Porn is toxic

Members of London Feminist Network have formed a new subgroup of LFN to specifically campaign against the pornfication of society and raise awareness of the harm caused by porn.

We have organised a protest on Sunday 22 September: Porn is Toxic.

All women welcome.

XBIZ EU, a four-day pornography industry conference, will take place at the Radisson Bloomsbury Hotel from September 22-25. Here, representatives will network and discuss ways of spreading their toxic pornographic content onto more accessible devices.

Pornography degrades women. It puts women involved in the making of it at high risk of physical and psychological damage . It gives the men who watch it a harmful view of women and relationships. It can encourage male violence against women.

In short, it is toxic. This is why women from the London Feminist Network will protest Sunday, September 22 at the Radisson Bloomsbury. We protest against the damage pornography does to women and question how a major hotel can play host to this poisonous industry that uses women’s bodies to make vast amounts of money.

Details of the protest:

Gather at 3.30pm on Sunday 22 Sept. Meet in Bloomsbury Square Gardens (meet at the Great Russell St side of the park). Please note this protest is women only.

Protest to take place outside the Radisson Edwardian Bloomsbury Street Hotel, 9–13 Bloomsbury Street, London WC1B 3QD

Please note this is a women only protest.

Why women only?

We have chosen to organise this as a women only protest. As women we need to be at the forefront of the movement for women’s rights and therefore we need safe, collective spaces where we can organise, share our experiences, learn from each other and support one another. For this issue in particular, we feel it is important for women to stand together against a male led industry. We want to raise awareness of the harm caused to women by porn, in particular those women in pornography, and women as a group whose lives are so frequently negatively affected by pornography.

If you are a man and you would like to contribute to this protest, you can support us by raising awareness through twitter, facebook etc. We would support any men who would like to set up a separate protest or vigil whilst we are protesting.
