New civic movement against impunity called for 22 February 2017
The organizers of the 22 January 2017 March Against Impunity are again revving the population to forcefully overcome its traditional tolerance to corruption impunity and participate in the Journey for National Mobilization for the End of Impunity. The group demands that Dominican government officials who accepted bribes from Odebrecht be penalized as well as the return of the money stolen from the Dominican people due to the payment of bribes and deliberately inflating the cost of public works projects. The next activity for peaceful protests is called simultaneously in the 32 provinces of the country for this coming, Wednesday, 22 February 2017.
“Let us deck in green all the streets of our country, with each of us wearing green on that day or displaying green flags on our cars, homes, businesses and every way possible to show our collective indignation,” says the group in a press release.
On Sunday, 12 February 2017, the movement organizers will announce how many citizens have already signed the Green Book Against Impunity (Libro Verde). There are some 150 Puntos Verdes, or green spots nationwide, where the citizens can sign their name to the petition that calls for an end to impunity.
