2 Jun

On 2 June 1975, approximately 100 sex workers occupied Saint-Nizier Church in Lyon, France, to express their anger about their criminalised and exploitative living conditions. On 10 June at 5 o'clock the Church was brutally raided by police forces. This action sparked a national movement, and the day is now celebrated in Europe and around the world.
