Strike4decrim meeting-London May 23rd
« on: 17 May 2018, 04:10:25 pm »
After a successful march and rally on International Women's Day. the Sex Workers' Strike have organised a meeting about how to take this forward.

The strike4decrim campaign and union organising is starting to take shape.

Phase one:
1. unionisation of strip clubs and SEV
2. Developing a three year political campaign for decrim - design and development for three months.

The possibilities for this are pretty damn exciting (and challenging) but they will only work if we bring together all the sex worker groups and also push out and involve 100s of workers across the industry.

Please get involved and help spread the word
Unionisation + decrim planning meeting 23rd May 3pm - 5.30pm

DM me for address. (want to protect us from unwanted visitors) xx

Thank you for posting this info!

I can't attend next week but I'm definitely interested in getting involved in campaigning for decriminalisation.
I'll PM you to stay in the loop in the future.
