English Collective of Prostitutes - "Safety First"

The ECP is holding an event on Wednesday, 11 July at 4:00-5:30 PM at the House of commons called Safety First:
The tragic murders of five young women in Ipswich have brought us together as individuals and organisations concerned with women´s and children´s safety in the area and elsewhere. There is an unprecedented outcry of never again from many who have understood that women are made vulnerable by legislation which criminalizes them, by lack of support, resources and appropriate health treatment, by lack of viable economic alternatives, by violent men being allowed to get away with attacks so they attack again and again.

We are determined that value judgements over the way women live their lives – either because they are sex workers, addicted to drugs, or for any other reason – must never again be an excuse to deny protection. Everyone in our community deserves to be safe from attack, regardless of their occupation, sexual preference, race, age, nationality or lifestyle
