According to the sex workers’ group Strass, since the debate on the criminalization of clients, sex workers are increasingly marginalized and insecure. And therefore potentially at risk.

Strass denounces increased violence against French prostitutes

Since the debate on the bill on the criminalization of clients, there have been increased attacks against prostitutes, said the union of sex work (Strass) Monday, in a statement denouncing the death of a Chinese prostitute in Paris in early April.

On the night of March 31 to April 1, Strass reports, a Chinese prostitute was killed with a knife by a client in a Paris apartment. “His assailant was known to be a ‘bad customer’ whom she would have refused if she had the means. But she was unable to work for several days, due to constant police operations targeting Chinese women, and was therefore unable to take the time to screen and choose her customers, “says the union.

“This is symptomatic of the endangerment of sex workers, endangerment which increased following the media coverage of the bill to penalize customers,” says the union. With this text, already adopted by the National Assembly, “we see an increase in assaults of sex workers,” said Strass.

During the assault, the Chinese victim’s colleagues heard screams but “were afraid to call the police because they were undocumented. Their distrust of the police is a direct consequence of particularly intense police harassment suffered by Chinese sex workers for several months,” insists Strass.

The police harassment has been repeatedly denounced by Médecins du monde (Doctors of the World), which helps Chinese prostitutes in Paris.

“A force to consider prostitution as violence in itself, as an activity at the edge of legality, wanting to govern by ever more repressive laws, label migrants as undesirable public policy presenting sex workers […] as ideal targets for attackers who believe it is okay to attack people who have no rights anyway,” wrote Strass.

As I’ve mentioned before, the ugly backside of the big anti-prostitution push in the EU is racism. It’s a vile alliance between the extreme left and the extreme right. The former wants to get rid of all sex workers while the latter would be satisfied to get rid of all the non-white ones.

This, of course, is never discussed by the bloating punditry backing these repressive measures.
