Join our Qatar protest

London this Sat 19 November 1-2pm

Timed for the day before the World Cup starts in Qatar


Angry about Qatar’s sexism, homophobia and racism? Want to stand in solidarity with Qataris who seek reform?

Join the protest this Saturday 19 November, 1-2pm outside Qatar’s embassy, 1 South Audley Street, London W1K 1NB

Nearest tubes: Green Park and Hyde Park Corner


Backed by Qatari human rights defenders, this protest is the day before the football World Cup starts in Qatar.

This is our chance to keep the pressure on the Qatari dictatorship and its backers in FIFA, the football governing body that gave Qatar the World Cup.

Saturday’s protest urges:

1. End the criminalisation, jailing, online entrapment, ‘honour’ killing and forced conversion of LGBTs

2. Abolish the male guardian system, whereby women have to get male permission to marry, work, study and travel abroad

3. Compensate the families of dead migrant workers, pay unpaid wages, close overcrowded slum hostels and give workers the right to join a trade union

I hope you can join us.
