child-abuse-rally.jpgHundreds of Jamaicans turned out for a mass rally in Westmoreland Friday to voice their support for the fight against child abuse.

In celebration of International Children's Day, droves of people from across western Jamaica, joined in a march against child abuse in Savannah-la-mar, Westmoreland. Students from across the parish, churches, service clubs, and business groups, all turned-out in solidarity for the march.

Some marched with placards, and banners, which read: "stop abusing children."

Supporters of the march stated that the role of the community is vital in advancing the initiative.

Others say, they are fed-up with the continued child abuse, especially since the brutal murder of 14-year-old Santoya Campbell, in the parish earlier this year.
