Sweden's representative team going to a country where migrant workers dying to build world CUP stadiums, where homosexuals can be sentenced to death, and demokratiindex is below zero.
They do it ”for bringing critical dialogue”, and what should we think about it?
Well, it's not Martin Luther King. But it is in all cases a matter of approach.
nearly three years ago, the documentary Merci patron! up in French cinemas. Director François Ruffin is as old as I, a French variant of the obekväme the united states-filmmaker Michael Moore, he is the editor and vänsterradikal politicians, and he sowed the seed of the grass-roots labour movement Nuit Debou, who are protesting against the workers ' offerposition in a globalised hyperkapitalism.
I have followed the Ruffin since then, became fnissigt delighted when he gave a speech in the French lower house wearing amatörklubben Olympique Eaucoutrois green shirt. He did it while he pleaded for a solidaritetsskatt on fotbollsövergångar.
When Ruffin released a small book so I saw, of course, to buy it, and not just because he is a fascinating, driven, voice – but that title made it impossible not to be curious.
How can they steal the soccer ball?
the Book is called Comment ils nous ont volé le football, How they stole football from us. Less than a hundred pages historieteckning about how a sensation drowned in money and lost all forms of ethical compasses.
How could they steal the football from the us?
there were other things that were more important to us.
A gråmulen Monday in december presents football a squad to januariturnén, and it is what it is. A collection of Nordic-based players should get the chance to get acquainted with the landslagskulturen. Sweden will face Finland, with a bit of luck, someone or some show up something small that makes approaching the big guys.
Jotack, Janne Andersson has chosen ”prospects” and it is common. Europa League-playing Malmö FF does not let go off their players this time, makes sense there also, but we got a lot of other things that will make it worth to follow the matches. Listed Alexander Isaac, of course, that may open the door to the BVB the freezer. Viktor Gyökeres may seniorchansen. Robin Jansson writes on its saga, Daleho Irandust really deserves his chance and Hosam Aiesh can take the next step here.
”Long after Mikael Lustig-replacement”
Personally, I would also like to see Joel Andersson again, because I believe in him as a potential Mikael Lustig-replacement when the day comes.
Exciting, it is.
And yes, nah. It says as well as itself to the bomb that is here mainly is loaded with the destination rather than the passengers. Sweden will be going to Qatar in 2019 in order to prepare in the best way to be able to get to Qatar 2022. We have been taught to us everything about the emirate is an authoritarian regime, a young nation in which the worker is put in a meat grinder and sent home in coffins to Fifa to get great venues to their world CUP. Among other things, among a lot of other things.
First comes the championship, then the morale.
the national Movement of football would love to talk about its democratic potential, its civic function, but because someone had stolen it from us so revolves the around the same thing as everything else: the money.
There are no social protest movements that topple the world on the right, it lights no fires to demonstrate against this theft. Everyone is busy with securing the three points, securing a new transfer, secure a place at köttgrytorna.
And what shall we say about it?
First and foremost, that it comes a lot of responsibility with a great impact. Sweden concludes a trade agreement with Qatar is one thing, to iron ore and the machines will be shipped across the continents is in line with economic mechanisms. It is when you talk about democracy in one direction and keeps silent about the oppression to the other as the jars in the membranes.
While nepaleserna and the workers are kept in check with the noble nation, so can the rich play football – but they'll motherfuckers don't play there?
But shall we, therefore, certain.
”Have died for it to be played world CUP-football”
To be a part of the modern, global fotbollsrörelsen is forced to relate to skumraskekonomi, gangsterstater and various levels of moral and actual crime. Where we put the bar in such a world? What can we really require of our associations, organizations and leaders? It is sufficient to stand before Fifa's latest systemövergrepp, an undemocratic, anti-labour, lgbtq hateful hater regime and say, ”we are not for this, just not enough to receive”? That we are for human rights, but with the sense?
The absolute minimum we can demand, of ourselves and of, for example, Sweden's Fotbollförbund, is that they relate.
When Copenhagen were mailing out their presskallelse began to landslagschefen Stefan Pettersson talked about the value in to get acquainted with the environment in Qatar. Then spoke the secretary general Håkan Sjöstrand on the rest, on human rights and migrant workers.
He talked about the realism, about american football think of the ”exchange and critical dialogue”. The leader of the nordic unions will hold talks in Qatar to highlight the importance of human rights in the lead up to world CUP.
" We are not satisfied with how it looks down there, but I'm not for a boycott, said Janne Andersson now.
" No one should have to die for a world CUP in football, the Danish förbundsbasen Jesper Møller ruled.
Sweden has generally not spoken with the same emphasis, but the press, therefore, in the ”critical dialogue”.
It is, perhaps, not Martin Luther King, it is not something that Joe Hill had been able to write songs about. It is not an inflammatory speech that makes someone proud, or even a selection that costs something. But there is a way to relate, it is a chosen method, there is a way to say that you are aware of what you are doing.
guest workers have died in the systematic scale for it to be played world CUP football. Sweden intends in any case to mention that it is a problem.
In January meets a b-national team Finland in Qatar. They have passed the skamgränsen on the way there.
