Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
A loud but peaceful demonstration demanding Justice for Martha, the slain 32-year-old mother of one whose murder by a client is unsolved, also provides an occasion for discussing the general abuse of rights of women who support themselves and their families by selling sexual services. The murder took place in a popular nightclub patronized largely by white tourists. The disrespect and abuses are all around, however.
