DUBAI—Calling it the most ambitious project of its kind ever undertaken, officials from Dubai’s Department of Economic Development
announced Tuesday the emirate’s plans to construct the world’s largest
human rights violation.
Set to begin later this month, the
project, dubbed Saqr Ganzeer, or “Chained Falcon,” will reportedly take
as long as 10 years to complete and make use of more than 250,000
foreign workers from the Indian subcontinent and other parts of Asia. It
is expected to easily surpass all previous record holders, towering
over every other abuse of rights in the wealthy Middle Eastern city.
this bold new endeavor, we will create the biggest deprivation of basic
human dignity the world has ever seen,” said DED deputy director Jamal
Al Falasi, who according to reports was selected to oversee the project
after successfully managing several of Dubai’s smaller violations of
individuals’ freedoms. “None of the others will even come close. Once
completed, it will be recognized everywhere as a symbol of Dubai and
everything our city stands for.”
