’ – Dozens protest Qatar’s ‘World Cup of shame’ in Madrid

Dozens of activists staged a protest in Madrid against the tenure of the World Cup in Qatar on Saturday.

Protesters holding banners, red cards and signs criticised the handling of migrant workers, calling the tournament a “World Cup of shame”.

“The World Cup in Qatar is taking place in a country where they don’t respect human rights, red card for this World Cup,” one protester told the crowd.

World Cup 2022 will kick off on November 20, after reports of continued mistreatment of migrant workers who built the stadium infrastructure, as well as Qatar’s stance on LGBT+ rights, where homosexuality remains illegal.
