image001ECP and Queer Strike workshop at Anarchist Bookfair Sat 18 October.
Consenting sex is not a crime!

4.00pm – 5.00pm
Queen Mary, University of London, Mile End Road, London, E1 4NS. 2nd Floor, Room 2.41

Gay sex has been decriminalised yet the criminalisation of sex work has increased. Why should two adults who want to have consensual sexual contact with each other in private not be able to do so, just because payment is involved? Lgbtq sex workers and supporters are spearheading campaigns for the abolition of the prostitution laws which includes taking on parliamentarians who have formed an alliance with homophobic “evangelical Christians” to propose increased criminalisation. With rising unemployment and benefit cuts, the number of sex workers is increasing. Police arrests, raids, crackdowns and deportations are making it more dangerous to work. Come hear about campaigns for decriminalisation, including recent victories in France and Canada and discuss how we can work together to throw off “the last significant vestige of Victorian moral law”.

Organised by: English Collective of Prostitutes and Queer Strike

  1. Hoping I have addressed this e mail to the right place I would just like to say how much I agreed with Nikki Adams in her interview on R4 this morning. It seems to me that Parliament is heading in the wrong direction trying to outlaw the sale of sex. I would like to assure you that you have at least one supporter in what I believe are your objectives. -me

    Kind regards
