CFMEU Construction National Secretary Dave Noonan is this week raising his voice against the modern day slavery he has just witnessed in Qatar.
And he is asking the Australian football community not to look the other way, ignoring this human tragedy.
Dave was in Qatar as part of an International Trade Union delegation in early December.
“The beautiful game will be poisoned if it is built on the base of slavery in Qatar,” construction union leader, Dave Noonan, warned.

The CFMEU is appalled at the announced closure of Holden by 2017.
“Our thoughts go out to all the workers and their families who will be facing a bleak future this Christmas,” CFMEU National Secretary Michael O’Connor said.
“The failure of the Abbott Government in the face of this crisis will be disastrous for thousands of Holden workers, and for the automotive industry in this country which employs 50,000 people.
Peabody's announcement it will close its Wilkie Creek mine in Queensland's Surat Basin comes as a blow to workers, their families and local communities just before Christmas, the Miners Union said.
As we head into Christmas, the company must now put the interests of mining families first, said CFMEU Mining and Energy Queensland Vice President Shane Brunker.
Workers were taken by surprise by today’s announcement, he said.
