Welcome to Save Our Eyes. We campaign for changes in policy in the UK’s first official “managed zone” for prostitution.
The BBC3 documentary “Sex, drugs and murder” is filmed here. The residents of Holbeck in Leeds would like their voices to be heard and their photographs to be seen.
If you think the contents of this website are not fit for your children then imagine what it’s like for the kids of Holbeck & Beeston.
Please be aware that we live with the problems of the FIRST “managed zone”… the next one could be where you live!
“On Friday night at 6pm my friend was approached near the hairdressers. A man asked her if she was looking for business. She said no and continued walking . The man followed her asking if she was sure. He continued to follow her down Brown Lane.”
“3:30am on our street. Loud music being played in a car and a prostitute was giving oral sex to a punter. My neighbour told them to move on and they said “Why are you up at this time?”
“I drive through the area on my way to work. I regularly see women who look off their heads out prostituting at 8-8.30am. What a sad sight in this day and age.”
“Safer Leeds just can’t admit their experiment is a catastrophic failure. Everyone else knows it, but they just can’t bring themselves to admit they were, and still are, wrong about this.”
