aparte de lo que mencionas es asquerosamente hipócrita porque aparenta de ser moderna pero es de todo menos moderna. En qué sentido no es moderna? Bueh, no le vale nada hacer construcciones "modernas" si todavía viven en la edad media donde los derechos de la mujer no se respetan. Nosotros nos admiramos de que en Latinoamérica somos machistas pero nuestro machismo no es para nada comparable con el de allá. Aparte que son homofobos, todos los que construyen estos megarascacielos son temporeros de países como la India, Filipinas y otros más que son más pobres. Y en gran parte de los casos son temporeros a la negra, es decir mano de obra no "legal".

<- "Dubai's human rights situation is sickening, Even though dubai is becoming a tourist destination and is coming up on the world map its just sad to see that the country is doing nothing in regards to this situation. most people visiting do not see the situation as it is hidden, there is no freedom of press, things are hidden from the public, workers are made to work like crazy, they have no rights whatsoever in most companies. I can go on and on and on about this what do you guys have to say..... what brought this sudden outburst of anger and frustration, on the way back from work today I saw about 50-60 people jammed standing into a imigration transportation truck being herded somewhere like animals, probably for minor immigration violations."

Human rights and labour
The massive construction projects currently in Dubai have required more construction workers than there are citizens of the city (note: over 80% of Dubai’s population consists of expatriates\non-citizens). This has led to massive importation of low-wage workers, especially from India and Pakistan. [5] Most of these workers are forced to give up their passports upon entering Dubai, making it very difficult to return home. NPR reports that workers "typically live eight to a room, sending home a portion of their salary to their families, whom they don't see for years at a time." Others report that their salary has been withheld to pay back loans, making them little more than indentured servants. [6] The BBC has reported that "local newspapers often carry stories of construction workers allegedly not being paid for months on end. They are not allowed to move jobs and if they leave the country to go home they will almost certainly lose the money they say they are owed. The names of the construction companies concerned are not published in the newspapers for fear of offending the often powerful individuals who own them." [7].

In December 2005, the Indian consulate in Dubai submitted a report to the Government of India detailing labour problems faced by Indian expatriates in the emirate. The reported highlighted delayed payment of wages, substitution of employment contracts, premature termination of services and excessive working hours as being some of the challenges faced by Indian workers in the city. [9].

On 21 March 2006, tensions boiled over at the construction site of the Burj Dubai as workers upset over low wages and poor working conditions rioted, damaging cars, offices, computers, and construction tools. A Dubai Interior Ministry official said the rioters caused approximately one million U.S. dollars in damage. On March 22nd most workers returned to work but refused to work. The work stoppage also caused workers building a new terminal at Dubai International Airport to strike. [6]

The alleged labour injustices in Dubai have attracted the attention of various Human Rights groups. Mafi Wasta, for example, is a website created specifically for the purpose of persuading the government of the UAE to sign up to 2 of the ILO's (International Labour Organization) 7 core conventions - namely 87 and 98 - which allows for labour unions. The site lists examples of human rights violations in the country. Human Rights Watch said that the men were treated "less than human".

However, the UAE government has denied any kind of labour injustices and has stated that the watchdog's (Human Rights Watch) accusations were misguided [1]. Towards the end of March 2006, the government announced steps to allow construction unions. UAE labour minister Ali al-Kaabi said: "Labourers will be allowed to form unions."

Prostitution, though illegal by law, is conspiciously present in the emirate because of an economy that is largely based on tourism and trade. There is a high demand for women of Eastern Europe. According to the World Sex Guide, a website catering to sex tourists, Russian and Ethiopian women are the most common prostitutes, while Indian prostitutes are part of a well organized trans-Oceanic prostitution network [10].

y este otro:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_r..._Arab_Emirates :

Migrants, particularly migrant workers, make up a majority (approximately 80%) of the resident population of the UAE, and account for 90% of its workforce.[1] They lack rights associated with citizenship and face a variety of restrictions on their rights as workers.

It is common practice for employers in the UAE to retain employees' passports for the duration of the employment contract to prevent expatriate employees from changing jobs. This is an illegal practice, but it is almost never investigated, let alone punished by the government. On termination of an employment contract, certain categories of expatriates are banned from obtaining a work permit in the country for six months.

The United States Department of State has cited widespread instances of blue collar labor abuse in the general context of the United Arab Emirates [2].

The government has been criticized by human rights agencies such as Human Rights Watch for its inaction in addressing the discrimination against Asian workers in the emirate. Salary structures based on nationality, sex, age, and race rather than on qualification are common [3].

y hay una infinidad más de información sobre este tema...

eso es el 1% de Dubai. El 99% de la ciudad vive en la pobreza, ami parecer es el pais mas corrupto del mundo. Solo pq los malditos empresaros arabes estan bañados en petroleo.

Totalmente Impresionante sin duda alguna... La ciudad con el mayor empleo de grúas de construcción actualmente en el mundo...

Por el otro lado, es una ciudad que la relaciono con el lado deplorable de la humanidad y el sistema que impera actualmente...

Me causa un cierto temor...


Muy buena compilación Cristi@n

me quedé pa dentro con todo lo que dijo chilenofuturista, no sabía que podría haber crueldad tal en este mundo por construir esta ciudad-rascacielos, e ntodo caso increíble el cambio de la ciudad de ser un peladero en los 90 a el estado actual de las obras en el 2006... en todo caso no encuentro que se vaya a ver tan agradable el skyline de dubai para la vista, si va a ser algo woooowww ... en shock

eso es más que obvio, si bien los edificios de dubai tienen un buen diseño en cierto grado, en espacios públicos dejan mucho que desear, el deseo del emirato por mostrarse al mundo lo esta cegando y convirtiendo en una ciudad más símbolo del capitalismo que en su afán de acumulación de riquezas, termina beneficiando i enriqueciendo a pocos y marginando a muchos que reciben por chorreo (no muy distante de la situacion de chile)... ME FUI POR OTRO LADO... creo que queda más que claro ésto con lo que apuntaChilenofuturista ... prefieren un buen negocio a hacer una ciudad bien planificada ambientalmente, lo que pueden hacer, ya que la ciudad a pesar de estar por el millón de hbtes está literalmente "PARTIENDO DE CERO"

Yo me pregunto con que irán a rellenar esos rascacielos. La idea de densificar en altura se aplica cuando se torna mas rentable que expandirse horizontalmente, aqui no se aplica esta logica si no mas bien una de construir para causar alguna impresion al visitante.

De todas formas ya quisieramos uno, tan solo uno de esos rascacielos en Santiago y me inmagino como harian fiesta.
