March in MoBay against sexual violence
KINGSTON, Jamaica - National security minister, Peter Bunting, will join the tomorrow’s national protest march against sexual violence, particularly among women and children.
Bunting will be at the Sam Sharpe Square in Montego Bay, St James, the parish where five harrowing rapes including that of an eight-year-old girl, took place.
People are being encouraged to wear black as a mark of protest which is being led by Women's Inc, with the full endorsement of both the Government and the Opposition.
As part of the protest, members of the public are being asked to "stand" at public places, including the Half-Way-Tree clock tower, at 10:00am Friday.
"Persons who will not be able to attend can still participate in the protest by observing two minutes of silence at 10:00am in their workplaces and in their homes," a release from Jamaica House said.
