Some Cape Town sex workers on Saturday said they were continuously harassed by police.
A group of sex workers marched through the streets of Bellville to mark International Sex Worker Rights Day.
The march was organised by Sex Workers Education and Advocacy Taskforce (Sweat) and the crowd called on government to decriminalise sex work.
One woman said life on the streets was tough.
“Police are harassing us. We are marching today because we want them to stop what they are doing. We want them to realise that we’re also human,” she said.
Another sex worker said police needlessly harass them.
“They hit us, rape us, and ask for sex favours from us,” she said.
