International Campaign to Boycott UAE (ICBU) call on its members, supporters and human rights defenders to join its “social media” awareness campaign” which will commence on Monday-Saturday, 15 to 20 January 2018. The Campaign which will be using twitter storm to expose the human rights violations committed by United Arab Emirates.

ICBU will be working hard to make sure that UAE is disqualified and that that Dubai will not host the Expo 2020 which is used as PR stunt to improve the “Image” of an autocratic medieval regime.
Campaign Spokesperson, Henry Green announced on a press statement that, “UAE is an enemy for human rights, for tolerance and development of human beings. The country’s reputation is appalling and not fit to host such a landmark event”

Green added that Dubai Expo 2020 construction process is not human rights friendly were workers are abused and don’t have sufficient “health and safety” measures in place.

“United Arab Emirates is recruiting mercenaries to kill civilians in Yemen, involved in Slavery trade in Libya, facilitate human trafficking worldwide via Dubai, violates states sovereignty, confiscate freedom of expression for its people and using torture to repress its critics. These are facets of autocratic regimes. Such regimes should be boycott and isolated. Thus, Dubai Expo 2020 should be moved to another country.” said Green

The Campaign invite its supporters to tweet about human rights abuse in UAE and “occupy” the official Hashtags used by Dubai Expo 2020 organising committee which is: #DubaiExpo2020 #Dubai_Expo #Expo2020 @expo2020dubai#إكسبو_2020 #BoycottUAE
