Description

The outcome of the sex worker pre-conference meeting World Aids Conference 2014 attended by sex workers from more than 30 countries. This part of video is statement for Migration and mobility This video was temporary hosted on this vimeo for immediate distribution. 4. Migration and mobility Detention of sex workers increases HIV risk. Sex work is work – migrant sex workers choose to work just like other sex workers. We are not victims. We are not trafficked! Don’t ignore the evidence. Being sex workers should not limit our right to migrate. Restricting our movement restricts our access to treatment, care and support. We oppose the mandatory testing of migrant workers upon arrival, and the denial of visas based on serostatus. We don’t need your pity. We need our rights.
