Hi, couldn't use the mobile link and altering did not help. Googling comes up with https://www.facebook.com/events/552582234799603 for events that day, presuming it must be this?

Thanks, will be there if personal appointment finishes early enough.

is this in response to the murder of that lady recently and Sweden's lack of help?

Yes it is part of #JusticeforJasmine and I believe to highlight the dangers of any legislative that stigmatises sex workers.

I'll be there at 3pm too, hopefully will be a good turnout - would be great to see as many SAAFE folks as possible there! Bring your red brollies and sunglasses and your lovely selves.

i understand people wanting to get involved but are you not worried that you risk exposing yourselves to unwanted attention or publicity that protesting in public can bring

Shall we stay on topic, please?

Anybody wanting to continue this line of discussion can do so by starting another thread. You could call it 'Does attending a public protest which is open to all to demonstrate your opposition to bad legislation automatically make you a prossie?' Hint: the answer is no.

That's great to hear :). I really wanted to go but it just wasn't practical and there wasn't one any closer to me.

Anybody go to any of the others?
