FCAP: Welsh Branch February 22, 2008Posted by Winter in activism.
A Welsh branch of the Feminist Coalition Against Prostitution is being set up.This is a UK wide group advocating a common approach to
prostitution for the whole of the UK
* We invite all Feminist individuals and groups, from all
backgrounds, to join this Coalition
* We are calling for the decriminalisation of all women, children
and men involved in prostitution – and demand that all criminal
records for loitering and/or soliciting be wiped so that survivors are
not barred from employment branded as ‘sex offenders’
* We urge the UK Government, the Scottish Parliament and Welsh
Assembly to consider a Swedish style law to make buying sex illegal
and to invest money in exit services such as housing, education &
training, legal advice, welfare benefits and health care
*We believe that prostitution is not inevitable – end demand
If you’re interested in joining, drop us an email mindthegapcardiff(at)yahoo(dot)co(dot)uk and we’ll pass you on.
This group will be independent of Mind the Gap, but will be supported by the network.
