International Day to End Violence Against Sex Worker
December 17 this year is the 5th International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers. Due to the social discrimination and the unfair legal treatment, sex workers are often exposed to different kinds of violence. We hope to commemorate the sex workers who have been bullied and killed with today’s activity, arouse more public concern on sex workers’ safety, protect and respect sex workers’ human rights.
We urge to the public and sex workers to do the protest with us. We are going to march from Wanchai to the Police Headquarters. We hope that there is more public concern on the violence faced by sex workers. We particularly hope that the police can stop all violence against sex workers immediately.
In addition, we will release the result of the election of ‘the most intolerable violation of sex workers’ rights’. If you would like to support and join this protest, please contact Zi Teng at 2332-7182 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
