17 december is International Day to End Violence against Sex Workers. Usually we organise a march or other protest in Amsterdam for this day.
But because our founder Mariska Majoor will open her exhibit ‘United Under a Red Umbrella’ in Utrecht that day, we decided to move our protest to that city this year.
We will gather at Amsterdam CS at 13.30, at the piano (take the stairs close to the Amstelpassage towards track 2b). Please be on time, we will take the 14.05 train to Utrecht. There we will wait at the Jaarbeursezijde (close to the city hall) until 15.00, so people from other parts of the country can join us. At 15.15 we will start our march towards the Janskerkhof.
The exhibition ‘United Under a Red Umbrella’ will be festively opened at 4 p.m. with a speech by Mariska and a panel discussion where there will be room for questions and debate. Afterwards there is music with a snack and a drink. PROUD will be present with an “Ask a Sex Worker” booth.
‘United under a Red Umbrella’ was invited to Utrecht University on the initiative of Re-Imagining Sex Work and in collaboration with the Willem Pompe Institute of Criminal Law. The exhibition can be seen until January 15, 2020 during the usual opening hours of Janskerkhof 3 in Utrecht.
