Commerce in San Francisco de Macoris closed down against tax printers
SAN FRANCISCO DE MACORIS. The strike called by the Dominican Federation of Merchants (FDC) against the installation of the fiscal printers was accepted by the majority of the merchants in the city of San Francisco de Macoris, as could be observed during a tour around the city. During the early hours, unknown, ski-masked persons set fire to tires and launched rubbish into the streets of some barrios.
In the meantime, in the central part of the city, commerce kept its doors closed, and only some fruit sellers were seen on some sidewalks and corners.
There was a discreet patrolling of the streets in the city in order to prevent any alteration of the public order by the demonstrators who tend to burn tires during strike days.
The work stoppage was also backed by the Fatherland for All Movement, the Broad Front of Popular Fight (FALPO) and other community organizations in the city.
Also in Nagua there were many establishments that joined in the protest against the Directorate General of Internal Taxes (DGII) which has already said that it would not close those places that did not install the printers or the cash registers.
The FDC also called for a closing of the commerce in Bani today in rejection of the fiscal printers which are required by the DGII.
