A parade of prostitutes and their clients aimed at naming and shaming sex workers in southern China has sparked a backlash by an unusual coalition of lawyers, academics and the All-China Women's Federation.

As part of a two-month crackdown on vice in the booming city of Shenzhen, public security officers handcuffed about 100 women and some of their male customers, dressed them in bright yellow prison tunics and hauled them through the streets.

The parade, which took place on November 29, attracted large crowds of curious onlookers.

Although the women tried to cover their faces with surgical masks, it was not enough to hide their identities because police revealed their names, hometowns and dates of birth while publicly sentencing them all to 15 days in prison.

In a sign of the increased consciousness of individual versus social rights, police were criticised for going too far.

"I think the parade is a violation of human rights," said Ai Xiaoming, a professor at Guangdong's Sun Yat-Set University. "The public humiliation may frighten people, but it is not a good way for resolving problems. And it is not fair - why are only sex criminals paraded in public? What about people guilty of graft and corruption?"

The All-China Women's Federation has filed a formal protest with the ministry of public security, saying the parade was "old-fashioned, damaging to social harmony" and "an insult to all the women in China".

There was a surge of critical comment on internet bulletin boards about the ethical problems of the punishment. Legal questions were also raised by Yao Jianguo of the Shanghai Promise Law Firm, who has written a letter of complaint to the National People's Congress in which he accused the police of acting illegally and violating human dignity.

The resurgence of the "skin-and-flesh" trade has become increasingly visible since the start of China's free market economic reforms in the late 1970s.

Among the most notorious centres are Shenzhen and Zhuhai - the biggest mainland cities near wealthy Hong Kong - where there are streets full of pink-lit karaoke centres and massage parlours.

Previous attempts to tackle the industry have had mixed results. Three years ago, the organisers of an orgy by more than 200 Japanese sex tourists and local prostitutes were sentenced to life imprisonment. Earlier this year, thousands of armed police were deployed in Shenzhen to quash a protest by more than 3,000 prostitutes and karaoke hostesses who were left without jobs after the closure of massage parlours and discos.

ackkk. everything is human rights to the them. i am so sick of it.

These people deserved to put in shame for the type of work they do. specially the "clients". They should notify their families.

however, I do think the Chinese government should go after the criminals that fostering the "meal" market.

Um duh, because countries are being founded on Human Rights now.

If you organize/protest such that human rights are withheld, we'll just be going backwards in history.

China has more problems to worry about than pushing for humility of the prostitution circle.

and whats up with these threads, I'm chinese but why are you throwing politics up here, are you trying to start a confrontation between Japanese + Chinese?

But isn't prostituion the lessest issue to be concerned?

I mean without these prostitues, there will be an increasing rise of raping cases?

The thieves and murders should be more concerned issues. ..

that's an excuse with the rape scenario. There is no way to get rid of that profession, but at least keep it at a minimal level.

Nowadays, you can go into a hairsalon or a therapy place can they turn into a whore house. They are like a convenient store one in every corner.
