This day, back in 1975, over 100 sex workers occupied the St. Nizier church in Lyon, France to demand respect, better working conditions and an end to police harassment/brutality. They held their occupation for 8 days. Since then sex workers all over the world, primarily in India, have kept this day alive and fighting! Today we honor all the whoremothers, ALL sex workers, all those trying to survive and thrive the best way they can. Today we call for full decriminalization, decarceration and radical ho unions now!
