Occupying Public Spaces Jamaica

About The Event

As part of OBR events, persons will also spend part of the day occupying public spaces. Starting at 8:00 a.m. in Manor Park, then proceeding to a variety of landmarks throughout the corporate area, such as Half-Way Tree, Cross Roads, Heroes Circle, then Downtown to East Street, and on to the Institute of Jamaica where the official program of the day will begin. This occupation of public spaces will symbolize a collective call for justice throughout Jamaica. We are also asking all participants to wear red this Friday. Red will be a sign of solidarity as we all Rise for Justice in Jamaica and around the world.

About The Organization


Karen and Damali started Ennufff just over two years ago. Ennufff is a monthly Internet radio show hosted on Blog Talk Radio. To date, the show has garnered over 14,000 listeners. They also have loyal readers, followers and friends, who frequently visit the program’s blogs, Facebook, and Twitter pages. Ennufff (a patois version of the English word “enough”) was birthed from Karen and Damali’s personal experiences with sexual violence in Jamaica. Through these traumatic events, they started the process and journey to healing. Ennufff is part of this on-going journey. Raising awareness about sexual violence, and the impact on its victims/survivors, in Jamaica, throughout the Caribbean and the Diaspora, has become their mandate. Ennufff is a social media platform that gives a voice to this mandate. Karen and Damali want the world to know that they’ve had ennufff (enough) of violence against women and children. Therefore, Ennufff is platform to educate, empower, and heal.
