Statue til ære for sexarbejdere i hele verdenen – 31 marts!!!

29 03 2007


2nd annual Open Day in Amsterdam’s Red Light District and the unveiling of a new statue in honour of sex workers everywhere!

On Saturday March 31st the 2nd annual  open day in the Red Light District of Amsterdam will take place from noon to 6pm (18:00).

The goal of the day is to give people a better image of the diversity of the red light area by offering them a look behind closed doors. Sex businesses, churches, residents, artists and others that have something to do with the neighbourhood are available on this day to talk to the public. Of course many people are interested in the sex industry and just like last year there will no doubt be long line-ups again in front of the live sex theatres Casa Rosso and the Banana Bar.

At 5pm (17:00) on the Oudekerksplein by the Old Church a bronze statue will be unveiled honouring everyone around the world who works in the sex industry. The statue is a message to society, a call for respect but also a message to sex workers, namely this: “you have the right to be proud of yourself, feel strong and independent and fight for your human rights.”

The statue is an initiative of Mariska Majoor founder of the Prostitution Information Centre in Amsterdam. She will unveil the statue together with (former) sex workers.

All sex workers – also international – who want to participate at the unveiling are welcome. 

If you have questions please email the PIC:


Lørdag den 31 marts afholdes den 2 årlige “open day” i Amsterdams Red Light District fra kl 12 – 18.00.

Dagens mål er at give besøgende et bedre billede af nuancerne i Red Light Distriktet ved at tilbyde folk at komme indenfor de lukkede døre.

Kl 17.00 vil Mariska afsløre en bronze statue som skal ære alle i hele verdenen som arbejder i sex industrien.

Statuen er en besked til samfundet, et opråb om respekt men også en besked til sexarbejdere : Du har ret til at være stolt af dig selv, ret til at føle dig stærk og selvstændig og kæmp for dine rettigheder!

Initiativtageren til statuen er Mariska Majoor, som også har grundlagt PIC Prostitution Information Center i Amsterdam. Mariska vil afsløre statuen sammen med andre sexarbejdere.

Alle sexarbejdere – også internationale – der har lyst til at deltage i afsløringen af statuen til ære for sexarbejdere er hjertellig velkomne.
