Protesting HBO

Over their “documentary,”  Cathouse:

A picket line will be in place at 42nd Street and Sixth Avenue at the Manhattan headquarters of HBO (1100 Sixth Avenue) on Thursday, April 24th between 12:30pm and 2:30pm. The reason for the protest is the HBO reality show Cathouse – The Series, which is set in a brothel in Nevada. As explained by Norma Ramos, Co-Executive Director of the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women, and the originator of this action, “HBO is creating a culture of acceptance of sexual exploitation, and it needs to take responsibility for that.”
