In 2010, Qatar was awarded the World Cup by Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), the international governing body of association football -- responsible for the organization and promotion of the World Cup. In 2018, approximately 1.12 billion watched the 2018 World Cup Finals between Croatia and France, which was won by the latter. Estimates claim that 3.572 billion people watched the World Cup in 2018.
The World Cup is by far the world's most popular sporting event. However, the 2022 World Cup is not without controversy and a slew of labor violations -- which this article will focus on. The treatment of migrant workers from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka has been a hot topic since Qatar began building World Cup stadiums after being awarded the tournament (commonly countries awarded with the World Cup already have this infrastructure in place).

“Desire changes nothing; decision changes something; while determination changes everything.”
– Harold D’Souza
Before the program ended, Harold D’Souza gives a positive takeaway for his otherwise harrowing & traumatic story. A labor trafficking survivor, anti-trafficking spokesperson, and advocate for the survivors and sufferers of all human trafficking, Mr. D’Souza founds Eyes Open International and commits his voice to courage, hope and freedom for all the victims of this international injustice.
The ongoing existence of modern slavery – a clear and present evil – has eluded every simple solution and half-measure thus far. Everything tried before, if they were in earnest, failed, as wealth continued to grow. However, from where he sits, Mr. D’Souza offers his unrelenting determination to reach better possible futures – ones banishing the skeletons of human trafficking from the shadowy parts of our world, as they have in the past.
Racism in America – What We Know About It?
The term “Racism” has taken the world by storm. The recent incident of the cruel arrest of George Perry Floyd led to one of the biggest protests in history. But why did this single incident churned the hearts of millions? Well, the answer dates back to the colonial era. Yes, racism is an ancient evil that has taken the lives of thousand George Flyods, if not millions.
Nowadays, we scroll our Facebook or Twitter feeds and see thousands of videos where innocent American civilians are subjected to this torture. But, what exactly is racism?
Racism is an immoral practice or ostracism of people of color by the privileged white majority. This practice allowed the white Americans to enjoy legal and social sanctity while denying these rights and confining the people of color to slavery and oppression. Over the years, White European Americans who supported slavery tried to justify their disgraceful malpractices by giving hollow scientific theories about white supremacy and black inferiority.
