I am very distressed to hear that elements within the Green Party are seeking to remove the party's support for the Nordic model where the trafficking and purchasing of sex is criminalized while girls and women who are being prostituted are treated as victims not criminals...

The commodification of human beings defines neoliberal economics. The decriminalization of the prostitution industry, as we have seen in countries such as Germany, is one more step towards a neoliberal world order where everyone and every act has a price.

Legalizing the prostitution industry does not protect or empower girls and women. It expands and normalizes their exploitation.

If it is wrong to physically and emotionally abuse girls and women in sweatshops why isn't it wrong to physically and emotionally abuse girls and women in the prostitution industry?

The left needs to build a world where poverty and desperation no longer force the destitute into the hands of pimps and traffickers. It does not need to become the allies of these human vultures.

If abandons its commitment to the Nordic model & calls for legalizing the prostitution industry, an industry that traffics & preys upon poor girls & women of color in the developing world to satisfy the lusts of mostly white men in the industrialized world...
