    To add some context to the environment those stadium workers had to deal with: I was deployed there as a Navy Corpsman in a USMC unit back in 2014. The Navy/Marines use a system called the WBGT (Wet Bulb Globe Test) index. When it is over 90, all non-essential activity is prohibited as a severe risk of heat stroke, dehydration, etc. This is known as "Black Flag". Over the summer (we arrived in August), it was Black Flag before the sun even rose, and was often into the low 130s. The heat is exacerbated by the extreme humidity (it was often over 90% humidity when we were there), so your sweat doesn't evaporate, which means your body can't cool off naturally, and you have an increased risk of heat injuries. When that man said it felt like it was raining, that's not an exaggeration. As soon as you left an air-conditioned space, your clothes soaked through with sweat in 5-10 minutes. It felt like what I imagine being in an oven would be like.
    Our commanding officer cancelled a lot of our training, includeing MCMAP (Marine Corps Martial Arts Program). We were finishing up a Brown Belt course, and about to start Black Belt, and we were having heat injuries, even training at 5 a.m. to avoid the heat. In my time in the military I've been to CA, NM, AZ, TX, FL, IL, WA, NC, Guantanamo Bay, Japan, and Qatar (and many more places aside from military service). No place on Earth had weather as miserable as Qatar... it's not even close. It's hard to imagine working outside all day in such a hellscape. I feel for all the workers who had to endure that.

    Sadly the players all backed out of wearing the armbands out of threats from FIFA that they'd get a Yellow Card (get two and it's a red, you get sent off). Former Women's England player Alex Scott who is out there as a presenter/pundit wore it on the pitch during interviews. Legend.

    Thank you sir for highlighting the story of migrant workers. My uncles son died of cardiac arrest working in harsh conditions. Read a horrific story in reputed Nepali newspaper of how they punished Nepali workers if they left and worked in another company because of low salary and harsh living conditions. They would make the workers sit in hot midday sun 45-50 degree Celsius. The Nepali migrant workers would faint. Then they would take the body to shaded place revive them with cold water. After he gained conscious they would put him back to the sun. These people are monsters. I have decided to boycott watching world cup 2022.

      3 commenting-drafts of varying non-linear sizes since past 24 hours of not dissecting but excluding relevant-abstracts to this as-parochial-as-time-constrained "Main Story" coverage and all lost to this stupid symbiosis of this platform's Android app & arguably worse-than-burner phone.

      After subscribing to this "DEclips channel" after semi-banned "India" episode 2 seasons back - I guess given the lack of a single instance of internationally-recognised, "iNcoRrEcT!" map of India increases the possibility of this one-&-only Planet's most-effective botnet-ops in "world master" India's "IT Cell" & their _compadres_ elsewhere - I expect to "unsubscribe" from this "DEclips channel" even as I presume the team must've gone on at least a week-long _hiatus_ and the best-efforts of "Senior News Producer" to put her foot down and not give much of an excuse to mostly-borderline-racist-than-not cowardly commenters with their culture-supremacist bile in transatlantic Anglophone "Big Name" news-outlets like Wall Street-listed family-controlled New York Times( also supported by a _Méxicano_ oligarch), currently world's 3rd-richest oligarch owned "WaPo" - both of them collectively US' "papers of record". And of course, the pinnacle: UK's alleged tax-dodger in "Trust" incorporation with their glorified native-advertising of an “investigation”( in Mr Oliver's own words) stealth-rebranded as themselves instead of previously-transparent so-called "venture philanthropy". 'Cus they know those who would readily-believe the headline in and of itself would barely bother to read the full content, nevermind paying attention to the uszche: Criminally-downplayed caveat by truncating to a single-sentence which challenges the integrity of whole content in and of itself.( Reminds of NYT's award-winning ‘The Caliphate’ podcast-series.

      I plan to "unsubscribe" from this "DEclips channel" within next ~24 hours, at max. After all.. What's the loss of a single DEclips Premium subscriber for the non-transparent digital-monetisation presence by this mammoth. So..

