SWOP'S GATHERING OF PUBLIC DATA ON SEX WORKERS

Edward Snowden revealed there is an intentional campaign going to gather data on people for the purposes of "pushing" on them by the CIA, and other agencies.  Anyone who has seen his film is aware of what's going on.

Which would explain why SWOP is not acting like a group "by sex workers for sex workers" since Robin Few, their founder, died in 2012.  While our 12 step program has undergone extreme viscious attack by members of SWOP, and their new "leadership" seems to act like we're not members of the sex worker community any longer for some reason despite the fact we operate the only hotline in the country where sex workers who want help to exit the industry can call for help without fear of any of their information being disclosed to anyone, especially law enforcement, they decided to try and set up their own version of a 12 step meeting for sex workers in Las Vegas.  You can see how they advertise this meeting online which courts have ruled is the same as a "public notice" by the way.


Thus rendering this meeting the same as if held in a "public place".  Which if you look at the actual meeting place ala Google map photos - it really is:


Since there is a public sidewalk in front of the place, anyone can park their car or stand there and film who pulls into that parking lot.  It's small enough it can't be argued that on a Saturday morning, when the other business's are closed there in that center, that the person is there for one reason and one reason only - the SWOP 12 step meeting.  So the person, car and license plate can be videotaped without the party's consent.

The law also states that anyone who does "not take steps" to make something "confidential" also waives any right to privacy.  A "12 step meeting" by the way does not have the same laws of confidentiality a "12 step program" does.  Our program, Sex Workers Anonymous, is a "12 step program" recognized officially by our government as a 501c3 and with approval from AA to adapt it's steps given to us in writing to do so.  

I have asked around some of the "old timers" in AA and NA in Las Vegas and they have no idea who is running this meeting.  Being I've sponsored sex workers, and ex-sex workers, in recovery for over 30 years total, with having done so in Vegas since 1996, I would think I'd hear about someone in the rooms starting this meeting.

So why?  Why would anyone ask someone to expose themselves to possibly being photographed legally in such a manner as to invite them to come to this meeting?  The profile for this meeting was created in December of 2016 and does not state what person is hosting this meeting.  

I take a lot of shit for being who I am, but you KNOW who I am behind our meeting.  You know I was a sex worker, I'm a person, I'm a person who has gone to great lengths to ensure the anonymity of our members, and I've refused money to give information on our members to law enforcement.  That's what you KNOW when you contact www.sexworkersanonymous.com is that a real ex-sex worker in recovery for 30 years is going to be there to help you when you call. 

There is no person standing behind this meeting that I can see.  I see a profile which wasn't opened until December of 2016 and that's it.  At least when people are "bashing" me - I'm a REAL PERSON.  I'm a bona fide ex-sex worker who has also been in recovery for 30 years.  You KNOW that.  I'm not a "catfish" profile either set up to gather information on sex workers which by the way SWOP has confirmed they are sending the data onto the government when they do their "tax returns" or explain "who they gave their grant money to".  Savannah Sly is also no longer their director.

So who and why would they ask sex workers in Las Vegas to do this?
