The occupation of Saint - Nizier church by Lyon prostitutes refers to the ten-day occupation of the Saint-Nizier Church in Lyon by more than a hundred prostitutes on 2 June to draw attention to their inhumane working conditions. Sympathetic occupations of churches by prostitutes followed in Paris , Marseille , Grenoble , Saint-Étienne and Montpellier.
In the s, French police kept sex workers under increasing pressure. The police reprisals  forced sex workers to work increasingly in secret. As a result, protection of sex workers decreased and led to more violence against them. In April , the Lyon prostitutes started to organise themselves and their leader, "Ulla" appeared on television to publicise the women's demands.
On 2 June more than prostitutes occupied the Saint-Nizier church in rue de Brest and went on strike. The occupation made national headlines and was reported internationally. Local people supported the woman and brought clothes and food. The occupation received support from political, union and feminist organisations. The parish priest, the Rev. Antonin Bdal, refused to call the police to remove the women. The event marks the starting point of an international movement of sex workers for sex workers' rights.
The occupation is remembered every year on 2 June as International Whores' Day. A journalist working for Libération , Claude Jaget, followed the occupation. In addition to his articles in Libération, he later published a book: Une vie de putain. In , a play, Loveless , written by Anne Buffet and Yann Dacosta, an adaptation of the book, Une vie de putain ,  was enacted at the National Dramatic Center of Normandy-Rouen  it was also staged in Lyon at the Théâtre des Célestins in From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
