(en) el miliciano cnt-ait chiclana: Against prostitution unionism

Date Sat, 10 Aug 2019 11:53:19 +0300

The CCOO and CGT unions and, unfortunately, some of the CNT are considering opening union sections for "sex workers". These unions present themselves as defenders of the rights and freedoms of prostituted women and rise against all dissenting voices. They are progress who want to give the brothel a respectable bath. They start from the basis that they will fight for the rights of women who freely choose to sell their sexual freedom in exchange for money. ---- Eliminated women with addictions, those who have been victims and may have developed posttraumatic stress, those who have no other way to meet their vital needs and those of their loved ones, we understand that there will be a small group of women who freely and having other options At your fingertips, you have decided to engage in the sex industry. For this group of women, trade unionism should guarantee strict compliance with safety and health and occupational risk regulations that prevent the exercise of this "work" entailing risks to their physical integrity.

The same rules would have to be applied to them as to other professions dealing with biological fluids, such as saliva, blood, sweat, feces or urine. They should then defend that their affiliates provide their "services" with a mask, goggles, disposable overalls and gloves.

It would also be possible to ask these trade unionists with which employers they will negotiate the working conditions of these women and what type of collective bargaining they will display. Will they support the prostitution of pregnant women? How will they ensure that a woman prostituted in middle age, when her body, work instrument, is no longer sued, will not accept to participate in objectively denigrating acts such as being urinated, a practice that the sex industry offers in her "services" letter, against your own desire and exclusively out of necessity? How will they regulate sexual harassment?

On the other hand, these same trade unionists, what training and recycling courses are they going to offer to girls and young people to feed this sector?

It is an industry that affects the body of half humanity and debases the other media, potential buyer of human lives. Posts to open new union sections for when a beggars union? When does the seller of corneas and kidneys? If it is a matter of negotiating, not with the body but with the freedoms and rights, why not a union of vote sellers?

Trade unionism and prostitution system are irreconcilable, if analyzed with the heart and head, unless there are other parts of the body that carry the helm of decisions.

We remember what anarchist women have historically defended and that we support today, as yesterday:

"Prostitution houses are still crammed with red and black scarves and all kinds of anti-fascist badges. It is an incomprehensible moral inconsistency that our militiamen are in the rearguard that sustain and even extend bourgeois depravity in one of their most painful forms of slavery, the prostitution of women. It is not explained that spirits arranged in the trenches to all the sacrifices necessary to overcome in a war to the death ferment in the cities the humiliating purchase of human flesh of class and condition.

Fighters, it is not you, our own comrades, who hinder such difficult work with the behavior of young men. Help us make all women feel responsible for their human dignity. Do not continue to run over those who, as the only means of existence, have to endure your tyranny of buyers while we strive to find the best means of emancipating our lives.