      @UCToiQpu6asYPKq-BV33BAJg 1. I never said it can never be acquired by women having sex with men, but you do agree that there's a less chance of that happening than if it were gay sex? and it would be even less if the women and men were virgins right?
      2. ask the unhinged people who get into fights in stadiums because they don't cheer the same team that day and all they need is a little boost of alcohol to remove all their reasoning.
      3. we never said that gay people have to stop being gay in other countries, we just said to follow our laws when you're here, rather, gay people are allowed in the country, and they're allowed in stadiums too, the law only says that you're not allowed to hold the pride flag, that's it, if you dislike the laws of muslim countries that means you're saying that they need to be changed to accommodate gay people, guess people asking muslims to change their laws is true after all even though you just said that they weren't asking them to do it.
      also no, we have nothing against gay people, they can be gay as much as they want to, just follow our laws when you're here, is it that hard to do?
      4. oh, I will, thank you for informing me, I'll make sure to check it out, but be sure that there's a chance that all of the stuff that happened in india might've been a ploy by the brits to colonize it, but of course you wouldn't consider that as a possible cause would you?
      oh yes, rivers of wine, amazing isn't it, just for following god we'll get rewarded by stuff that weren't allowed, I wonder what wine tastes like, maybe if Allah allows me to go to Jannah I'll find out, did you know that muslims in the past used to drink wine and alcohol? there are verses in the quran that says that alcohol was allowed but discouraged, then forbidden, and lastly strongly forbidden. I wonder why god would forbid something that makes you less reasonable when you're interacting with people
      5. "people never oppress your own people like afghanistan, yemen etc" I did not understand exactly what you meant by that, but if you're talking about how the middle east and north africa isn't as oppressed as those oppressed countries devalues us, that would be hypocritical of you (you're only allowed to talk about oppression if you're more oppressed than these countries) make it sound like it's okay to be oppressed as long as you're not worse than these select countries, but I might've understood what you said wrong, if that's the case, I'd ask you to explain what you meant
      "just like indians blaming the british after 70 years, just like blacks blaming whites right now, just like africa blaming the west right now" both Indians and black people aren't blaming people of today, they're blaming people of the past, yeah sure, some of them will blame people of today, but most of them won't, but in regards to africa, the west is oppressing them right now, Libya had a civil war against their oppressor ruler only for the U.S to use that opportunity to weaken them, and now the media only talks about how stupid libyans are for going against their leader, when they have no idea how many crimes he committed against his own people to rise to the top.
      and you're still not denying the fact that the west is controlling the flow of information and by extension the world, we might be denying stuff that happened in the past where we weren't alive because of our lack of knowledge, but you're not denying stuff that you can see in your everyday life because of how the media controls what they want you to see, remember that american reporter that died in Palestine? yeah the west made it seem like she died because of a stray bullet, yet most people who were there know that it was an assassination by the Israeli gov because she was exposing them
      I never denied our wrongs, if someone is in position of power they might use that power to do bad things, I only said that you're blaming a country for doing stuff other countries did before while not blaming the other countries for doing them, and you're angry that they uphold their laws in their countries while wanting us to follow your beliefs and ideals on what human rights should be, if that's not hypocrisy I genuinely do not know what is.
      "oppressing your people riding lamborghinis mercedes ferrari polic cars, yes we're making life soooooo miserable for you. lol" this is someone who averts their eyes from the root, why do you think the middle east and north africa are forced to sell their oil reserves using the west's currency? our oppressor learder Al-gaddafi apparently had a plan to introduce a new currency only used for oil trades, yeah, it makes sense now why the U.S decided to help Libya, it wasn't because Al-gaddafi was an oppressor, it was because he threatened their position as the global superpower and their currency as the main currency to trade oil with. please do your research the same why you're asking me to do mine, look it up, look up about all of islam, you'll find stuff that were hidden from your sights by your media which hates islam, just do it, but I doubt you would.
      sorry I made this long, there's a lot to talk about and this isn't just a normal chat, but instead replies on comments, hope you reread it multiple times before you actually make a new argument while ignoring half of what I said, and if you want actual answers from professionals do ask the scholars and maybe you'll prove them wrong.

      @Spider-ling after reading and skimming through articles on the islam-hindu conflict, I found 2 main things
      1. The brits may have planted the seeds of conflict between them in an attempt to colonize them
      2. Muslims and Hindus were driven naturally to conflict
      Now keep in mind that most of both of these Muslims and Hindus are from india, so you can't really say it's an invasion and instead just a civil conflict happened between them, if you know more about this topic than what I read, please enlighten me, I'm willing to learn.

