Violence in all forms is UNACCEPTABLE!

In a disgraceful tirade in January 2018, Jamaica Labour Party Councillor for the Montego Bay West Division, David Q Brown, verbally assaulted a young woman via text messaging. 

After receiving several explicit death wishes and degrading remarks about her health (she suffers from stage 3 Crohn's disease), being ridiculed about her deceased mother & brother, and suffering Councillor Brown's discriminatory remarks about her race, skin colour and social class, Kimberly Wright, finally went public with her story in a public appeal for protection against his verbal abuse and cyberbullying. 

The PNP Womens Movement stands with Kimberly Wright, and we denounce ALL forms of abuse against women - verbal, physical, psychological/emotional, financial and sexual. 

Anyone who abuses women, disregards and disrespects them and who admits to seeing someone as beneath and inferior, should not be in public office where they are expected to advocate for policies that protect and empower women and men!

We condemn the actions of the Montego Bay West Councillor and we are calling on the St. James Municipal Corporation to institute disciplinary proceedings against the Councillor, David Q Brown. 

Let us work together to assure the citizens that this kind of behavior will not be accepted and let us demonstrate to women and girls everywhere that they have a right to be free from abuse and that there is protection if their rights are violated.
