|Human Rights & Pro Sex Worker Rights Exhibition, & Launch of Petition against the Registration of Sex Workers in the Northern Territory |
6th Dec, 5.30 pm, Supreme Court, State Square, Darwin
This Installation highlights that human rights protocols are selectively being ignored by governments globally in relation to sex workers. Unsafe working conditions, stigma and discrimination still remains, destroying lives of many sex workers. The viewer is asked to reflect and think about their own judgments on sex workers. The wig, clothing and shoes have all been worn by sex workers at work.
"The registration of individual sex workers is a violation of human, working and civil rights. Sex workers have the right to privacy, the right to work in an occupation of choice, the right to live and work free from violence and harassment, the right to live free from discrimination, vilification, trafficking and prohibition."
"We want working rights, human rights, union rights – WITH EQUALITY"
