Industries call recent protests unjustified vandalism
Santo Domingo.- Dominican Republic’s industries grouped in the AIRD on Thursday called the recent protests across the country vandalism, affirming that there’re no situations in the towns to justify such demonstrations.
AIRD president Ligia Bonetti and vice president Circe Almanzar said the protests in various parts of the country haven’t harmed the economy. “They protest, but in fact it’s more noisy that are causing violence are not really crippling the economy.
They are protests of vandalism that are causing violence and have no reason for being,” Almanzar told reporters in the National Palace.
Bonetti said to be meaningful, any proposal has to have a reason and must be peaceful, “because what we in fact do is send a signal of vandalism from groups who want to fish in troubled waters.”
They said the protests against Barrick Gold, as well as the violence at the Santo Domingo State University (UASD) “are things which aren’t linked to one another.”
Almanzar and Bonetti met with Presidency chief of staff Gustavo Montalvo in the National Palace, to coordinate the next session aimed at striking agreements for major changes in laws and other key measures to spur productive sectors.
