Qatar 2022 World Cup to have a robust security plan

The first Arab country to host the World Cup has already begun working with several police agencies across the world

The Euro 2016 held in France last year saw the English and Russian fan groups clash before and after the group game in Marseille . Two nights before the match saw clashes across the French city while as soon as the full-time whistle blew, ultras from the Russian end1 made their way towards England supporters and began throwing punches and kicks. Nasser Al Khater, Assistant General Secretary for Tournament Affairs for the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy, stated that the State of Qatar has already begun working on a plan in order to deal with hooliganism at the 2022 World Cup. He went on to mention that Qatar is engaged in conversations with police agencies from various countries and are preparing a list of people who have had a notorious background.

Xavi ushered into coaching in Qatar2

Every tournament has its risks and this is typical with any major event . As long as we have a robust security and safety plan, you are able to minimize destruction as much as possible .

The good thing is that we have started working early . We have started working with Interpol (International Police Organisation) and ICSS (International Centre for Sport Security) from very early on.

What s good is that we work with security and police forces of various countries that have a large database of people who have created trouble in the past . We are fortunate that the information sharing is taking place . We hope to minimise the people who in the past have caused trouble, from being involved in the World Cup . I think that s an important thing that we shouldn t ignore, he answered to a query on how Qatar will deal with hooligan culture. Probably for the first time in the history, one of the venues is ready more than five years before the World Cup kicks-off.

There was never a World Cup which had 12 year lead time also ! I think Khalifa s refurbishment is not just for the World Cup as it will host the 2019 s World Athletics Championship .

We will have stadiums ready relatively early as compared to other World Cups . We have a deadline of 2020, said Khater.

Xavi: ‘If Iniesta wants to renew his contract, Barcelona will do it’3

Asia will host only its second World Cup in 2022 and Khater opines that football in the world s largest continent is very much on the rise both from a technical and investment standpoint.

Qatar 2022 World Cup To Have A Robust Security Plan

I think it s going with the trend . I think Asian football is rising . It is becoming more competitive . There is a lot of investment from Asia especially from China in football . Technically too, the football is improving . It will be 20 years since Asia last hosted the World Cup . So it will be a source of immense joy and pride for the people of the region and Qatar, he mentioned.

The World Cup in Qatar will be a different experience for fans as for the very first time it is being hosted in a country where each venue isn t very far from the other . Commuting will not be a challenge as a fan can just hop into a metro and enjoy the greatest footballing extravaganza.

EXCLUSIVE: Xavi positive ‘close friend’ Messi will renew Barcelona contract4

Look obviously, our slogan was Expect amazing . We wanted to be true to that but also we promised an innovative World Cup . I think we are sticking to that promise as well . The amount of research going into this World Cup is immense . We have a new type of signature grass that is made for the region . We have the solar fuelled helmets, the cooling vests and the stadium alert system.

There is a weather station at the construction sites too . If the temperature goes beyond a certain point, the alarm goes on and the workers stop working .

Because of the heat in Qatar after a certain temperature the work has to stop . It used to be done manually but now this one is completely automated . To answer your question, yes there was a drive . We wanted to be innovative and there was a drive to be sustainable . There was a drive to develop spot beyond just football, he signed off.

A new narrative on human rights, security and prosperity

As I left the Nobel Women s Initiative conference on women human rights defenders yesterday to head the conference of the Women s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF), I was ruminating on an unresolved tension . How does the liberal conception of human rights, which places the individual are its core, sit with the collective consciousness that is necessary for peace?12

I found the answer in the women around me . In her opening address to the 1,000 women who had travelled to The Hague from 80 different countries, Jody Williams3, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1997, declared that, like many of us, when I hear anyone in a movement say I an awful lot, I get extremely nervous .

She s confident that the peace movement has to be about we: us unarmed civilians coming together to change the world . For Mairead Maguire4, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1976 for her work creating peace in Northern Ireland, the movement for peace and human rights is also a collective . It s a great mosaic , she explains, if once piece is taken away it can t work .

