集合時間:晚上七時

日期:2019年3月8日 (星期五) 集合地點:萊斯特廣場 Leicester Square   集合時間:晚上七時 照顧家庭、相夫教子、滿足別人的性需要……這些都是女性理所當然的工作嗎?絕不!可是,我們每天擔當著這些角色、提供免費服務,卻被全世界認為是理所當然!試想,沒有我們這些免費勞工,社會能正常運作嗎?社會上存著種種不公——性別歧視、種族主義,和刑事法例,直接和間接地打壓女性。所以,在三月八日,即國際婦女日, 我們會以罷工表達不滿,以此對抗社會不公! 我們拒絕以性工作/ 工作換取金錢! 我們會罷做家務,不要再當我們是理所當然的免費勞工! 種種不公,對性工作者尤其不利。但因著社會因素,包括整體工資和福利減少,令更多人加入性工作行列。可是,政府卻不是提供幫助,反而打擊性工作者。警察對性工作的地方毫不留手,並起訴我們這些需在街頭工作的人。我們沒有收入、處於劣勢,卻往往受威脅、逮捕,甚至是被驅逐! 而且,對於移民的性工作者,情況更是不堪設想!受移民的性工作者常被歧視,當我們控訴被施以暴力,卻換來白眼,被指說謊!我們被關押在拘留中心,又被驅逐出境。 再者,受脫歐潛在影響,我們亦很擔心會失去工作。 去年,全國各地的脫衣舞女開始組織工會,對抗不公、反對剝削,並獲得勝利! 在人權、工人權利的保護下,我們有權以自己的聲音抗爭不公!我們聚集,抗議對我們有害的法律!我們鼓勵全球的性工作者在三月八日聚首一堂,罷工抗議! 總的來說,當經濟愈差、福利減少,或令更多人加入性工作;但政府並非減少緊縮,而是加以打壓。況且,把性工作與犯下刑事罪等同,並以此判斷女性的道德,真是合理嗎?此實是父權和階級主義產生的結果!其實不單是性工作者,所有的女性皆受影響。所以,我們呼籲支持女權主義的你,在三月八日,加入我們的行列,對抗不公,要求給予性工作者一個更安全的工作環境!
