10 European football associations respond after FIFA sent focus on football letter in response to complaints about Human Rights violations by Qatar

Ten European football associations have responded to world football ruling body, FIFA saying human rights are universal and apply everywhere after Fifa asked nations competing at the Qatar World Cup to now focus on the football.

The 2022 world cup hosts, Qatar has been criticised for its stance on same-sex relationships, its human rights record and its treatment of migrant workers.

Englands FA has backed calls for compensation to be awarded for any injury or death related to any construction project for the World cup while peaceful protests have been planned by some players, and ten captains of European teams will be wearing One Love armbands to promote diversity and inclusion.

Denmark said it will wear toned-down shirts to protest against Qatar, with kit provider Hummel saying it does not wish to be visible in a tournament it claims has cost thousands of lives, while Australias squad have released a video urging Qatar to abolish its laws on same-sex relationships.

FIFA last week the wrote to all 32 teams, in the letter, signed by its president Gianni Infantino and secretary general Fatma Samoura, urged that football should not be dragged into ideological or political battles and it should not be handing out moral lessons.

The FIFA letter was criticised by Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and LGBT+ campaigners in England and Wales.

While acknowledging the significant progress made by Qatar, a joint statement issued by members of the Uefa Working Group on human rights and labour rights on Monday, November 7, said it would continue to press Fifa for answers on outstanding issues surrounding migrant workers.

We acknowledge, and welcome, as we have done in the past, that significant progress has been made by Qatar, particularly with regards to the rights of migrant workers, with the impact of legislative changes demonstrated in the International Labour Organisations recent reports, said the statement.

We welcome the assurances given by the Qatari Government and by Fifa regarding the safety, security, and inclusion of all fans who travel to the World Cup, including LGBTQ+ fans. We also recognise that every country has issues and challenges and we agree with Fifa that diversity is a strength.

However, embracing diversity and tolerance also means supporting human rights. Human rights are universal and they apply everywhere.

We will continue to support the momentum for positive, progressive change and continue to advocate for a conclusive outcome and update on the two key outstanding issues we have been discussing with Fifa for a long time, the Uefa Working Groups statement continued.

Fifa has repeatedly committed to deliver concrete answers on these issues - the compensation fund for migrant workers, and the concept of a migrant workers centre to be created in Doha - and we will continue to press for these to be delivered.

We believe in the power of football to make further positive and credible contributions to progressive sustainable change in the world.

In the case of migrant workers, its understandable, they need to do something about it. But that of same sex marriage is completely out of the pictures, you cant force a country to accept your beliefs, Quatar is a nation with her laws, you cant force to accept yours. Its completely unacceptable, if you dont like their laws, then you can pull out of the World Cup. I am tired of this LGBTQ people trying to force everyone to accept their demented belief. And trying to cancel anyone who oppose them.

Sexuality is not a belief. Legislating against LGBTQ people is like criminalising people for the colour of their hair, their age, race or gender. It stinks of ignorance and backwards illiteracy. The rest of the developed world cannot be wrong. Laws are not absolute and as we learn better, that we live on earth and not some imaginary heaven, it is fundamental to challenge certain remnants of religious persecution.

tanx bro. d migrants workers will always av issues as far as documentations are concerned. but ds wereys EU want us to recognize same sex marriage by force. it wont happen.

The only reason eu carry the case is not because of treatment of migrant workers or human rights violations but only cos of their gay brothers and uncles... If we come to ur eu countries we obey ur laws without question so please as you are entering another country thats not under ur control, you obey their own laws too without questioning ...focus on football

Then why allow them host the competition in the first place