We are involved in an evolution of the human family, and a whole new way of living.

Like a mosaic, the collective finds its strength in its individual parts, in the personal, and in individual dignity . This is a relationship, says Jody, that is best articulated in the concept of human security: We women know what is security , she asserts, it s food on the table, a house to live in, it s access to medical care, it s a dignified job so you can raise your children, it s taking all that money put to weapons of death and putting in into welfare for a better world . That s security , she concludes, it s human security.

Human security

While security in the historical sense means a national security that protects the apparatus of the state and its structures of power, human security protects the integrity of citizens and the diversity of communities .

It means a world where up to 2,0005 people are not killed by arms every day . It means a world which calls on the United Nations to urge members to reduce military budgets by 10% and spend the saving on the social security of the people, says Shirin Ebadi6, Iranian Judge and 2003 Nobel Peace Prize laureate. Jody speaks at the UN against killer robots Jody speaks at the UN against killer robots

This conception of security was something missed by the Dutch ambassador, Kees van Barre, on the first day of the Nobel Women s Initiative conference when he proudly declared that human rights, security and prosperity were at the heart of their international agenda . The Netherlands is frequently lauded as one of the countries that is doing most7 to support women human rights defenders internationally, but they seem to have missed the point . As Shirin reminded him, the genealogy of human rights is peace and human security, not militarism and capitalism.

Jody confessed to us that the ambassador s comments had stopped her sleeping, the hair on the back of my neck stood up .

I thought, more of this Western mythology ! We need to ask what kind of human rights we are talking about , she clarified . Is it the name and shame human rights which, in the words of Mairead, are used to justify the undemocratic taking out of dictators ?

Or is it the expansive view of human rights: social, economic and cultural rights?

Beyond a liberal conception of human rights

Discussions on the final day of the Nobel Women s conference centred on the fact that for communities facing environmental destruction at the hands of international corporations, an expansive, grounded view of human rights is fundamental . There s an interconnectedness, says Tatania Cordero Velasquez, of the Urgent Action Fund Latin America8, that stems from the sacredness of life itself . Indigenous women in particular often want to be supported to stay in their territory as a collective .

Many of the strategies that Indigenous women have developed in Ecuador and Colombia to protect individual rights rely on linking the collective to land rights and the environment .

We ve inherited the idea from the liberal approach to human rights that it s us on top of the earth , says Tatania, this has been an important approach to modernity but there is a limit to these human rights we need to remember the connection and have a more integral and whole approach to life . This integrated approach is a common feature of Indigenous and Afro-descent communities . They do not speak of territories , Tatania explains, It s not water alone, the river alone, the forest alone, the people alone, it s everything .

It cannot be broken up . The land cannot be seen in a fragmented way, nor human beings relation to the land.

As a result of the involvement of Indigenous peoples in the constitutional process, Ecuador, like Bolivia, has enshrined this interconnected in their constitution by giving rights to nature as well as human beings . At the heart of this approach, explains Tatania is the notion of buen vivir, plenitude of life .

This, she says, is the context for our human rights . Yet even in those societies with constitutional environmental rights, she warns, the threat of state defined notions of security and prosperity loom heavily in the form of foreign business . The Chinese have invested 20 billion dollars in what remains of the oil industry in Ecuador, and the debt means the government is doing everything to get the oil out, including silencing people .

The future has already been written, says Tatania, and no one even asked us. Melina Laboucan-Massimo, of the Lubicon Cree First Nation and Greenpeace, we re talking about localising solutions on the ground .

We can implement new technology on our own . It s a fuck you to the big corporations . It s us self asserting energy sovereignty, food security .

These are things we need to localise back into our community . Things that this capitalist system has taken away from us and imported back . The importance of the interrelation between women s human rights and land rights becomes of critical importance in the context of conflict and violence, Melina continues .

