Santo Domingo East residents stage a carnival to demand a subway line
Santo Domingo.- Dozens of protesters from various sectors of Santo Domingo East staged a veritable carnival and marching bands in front of Congress Tuesday morning, to demand that the Government find the funds to continue the construction of the Santo Domingo Metro’s second subway line.
The novel and impressive showing also included dozens of cheerleaders, dancers and other personifications related to the country’s traditional Carnival.
Protest spokesman Julio Cesar Morillo said they want the Metro beyond the mall Megacentro as the town mayor Juan de los Santos suggested, and instead asked to extend the line to the town of San Luis, in Greater Santo Domingo’s eastern limits, “whose inhabitants really need it.”
“We want a subway to Santo Domingo East,” ”Members of Congress from our town the mothers cannot pay bus fare,” and “We trust in God and then Danilo,” “Mr. Danilo build our subway,” said the banners.
