Black Friday March Against Rape
Jamaicans were urged to join women’s organisations and wear black on September 28 to take a stand against rape and the sexual abuse of women and girls. They were also being asked to stand at public places across Jamaica, including the Half-Way-Tree, St. Andrew. The action was spurred by the rape of five females, including an eight-year-old in Irwin St. James on September 24, 2012, as well as the continuous abuse of an 11-year-old girl, allegedly by her grand uncle.
