Hamburg sex workers picket demanding to open brothels

Hamburg sex workers staged a demonstration demanding to open brothels after quarantine

This was reported by Reuters.

On Saturday, July 11, sex workers staged a protest in Hamburg. They took to the streets in masks on their faces with posters: “United Europe – one law”, “We attract your tourists to dear Germany” and others.

Women claim that their place of work is not more dangerous than shops, restaurants and bars, whose work has already been resumed.

“Prostitution does not carry a greater risk of infection than other services related to the body: massage, cosmetics, or even dancing or contact sports,” the Sex Workers Association said in a statement.

Sex workers also claim that closing licensed premises forces them to go outside and make money illegally. In addition, it is unhygienic and very dangerous.
