While the Arab spring is bringing democracy to Libya and Egypt Saudi Arabia continues to abuse millions of domestic workers. Hundreds and maybe thousands of working class women working as virtual slave labourers in their employers houses in middle-eastern countries have been killed without. Nothing is done as working class women from poor countries are seen as expendable.
Working class women from poor countries such as Indonesia and the Philippines are exploited, sexually and physically abused and even killed with impunity in countries in the middle east.
It is time that countries where this happens make laws to prevent such abuse and then enforce the laws.
We must ask our politicians to bring up the millions of exploited workers when they meet government representatives of countries like Saudi Arabia, Lebanon and Jordan.
