    The guards will love it though. They won't have to spend so much time on catching really dangerous crims. With the tax, insurance checkpoints, and catching fellows driving with a few pints in them, and testing for pot usage they'll have their hands full. Bringing back the 1950s where most of the politicos minds are stuck.

    The Red Blueshirt youth branch actually started the ball rolling with this wonderful Scandanavian Progressive Liberal Legislation initially!
    Obviously a lot of fúckwits are present throughout that organisation as of course there are in The Blueshirts and Eff EFf!

    With our treacherous trade union movement making complete and utter stomach churning ass holes out of themselves once again by supporting the sex worker hating legislation, an interesting resource has been released by ICRSE, The International Committee on Sex Workers' Rights in Europe, on understanding sex work as what it is WORK!

    ICRSE launches new resource 'Understanding sex work as work: a brief guide for labour rights activists' | Sex Work Europe

    http://www.sexworkeurope.org/sites/d..._e-version.pdf

    "Among all those selling their labour power, sex workers are denied recognition as workers and either directly or indirectly criminalised. If sex workers are to enjoy fair and just working conditions and the ability to defend themselves against exploitation, sex work needs to be fully decriminalised and treated as legitimate economic activity. This briefing paper..... is intended as an introduction to sex workers’ rights from a labour rights perspective. The resources can be used as an advocacy tool for trade unionists and labour rights activists, including sex workers’ rights activists."

    Surely, sex workers are as deserving of any group of workers to the protection of their rights in the workplace and human rights!
    Obviusly the minister for justice and the Irish Trade Union movement don't think so!

    An article from The Circular with a general overview from a few of those of all views in the debate -

    "The sex industry is in political limbo: The debate that rages on outside mainstream politics – Interviews with Ruhama, Sex Workers Alliance Ireland and GOSHH"

    Relieved to see in between the hobby horse riders GOSHH seem to have everything laid out the way it is...

    I had to bully SWAII (and most independent workers) to prevent them throwing street workers under the bus by abandoning them to (proposed) draconian legislation and the non-existent mercies of Ruhama - that was rescinded, but it is still not possible for anyone to provide resources as nobody has made it possible for them to speak for themselves. I did my best but I am autistic, I have to take the nature of "normal life" on trust most of the time. I know what street workers don't want, and I seem to know more than anyone what they DO NOT NEED...but I don't have a clue what they do need until they are allowed to speak.

    (Ruhama claim survival sex workers want and need Ruhama and the Nordic model. Al Qaeda claim Syria wants and needs Islamic extremism...spot the points of similarity in these statements.).

    Still no word on any arrests, even though this was passed as a vital more or less emergency type of law! Thankfully, no deaths that we know of, have resulted yet, either!

    These comments by GOSHH, which is state funded, admit sex workers working indoors remain criminalised and expresses concerns they consequently may resort to more risk taking.

    It is my understanding that the Nordic Model decriminalises the selling of sex completely. In Ireland we have only decriminalised the selling of sex on the streets. Indoor workers, who are still essentially criminals, and will be the target of any Gardaí operations to find buyers of sex, may have their income drastically impacted. These are the people who will do what they can to re-market their product and stay on track. I am concerned that this might mean that some will feel they need to take risks in order to achieve their goals in life.

    It's the Merciful Catholic nation which strips prostitutes off their humanity and dignity. It's a disgrace.
