Prostitutes request for MORE window brothels in Amsterdam’s red light district, as they reject new mayor’s plans to move them from the notorious area – © blogfactory

Mayor Femke Halsema wants to close down the brothels and move them elsewhere in the city to end the bad treatment of sex workers and make residents safer.

‘Our research among 170 sex workers behind the windows showed clearly that 93 per cent of them do not want to move away from the red light district,’ said Romanian-born Anna.

‘From the four scenarios for sex workers, only number four is in our benefit,’ she said. ‘We don’t support the first three.’

She disputed the mayor’s claims that many women working in the red light district are vulnerable.
