Qatar releases robot laborers!

Alright so they’re not transformers or anything but this is the first time I see these rather than a poor laborer waving a flag in the hot sun.

Comment! What do you think?

  • I saw them yesterday in al gharrafa
    great idea to b honest I felt sorry for those poor guys standing allday in the sun

  • missy

    I saw those guys and it nearly caused me an accident. First of all, it was dusk so I wasn’t sure whether they were real or not. So that distracted me as I passed by and rubbernecked to check it out. Then, I was a little freaked out by its weird look! The face was eeeeeeeerie and a little scary. It might be a good thing in terms of not using real humans but I don’t really like them. Shudder.

Freedom of Expression

    Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which the Qatari Government is a signatory of states: Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any medias and regardless of any frontiers.

    The Emiri Decision Number 86 of the year 2007 on the establishment of the Doha Free Information Centre marked yet another step towards establishing a State of rights and freedom of speech. The decision stipulated that the Centre be a non-profit organization, headquartered in Doha City, and have the authority to establish other affiliated centres inside and outside Qatar. It is worth mentioning that His Highness the Emir issued a decision in 1998 annulling the ministry of information, giving birth to a new era of freedom of speech where censorship was removed from local media.
