A representative of the coalition, Samah al-Sayed, explained that there will be an awareness campaign to reveal to citizens and organizations in European countries the “systematic” violations committed by the Qatari authorities.
The statement said it will reveal the Qatari authorities’ human rights violations against prisoners of conscience, local tribes that it had withdrew their nationality, as well as the deteriorating living situation of foreign laborers working on construction projects in preparation for the 2022 World Cup.
