Join Virtual Protest of Amnesty International on January 30th

Amnesty is calling for decriminalization of prostitution. According to Amnesty, “The criminalisation of voluntary sex between adults, whether for direct monetary gain or otherwise, threatens the rights to health, non-discrimination, equality, privacy, and security of person.”

A Virtual Protest of Amnesty International is taking place on Twitter:

On the Sunday the 29th of January, a visual campaign started on Twitter from @invisblechoice (The Invisible Men project), using the hashtag #QuestionsForAmnesty to draw attention to this leaked document from Amnesty International: http://www.scribd.com/doc/202126121/Amnesty-Prostitution-Policy-document – as exposed by Julie Bindel here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2544983/JULIE-BINDEL-An-abject-inversion-principles.html

Here are the images made for the campaign that you’ll have seen circulating: www.protest-resources.tumblr.com
