This is the message i want to share with the world as we all convene for the United Nations World Tourism Summit jointly hosted by Zimbabwe and Zambia. I want the world to know that as sex workers we are totally against human trafficking that we demand the world leaders to act and put an end to it.
we want the world to know that Creating the legal, political and social conditions that are inhospitable to human trafficking and affording women and children real economic alternatives is how we end human trafficking. We must oppose State policies and practices that channel women into conditions of sexual exploitation. Providing education and employment opportunities that promote women's equality diminishes women’s vulnerability to human trafficking.
The most effective policies are ones that discourage the purchase of human beings for commercial sexual exploitation, and their strategic role in the chain of human trafficking. An effective fight against trafficking means taking legal action against the buyers and anyone who promotes sexual exploitation, particularly pimps, procurers and traffickers.
As women, as sex workers we say, WHEN THE SMOKE THUNDERS AT THE VICTORIA FALLS ON THE 24 OF AUGUST WE SHALL BE THERE TO SAY QAPHELA! I AM NOT FOR SALE!
