To mark International Sex Worker Rights Day, Cape Town sex workers are marching through the streets of Bellville.
Organised by rights group Sex Workers Education and Advocacy Taskforce (Sweat), the crowd of mostly women, is calling for the decriminalisation of sex work.
Armed with placards and whistles, the group of sex workers, says they are harassed by police officers almost daily.
They say the criminalisation of sex work has forced them to live in fear.
They are voicing their concerns, but many sex workers are wearing masks to hide their identities.
One woman says she was stripped and forced into a police van.
The Bellville sex worker says she was kept in holding cells overnight, but never charged.
Her story and the concerns of many other sex workers has been summarised in a memorandum of grievances, which will be handed over to police, at the end of the march.
