German Sex Worker Organisation BesD responds to Bundesrat Resolution about Prostitution Act Reform

In 2002 Germany enacted the Prostitution Reform Act with the aim of strengthening the social and legal rights of sex workers.  On 11th April 2014, the Bundesrat, the Upper House of the German Parliament, called for further debate on the sex work laws and proposed a number of new measures.  German sex worker organisation BesD, Trade Association Erotic and Sexual Services, has issued a statement in response, expressing deep concern over some of the suggested reforms.