For women s bodies are territory also . 9

There are currently more than 370 socio-environmental conflicts in Latin America, and as Global Witness10 reports in their latest research, in the last four years being a defender of the environment has become much more dangerous as conflicts become more protracted and more violent . In Canada, a new law, Bill C-51 URL11 is being passed by the Harper government to criminalise those who defend the land . Meanwhile, defamation campaigns on the political Left and Right class Indigenous and Afro-descent people as against development .

Legally they are now defined as a terrorist cell, the anti-petroleum movement .

One of the most devastating human rights crises facing Indigenous and two- spirit women in Canada who are resisting their land dispossession is sexual violence and enforced disappearances . Resource extraction, conducted with full complicity between the state and private corporations, is explicitly linked to deaths, violence and disappearances of women says Erin Konsmo from the Native Youth Sexual Health Network12, anywhere in the world where resource extraction is happening, fossil fuels, fracking, plantations etc, indigenous communities are seeing the link . Environmental violence is the new term for this, coined by indigenous women.

I ask Erin why this link exists between resource extraction and women s bodies .

In many Indigenous communities women hold the power, so if you remove the women it s easier to remove the power from whole nations , she explains .

100,000s of men suddenly come to a community with the purpose of destroying the land . The same kind of attitude to the land is extended to women s bodies, because we are part of that land . It s a hetero-patriarchal model of extraction and entitlement .

It s extraction not just of resources, but of women from the earth . I ask Melina, who lost her 25 year old sister Bella in suspicious circumstances in 2013, about the police response . The general attitude is one of indifference, she replies .

They said we ve followed all our leads, sorry to them now she s a statistic, she s aboriginal and she s a statistic . 1,017 Indigenous women were murdered between 1980 and 2012 in Canada, and 1000s more have been disappeared in suspicious circumstances . Despite pressure from the UN Special Rapporteur on Indigenous Women, the CEDAW Committee and the Inter-American Commission of Human Rights, the Canadian government is refusing to hold an independent inquiry . In a discussion of the issue over lunch, indigenous women activists – some coming together for the first time – agreed that at the heart of the struggle is the need to fight against big business which priorities prosperity as profit over the prosperity of people.1314

An alternative to capitalism: prosperity for the people

Prosperity, and its twin, development, agrees Jody, is an ambiguous and dangerous word in the mouths of state bureaucrats .

Real prosperity , she chides, is sustainable development that cares about the planet, that doesn t destroy the Amazon to steal the resources out of it . It s a prosperity that does not glorify the 1% and teach kids this is the greatest measure of success .

So how it is that we have let those in power define prosperity for us ? It s a humbling call to action from Edith Ballantyne15 who, at 93, is the oldest living active member of WILPF, having joined in 1942 .

Back then too, the women were talking about what kind of society we need to build , she tells us, the women were saying that there must be an alternative system to capitalism . Today we know the system does not work today it s not even just an economic competition . We re complete slaves of an economic casino.

The logic of capitalism can never bring peace, echoes Madeleine Rees16, Secretary General of WILPF .

Our founding sisters said if we privatised the arms industry we would let market capitalism into security and it would never work . And now, while we re busy buying arms the economic system isn t working .

1% own 48% of the world s wealth . Next year it s likely to be 52% and it will accelerate and accelerate until there s no such thing as democracy because they will control our countries .

And they will need security and they will need arms.

She s getting agitated . We re all getting agitated . We re sick of hearing the same old words .

Enough of state definitions of human rights, security and prosperity, says Jody, enough of the men in that UN sitting there and writing resolutions and telling us, granting us the right to be participants in defining our own security nothing about us without us! .

It s up to us , echoes, Leymah Gbowee17, recipient of the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize, to reframe the narrative of development . It s up to us to move beyond the phallic thrust of history and capital and war, to say no impunity for the murder of Indigenous women . We need to look back, pass on, preserve and restore, says Leymah.

We re fired up in the audience but with a humours flourish, Jody – unstoppable, unshakeable – re-grounds us and energises us so that we re ready to act: my mum told me not to use the phrase F- bomb , she jokes, it tarnishes the Nobel image