    • Basically A ZeR0

      @Spider-ling 1. Alcohol was only banned in stadiums, it wasn't banned in the rest of the country, yet you chose to ignore that fact and say they banned it completely, not required, yet they are the rules and laws of their country, if we follow your logic that islam is man made, then why are people fighting laws of another country instead of just following them?
      2. Gay people weren't banned from watching the game or visiting qatar, they were only forbidden from doing sexual activities and holding the gay flag, these also follow the first point, follow the laws of the country you're in.
      3. They do actually, people went to qatar and were talking about how their laws should be changed to allow sexual activities, the video itself criticizes their laws on gay sexual activities, but let's ignore that fact too, and instead go to the west where in some places I admit, they're forced to remove hijab, not allowed to wear muslim clothing, and discriminated against for the sole reason of being muslims, but only the gay people matter right?
      It's not about equal rights, it's about following the laws if the country you're in, that's it.
      4. I'll assume that you only read the "what genocide" part and decided to ignore the rest of what I said, if you're talking about the Islamic fatah, which was centuries ago, then know damn well that muslims only used force when they were fought back by force, all the countries that didn't fight them by force weren't invaded, in fact, when Prophet Mohammed went to Madina with Abu-Buker, and asked them to follow Islam which they did, he allowed all the non-muslims to live alongside them, with the only rule is that they wouldn't betray him, guess what they did? And guess who lost the fight?
      But if you're talking about genocide that's happening today, then I'm very sorry to say but I genuinely have no idea what you're talking about, same with the hindu stuff, I'll make sure to read about it when I get some free time later.
      5. All the diseases that can be acquired from doing it? This also applies to sex before marriage and saving ones virginity, in the Quran its written that god created man and women to procreate, you don't need to be a scientist to understand why all living beings are created male and female.
      6. The reason muslims go to the west is because they're forced to, not in a sense of they're held at gunpoint, but rather, the west controlling the world and making it harder and harder for people to living in the muslim countries, have you checked them out? People here struggle to make enough to buy all the new technology and items needed so they wouldn't fall behind, living in the west gives them a higher chance to get a better living condition.
      Being a blind hypocrite huh, I wonder why you don't see the west being hypocritical yet you see us muslims as such for calling your hypocrisy
      I can also say that your way of life is nothing more than brainwashing, which is why you have no idea how good Islam is and only seeing the bad in it from your perspective because of how the media portrays muslims, but I digress.
      Oh that's good to hear, I just hope that you too do your research the same why I'm going to do on the hindus that you mentioned.

      @Spider-ling sorry but, I don't think "the whole world condemned the U.S" did anything against their destiny manifestation and how they're forcing the whole world to pick up their ideals and beliefs, why are they forcing us, people of Islam, to allow gay sexual activity when they know that it's 100% forbidden by the Quran? Why do they ask us to change our religion to suit their wants when they would force the muslims there to follow their laws? Did you know that some work companies there bans the Hijab? A piece of clothing that covers the woman head, is banned, and for what? Just to force muslim women to adhere to their "diversity" by forcing them to be the same as them(Americans), tell me, why are they forcing us to change our laws and religion? Is it really for human rights? Or is it just because most of them are islamophobs. And don't get me wrong, I never said everyone who's speaking and calling out qatar for their mistreatment of immigrant workers, I think they're very bad and I hope they compensate all the workers they mistreated, but it was never about the bad things qatar did, it was always about the Islamic culture and laws, have you any idea how many Atheists wants us to change our religion? When it was never changed since the dawn of time? Christianity does not allow gay sex yet some Christians are becoming gay, does it sound to you like it'll be a religion from god if we change 1 word?
      What genocide? The Islamic fatah? Where the muslims go to another country to share their religion with peace for people who want to follow it? Yet they get fought back with violence so they're forced to fight islam was and still always the religion of peace, that's the meaning of the word islam, yet from the beginning, Atheists always fought islam by force, so you're telling me that when they were forced to fight to spread the word of god, they're evil? Yeah right
      Also the U.K citizens are living in a country mostly built by modern day slavery, yet they chose to speak up about it now? Yeah sure.
      It is Islamophobia from the media yes, maybe you, or other people want qatar to be held responsible for the worker situation, and I agree, the rest of the media doesn't, it was a methodical attack on islam as a whole? They go to a muslim country and they expect we follow their laws in our countries? A man got angry because he was asked to follow the rules and remove the gay flag?
      A woman felt weird because she was asked to go through a women only gate? They got angry because they're not allowed to drink in stadium? They got angry because gay activities were banned? They also got mad for women rights there? Where a woman can do anything as long as she gets permission from her guardian?
      Tell me how is that not an attack on islam
      Also sorry about the hindus of kashmir thing, I don't know about it, so I can't really give you an argument about
      And lastly why did you not ask a scholar yet about all your questions about islam? You afraid they'll open your mind and realize how stupid u were? Or do you not have the confidence to shit talk somone who knows more than enough about their religion, and instead you're here talking about how only qatar is now the worst country in existence when the rest of the world already did those
      Hope u have a good day spiderling
      And stop being a hypocrite, before you speak about Islam, be sure you study it carefully, or don't talk at all, I'm not sure if you know but, Atheists caused more deaths in the last century than muslims, and that says a lot about how bad u wants us to shut up about your hypocritical thinking

