Reports: Abused workers go on rampage in Qatar


Angry labourers protest overdue wages and poor working conditions

Cairo: Migrant workers, angry over rights abuses, staged violent protests in Qatar, online reports have said.

The protesters took to the streets, decrying #oppressive #government policies, overdue wages and #inhuman working conditions, they said.

Online images showed cars reportedly destroyed by angry demonstrators, who work on building stadiums that will host the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

The hashtag “#Riot Acts in Qatar” has become a popular Arab trending over the past hours in a show of solidarity with the protesting workers.

Tweeters also mocked the Qatari news television Al Jazeera for ign... show more

From January 2019...

A veteran national security journalist with NBC News and MSNBC blasted the networks in a Monday email for becoming captive and subservient to the national security state, reflexively pro-war in the name of stopping President Donald Trump, and now the prime propaganda instrument of the War Machine’s promotion of militarism and imperialism.

From January 2019...

A veteran national security journalist with NBC News and MSNBC blasted the networks in a Monday email for becoming captive and subservient to the national security state, reflexively pro-war in the name of stopping President Donald Trump, and now the prime propaganda instrument of the War Machine’s promotion of militarism and imperialism. As a result of NBC/MSNBC’s all-consuming militarism, he said, “the national security establishment not only hasn’t missed a beat but indeed has gained dangerous strength” and “is ever more autonomous and practically impervious to criticism.”

The NBC/MSNBC reporter, William Arkin, is a longtime prominent war and military reporter, perhaps best known for his groundbreaking, three-part Washington Post series in 2010, co-reported with two-time Pulitzer winner Dana Priest, on how sprawling, unaccountable, and omnipotent the national security state has become in the post-9/11 era. When that three-part investigative series, titled “Top Secret America,” was

Nation state....The official narrative of nation states is that they represent independent political entities. Most of these claim to be "democratic" and that they seek to influence world events so as to promote the welfare of the citizens of that country. These 'democracies' represent the will of their electorates.
Problems
Most "democratic" states use a hierarchical system of representative democracy in which the involvement of citizens is limited to a vote every few years. In many, the party political structure has been infiltrated (or even set up) by the deep state, and so is in no way responsive to the desire of the electorate.
Although some nation states are independent actors,the importance of national governments is systematically overstated by the commercially-controlled media,which is keen to obscure the role played by deep state groups. John Perkins, for example, has written about the systematic policy of removing national leaders who refused to submit to foreign control. [1]The result is that many nominally "independent" nations are in reality controlled by sma... show more

Established businesses, like Facebook, use government to limit competition.
Once, Microsoft had zero lobbyists. The company focused on innovating.
Microsoft in the early 1990s was the largest company in the world. Incredibly successful … They had no presence in Washington DC. Not a single lawyer,” Yaron Brook of the Ayn Rand Institute tells John Stossel.
