Free sex to defend trade!

After Copenhagen Mayor Ritt Bjerregaard issued postcards to city hotels warning summit guests not to entertain Danish sex workers during the upcoming conference, the prostitutes struck back by offering free sex to anyone who produces one of the warnings.
Copenhagen’s city council in conjunction with Bjerregaard sent postcards out to 160 Copenhagen hotels urging COP15 guests and delegates to ‘Be sustainable – don’t buy sex’.

“Dear hotel owner, we would like to urge you not to arrange contacts between hotel guests and prostitutes,” a news website quoted the notice to hotel owners as saying.

But Copenhagen prostitutes, who are saying that the council has no business meddling in their affairs, did not meet the move with favour.

According to the Web site, they have now offered free sex to anyone who can produce one of the offending postcards and their COP15 identity card.

According to the report, the move has been organized by the Sex Workers Interest Group (SIO)

“This is sheer discrimination. Ritt Bjerregaard is abusing her position as Lord Mayor in using her power to prevent us carrying out our perfectly legal job,” SIO Spokeswoman Susanne Moller said.

“I don’t understand how she can be allowed to contact people in this way,” she added.

Moller adds that it is reprehensible and unfair that Copenhagen politicians have chosen to use the UN Climate Summit as a platform for a hetz against sex workers.

“But they’ve done it and we have to defend ourselves,” Moller stated.
