Sex workers fight against compulsory registration and identification in Germany

2 posts in this topic

Germany's parliament will likely pass new legislation today that severely infringes on sex worker rights and increases their vulnerability.

The proposed legislation contains important elements that are not found elsewhere. Instead of seeking an outright ban on sex work, or the popular ‘Nordic’ model, which remain the preferred options for anti-sex work activists globally, the German legislation is instead designed to regulate and repress the lives and livelihoods of sex workers under the guise of both ‘protection’ and ‘public order’. Instead of strengthening the legal position of sex workers and victims of trafficking towards third parties, the law will instead weaken existing protections and infringe on human rights and civil liberties.

You've called it correctly Carnival. The federal government passed that law. ( do you have a tip on who will win May vs Leadsom, as being an inveterate gambler, quick money is always welcome, smiles )

There's some scathing reaction at https://twitter.com/hashtag/ProstSchG?src=hash

It seems to be universal across countries that the people who are being 'protected' have laws passed for their benefit which they do not want.
