Valencia, Sep 22 (EFE).- Several dozen supporters of the Abolitionist Front of the Valencian Country demonstrated this morning to denounce that Valencia is becoming “a paradise for pimps in the face of the passivity of the authorities” and demanded that the Valencian government to take action to end prostitution.
The protesters denounced that since the city council joined the Network of Free Municipalities of Trafficking and Prostitution in 2019, no abolitionist measures have been taken.
On the eve of the International Day Against Sexual Exploitation and Trafficking of Women, Girls and Boys, the spokesperson for the Abolitionist Front of the Valencian Country, Puri Lietor, denounced the lowering of the age of prostitution .
“Now there are minors who go alone to prostitution, because it is easily accessible”, and assured that despite the approval of a municipal ordinance aimed at abolishing prostitution, no action has been taken.
Lietor also appealed and asked the leaders “not to think of themselves as abolitionists of prostitution but to do nothing about it”, as he pointed out that despite the fact that there are many websites that show this that is done inside the exploitation centers of prostitution, the government does not react.
“The only abolitionist ministry is that of Justice and it is headed by a woman abolitionist, Gabriela Bravo, because she is the only one who has bothered to report and assess the situation that exists in a brothel , because despite the fact that it is also a matter of public health, the Ministry of Health has not done anything,” he stressed.
