The poetry reading by prostitutes scheduled for manday evening at Taman Ismail Marzuki was cancelled after the Jakarta Arts’ Council chairwoman protested.

The chairwoman, Toeti Herati, in a letter dated July 28, said that F. Rahardi, the sponsor, wanted to exploit prostitutes in literature by involbing them in the poetry reading. She added that the performance would also have a negative  psychological impact on the audience.

Inresponse to the chairwoman’s letter, Rahardi, in a letter which he read before the oudience that night, stated that he could not accept the chairwoman’s argument, and insisted that prostitutes had the same rights as anyone else.

He also confirmed thet he will ask for Rp 1.563.000 in compensation.
