Reminder! If you're buycotting a company, make sure to contact them & let them know that you are & why!
The FIFA 2022 World Cup in Qatar is the location of one ofthe greatest human rights abuses of our time. Migrant workers are being forcedto live in inhumane condition, pay is being withheld, and their passportsstolen so they cannot leave - and then they're being worked to death. Therehave been 1,200 deaths so far (possibly more) and it's projected that atleast 4,000 will die by the time of the World Cup.
There are many large US corporations funding the Cup, despite all this. Somehave "voiced concerns", but none have pulled their funding. Join theboycott today to let these companies know that until they pull their funding(or the abuses are *completely* addressed) we will not support them.
Either the World Cup needs to be pulled from Qatar, these abuses must beaddressed, or these companies MUST stop their funding.
ALSO! Don't forget to contact these companies to let them know that you'reboycotting their products & why!

I'll update as/if the situation changes.
UPDATE #1: Blatter has resigned as President of FIFA! His subordinate said the re-election may take place anywhere from November of this year to March of next year, leaving him in power until then. However, this does leave the Cup in Qatar in jeopardy, as he was one of its largest supporters! Stock in Qatar's cup has also dropped & corruption investigations are ongoing by the FBI
