Launch of Irish campaign ’Prostitution: We don’t buy it’

[Dublin, 23 April 2015] On 23 April, Dublin saw the launch of a new campaign to raise awareness on prostitution: We Don’t Buy It is the first all-Ireland campaign asking men and boys to make a stand against sex trafficking and prostitution. Most men have never bought sex or paid for sex and they never will. They don’t buy sex and they don’t buy the lies we tell ourselves, the myths we pretend are true and the awkward justifications we allow ourselves to believe.

The campaign – backed by the Republic’s Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald and Northern Ireland Justice Minister David Ford – is the first all-island campaign asking men and boys to oppose the sex trade and trafficking.

It focuses on getting ordinary people to back the “We Don’t Buy It” slogan by saying they do not buy sex and do not buy lies that allow it to continue.

Watch two videos: Tom Meagher, from the Men’s Development Network, launching the campaign, and sex trade survivor Rachel Moran.
