ICBU: Banning the Foreigners’ Entry into the UAE due to their Work and Residency in Qatar has been Described as “Racial Discrimination”

16 May 2018

International Campaign to Boycott UAE (ICBU)┬áhas considered the UAE decision of banning the Qatari people and the people who hold the Qatari visas from entering the United Arab Emirates as “racial discrimination”. The United Arab Emirates has issued a decree banning the entry of travellers with Qatari passports or expatriate immigrants with a residence visa in Qatar. The UAE government has circulated the decision to all airlines traveling to the UAE.

ICBU described the decision as an unjust decision that promotes and encourages the practice of racial discrimination, and that the UAE is a country based on racial discrimination. This is scientifically wrong, it is a literary offense and a social danger, and there is no justification for the practice of racial discrimination.

The boycott campaign stressed that the UAE would not be deterred from this racist regime except by boycotting, and that under international law, “states should not have a relationship with an entity that practices racial discrimination.” Calling on the international community to boycott the UAE by withdrawing investment and boycotting supporting companies till it removes the system of racial and immoral discrimination.

The boycott campaign also called on the international community to intervene immediately to stop human rights violations in the UAE and to force the authorities in the UAE to respect human rights laws. The campaign also called on all countries that respect human rights laws and the free world to boycott the UAE because they violate human rights daily, whether in the war in Yemen or with neighbouring countries, citizens or residents.

 

The boycott campaign said it was launched in the light of the endless violations of human rights practiced by the UAE, as well as its war crimes in Yemen and violations of workers’ rights, as well as the fact that the UAE is the centre of modern slavery. The United Arab Emirates today is one of the leading countries in human-trafficking and is one of the main supporters of terrorist groups in Syria and other parts of the Middle East.
