In 2015 NCOSE launched the “No Amnesty 4 Pimps” campaign to oppose Amnesty International’s looming adoption of a policy in favor of fully decriminalizing prostitution.
Amnesty International claims to “campaign for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all.” Yet, decriminalization of brothel-keeping and soliciting is a gift to pimps, sex traffickers, and sex buyers that confers a right to buy and sell other human beings. Such policies do not protect the human rights of persons in prostitution, but guarantee that their dehumanization and exploitation will continue.
Unfortunately, since the launch of this campaign, Amnesty International has adopted the policy document which calls for fully decriminalizing prostitution. You can learn more about our on-going efforts regarding Amnesty International at endsexualexploitation.org/noamnesty.
