Everyone who has visited us or (properly) visited the #Amsterdam #RedLightDistrict knows our statue #Belle on the Oudekerksplein.

But did you know there's a sculpture of a sex worker right on city Hall in Oslo, Norway?

Thank you @LauraAgustin 😍

De gemeente haalt alles uit de kast om de raambordelen op de Wallen te sluiten, terwijl de sekswerkers door de meeste bewoners helemaal niet als een probleem worden gezien. Ze willen minder bezoekers maar zijn niet transparant over de cijfers.
#Wallen #RLD #Amsterdam #Sekswerk

Zoveelste Parool pleidooi om de sekswerkers van de Wallen te gooien. En de sprekers willen de Wallen gentrificeren, hard nodig voor hun rust want in het weekend motten ze al naar hun 2e huis op de Veluwe. Oh ja, en Halsema regelt het voor ze #project1012