However, it is tru that the temp reaches over 50°C plus the humidity.

I doubt you'd have a reason but, check out all those atheists who visted qatar for the world cup, they say good things about islam, something the western media never does, your way of using"cool bro" and "knock yourself out bro" after carefully choosing and picking the words that you want twisting them, and putting them in your argument is very dumb, stop arguing with you said when you're going to change the words I said to mean something different, that's dumb and childish, why isn't people going up in arms together to fight all of the abortions happening in the U.S? they're killing humans, and if you say that they're not humans, they would've been if they didn't get aborted. me saying "look the world is doing it too" is not me being dishonest like you said, but this is me telling you "why are you turning a blind eye to these problems, yet you come here all angry trying to fight a problem that probably happened in your country.
      the U.K can't go saying treat the workers better when their citizens are literally living in a place built by workers who worked in harsh conditions and were underpayed
      the U.S can't virtue signal us with human rights where most of their people choosing to end lives before they even start
      both EU and NA are full of problems, yet human rights only matter when they're violated in an arabic country, if that's not hypocrisy, then tell me, what is? I'll tell you what this is about, this isn't about human rights, this is about why aren't the arabs following our cool laws and becoming like us, it's not about human rights, it never was, it was about the west destroying the values and religion of the muslims.
      before you speak more garbage out of your mouth, please think, do not pick my words and use them against me after changing their meaning like all of you westerners do.
      also your comment got deleted again I don't know why, maybe because you know you're fighting a losing battle and you don't want people to see all the stupid stuff you're spewing, or maybe it's just a glitch from my end.

      @Tony Almonte stop being a hypocrite, I never said they didn't do anything wrong, I only said that you go virtue signal when it matters to you, but you would easily forget the rest of the world's bad deeds if it means blaming this country for doing the same thing, the U.K also used immigrants to build their country, yet no one would remember that fact and instead attack these people who are doing the same thing, such hypocrisy disgusts me, you say I'm pointing my finger on another problem when in fact, I'm only pointing my finger on the west's hypocrisy
      Do not come to me to tell me that a country is doing something wrong when you're from a country that did the same thing prior, that's all I said
      You'll avert your sight from the problems that the west causes, and focus solely on the problems the Islamic countries do

    He's right at the end. Ultimately the players are NOT responsible for the mess. They come to play THE football tournament.
    FIFA, UEFA and all those organizing bodies are at fault for how monetized, political and altogether corrupt this sport has become in the professional environment. This should all be changed in the next years to get back to basics by the time of the 100th anniversary of the event: a number of teams come to play football against each other. No 5 star hotels unless paid from the players/national associations themselves, only hosts that can actually host such an event, no tournaments spread across 5,000x3,000 km (looking at you 2026), etc. etc.
    It is a first world problem for sure for a millionaire pro player, but if I was going to such an event I would hate to be bothered by questions and expectations about everything that surrounds the event with football as the least important thing.

