Sosua’s beach bar and shop owners protest
Wednesday, furious owners of many beach shops, restaurants and bars went to the passageway along the beach. Workers are busy constructing curbs along the road, on the order of the city council.
The entrepreneurs of the beach protest against these curbs, the say the visitors to the beach, usually arrive by bus or car but can not park anymore along the road by the high sidewalks. On the weekends hundreds of people from Santiago and La Vega visit the beach of Sosúa. They arrive in Sosúa by bus or car. The beach entrepreneurs fear, these visitors will stay away from the beach. During the protest, the emotions ran high and some hotheads trampled the formwork for the curbs. They blame Ilana Neumann to prepare their downfall because many owners resisted in the past to co-operate in the development plans of the Municipality for the beach.
