WA Sex Worker Rally – Television Coverage

Despite a regulatory regime hostile to sex workers, making many reluctant to join public protest more than 37 sex workers and supporters gathered at Perth Parliament on the 18th of May 2013 to protest proposed changes to sex industry laws in Western Australia. The Barnett Government’s proposed changes would not only further discrimination against sex workers, but if implemented make Western Australia the most dangerous place in Australia, for sex workers to work.

Local sex worker organisation People for Sex Worker Rights in Western Australia organised the protest and a member of PSR-WA later recorded the broadcast news footage of the protest off of television (three stations had sent news crews).