    The awful treatment of workers in the gulf countries have been going on for ages and it is so much deeper than you can think from construction workers to domestic workers it is actually something beyond the world cup. who do you think built burj Khalifa in dubai or the entirety of dubai the city that you flood every year on new year's eve. Actually this world cup caused qatar to be the first gulf country to finally realise the awful treatment and start to make changes there is still much more to go but at least they started. And again the question will be where to have the world cup if you need a country to be perfect to host it or do you mean white countries should be the only one to do so. And when you choose to make a statement and protest you choose to support gay people not the people that literally died. Again the issue of lgbtq people isn't a government thing it is a culture thing it is not the country that doesn't want it it is us the people who don't. The world literally had the Olympics both the summer one and the winter one in China a country that right now are ethnically cleansing the uyghurs and no fu**ing person spoke out this is why when you talk to us about human rights we Don't take you seriously because it is not coming from a place of care it is coming from a place of pride and ego that only you the white nations are deserving of anything and the one who are truly civilised. So when you speak of human rights try not to selective (I am not talking about John program I am talking in general)

    I for one find it strange that a person knowing what has been shown in this episode would say "it is terrible, but I'm still going to watch it". Granted, I'm not a soccer fan, and there's also the argument of sunk costs as in "the bad stuff has already happened, so my watching the thing will not hurt anybody". But that argument is patently false, or you could apply it to, say, CP. Logic tells me that boycotting the thing by not going there and not watching it would reduce the whole thing to the farce that it is, and low viewer count would demonstrate to the fifa and tv channels that following such a course will result in decreased ad profits and they should change something. It's kinda like the Ukraine thing: yeah, we know you're having a hard time, and here's some news reports about your hardship, and a bit of military help (no you still can't have the better stuff); but we still will pay the bald guy a billion a day for gas, and we'll still buy their oil as getting off the needle cold turkey is way too tough, and hold the thought that starting the process earlier would've made it easier, cheaper, and faster. Meanwhile, let's also put some blame on the Russian people who've been fed propaganda for literally decades, have no more power to oppose the regime than the workers in Quatar, and have been suffering forced poverty and opression all that time - they're the ones paying taxes, after all, not that they come into any comparison with our oil and gas payments, but let's not talk about that as well.

    This is the precise reason that trade unions should be a significant force in society. The Qataris were in a time crunch so the workers had all the power. They could have gone on strike and threatened to halt construction entirely, and this could only have been achieved by an organised trade union movement.

    Speaking of construction workers, the sad reality is, the Qatari Government or in all Middle East as this a standard practice, look for hiring agencies and hired on their agency name as contractor ( a standard practice) with all the correct amount from salary up to fund the housing and others PLUS the earning for that hiring company. Sad to say that there is corruption inside the interconnected hiring agencies from different countries. It is a cartel/mafia/triad like system that even personnel from a certain country embassy worker who processes the work passport, is paid by these hiring agencies. These hiring agencies are awesome ang very good in looking for workers that is cheap, easily manipulated and no power when they go home, or even still in work site, if they demand legally on that hiring agencies. It is better to hire an Indian or Pakistani guy rather than from Philippines or Malaysia or Indonesia because it can save the hiring agencies up to 90 percent on salary alone and water.

      @Dan Wolf I don't know about all crimes but drug crimes are at the same rate. Yet police choose to go after minorities more and that's where the bulk of incarcerated ppl comes from. It's a racist system

    I agree 💯 with Infantino for making those bold statement about the negativity of Europeans and their news outlets report on Qatar!

    240000 people are homeless in the uk meanwhile John Oliver is complaining about poor people who don’t have good houses in a country far away
    It’s crazy when realize that the qatari government did a better job dealing poor people than most western countries,for example in the us there are half a million people who don’t even have shelter

    A german comedian said it best I believe when he said he was pissed at FIFA for "forcing people to make a moral descision on whether or not to watch football".

      It’s Oliver Welke, and he‘s right. Gotta hand it to FIFA; they’re making millions off their moral bankruptcy and still get to tell fans „well, you watched, so you‘re complicit“. Evil masterminds.

      @Neha Lili I was thinking of Oliver Kalkofe, actually. But Welke might have said something similar.

      If he only realized that now it means he wasn"t paying attention before.
      Professional soccer has always been an insult to intelligence, and to the sport itself.
