Or the arrests of some UAE citizens who were considered a threat to the country... or the stateless people who have lived in the UAE for decades, even before its formation..

Not to forget the way that all those buildings and pieces of infrastructure are being built.. the blue collar and lower sections of the workforce are treated very badly.. such is the differences in earnings.. in other words, the wealth gap is pretty big..

The UAE took note of protests/riots taking place in other parts of the Arab world, including the Khaleej area.. and then decided to introduced additional perks to prevent any protests.. Saudi Arabia and Oman did the same.. although there were some minor strikes in these areas..

And remember, brazil has about 160 million people.. the UAE, less than 10 million?

Just so you guys know, São Paulo, in its 'expanded center' has the crime rate equivalent to that of European capitals, like Paris, for instance. Most of its decreasing numbers in violece refer to peripheral regions.

And I also do think that comparing cities doesn't do any good, since all of them have clear reasons to be on the dispute, and as any other place in the world, have their ups and downs.

Everyone talks about crime rates when they want to criticize Brazil (and South America for the matter of fact) when for me the region where UAE is located has another kind of violence. Is violence of rights, religion, and so on. Talk about poverty? So look at your own problems.
Besides, we don't have as many threats regarding terrorism in here than in Middle East and around.
We have problems? Yes. The same way any country has. Now what we should consider is: are things changing? The EXPO can help boost those changes? Again the answer it would be yes. There are changes happening and they can be helped by this major event, which will help the flow of money throughout the city by its location "ouside"of the downtown area.
But maybe only a few here knows that, since almost everyone makes criticism just for the sake of doing it...

At the time, as San Paulo, Dubai and Izmir are playing fair, Ekaterinburg is buying votes.
$40k from the Russian budget to the state of Vanuatu.
The same to the state of Fiji.
Tuvalu: repair two schools and a police station, the purchase of radios and electric shock batons for police officers, payment of overseas trips for members of the local government
The Republic of Kiribati: Russia pays for Kiribati delegation trip to Paris.
Republic of the Marshall Islands: Russia takes over the funding of the summit participants the Pacific Islands Forum.
Republic of Palau: $ 500,000 to eliminate the effects of the typhoon.
East Timor: a Russian translation and publication of a collection of poems, Prime Minister Gusmão K. "My sea."

I think ekaterinburg's bid should be eliminated. Shame to russia

It is unfair the present but trust me the pain of now turns to the joy of future. Also I think sometimes its unfair because your heart is slightly to the left so its not always fair that second but I always think that slightly more to left turns to more fairness later.

But its true, the world is dark but compare russia to Uae, which one would you rather go to the future russia or future UAE?
