Amnesty International UK are proposing to adopt a policy position which advocates for the decriminalisation of punters and pimps across the world. Further to this, a pimp who held a leadership role in the organisation is claiming that he was the instigator and driver of the policy. Amnesty is currently consulting with members and other groups about the proposed policy. If you would like to take part in the consultation by opposing Amnesty’s support of pimps and punters rights, please come along and show your opposition on March 8th.
The 8th of March is International Women’s Day and Million Women Rise in the UK. We are organising this protest to take place after the Million Women Rise march (and immediately before the after party) at the London Amnesty head office, which is only a 20 minute walk from the MWR after party, so women can protest and then head to the after party afterwards.
