International Day of Protest against the violent Abuse and Murder of Sex Workers - in memorial of Jasmine and Dora.
the International Commitee on the Rights of Sex Workers in Europe is calling all its members organisations, individuals, sex workers and allies to stand together and protest the recent murders of Jasmine and Dora, the violent attack against Ela and against all sex workers in Europe and worldwide.
Following the murders of Dora Özer and Petite Jasmine on the 9th and 11 of July 2013, sex workers, their friends, families, and allies are coming together to demand an end to stigma, criminalisation, violence and murders. In the week since the two tragedies occurred, the feelings of anger, grief, sadness and injustice – for the loss of Dora and Jasmine, but also for the senseless and systemic murders and violence against sex workers worldwide – have brought together people in 29 cities on four continents who agreed to organise demos, vigils, and protests in front of Turkish and Swedish embassies or other symbolic places.
JOIN US on Friday the 19th at 3 pm local time and stand in solidarity with sex workers and their loved ones around the world! Justice for Dora! Justice for Jasmine! Justice for all sex workers who are victims of violence!
