The Sex Workers' Freedom Festival, which was convened as an alternative to the Global AIDS Conference in Washington, recently wrapped up in Kolkata, India.
Thousands marched through the city in West Bengal to raise awareness after the Obama administration refused to give them visas to visit the United States.
They chanted such slogans as "Sex workers' rights are human rights" and "USA, shame on you".
