Human Rights Group to Boston: Qatar It Out!

Yesterday Qatar Airways launched nonstop flights between Logan International Airport and Doha, the capital of Qatar. So yesterday a human rights group launched an ad campaign in the Boston Globe calling for a boycott of the airline.

The Alliance for Workers Against Repression Everywhere, or AWARE, began running local radio spots last week “denouncing alleged human rights violations against workers by the airline and the State of Qatar, which owns it,” according to a Globe report.

The group’s press release is here. Ditto #boycottqatar.

Qatar Airways, meanwhile, seems blissfully unAWARE of the boycott.

Just another fly-by protest, eh?
