Miami, Florida.- Hundreds of Dominicans of all ages took to the streets this Sunday in the city of Miami, and gathered in the Bayfront Park area to protest the suspension of municipal elections last February 16 in the DR and for the Plenary of the Central Electoral Board (JCE) to be replaced.

The protest called by community leaders began at 4:00 pm at John F. Kennedy Square, located on Biscayne Boulevard Street under the supervision of several police officers.

This activity, unprecedented in the Dominican community of South Florida, was marked by a massive presence of women and young people, who in the course of two hours sent slogans against the JCE, the PLD and the Government, finding echo in the passers-by who identified as a sign of support.

Glenda Galán, Dr. Ramón Ceballo, Tony Dandrades, Dr. Soraya Inverniza, Lic. Milquella Luciano, Aridio Genao, Isidro Barros, Gregorio Reyes, Yunis Segura, among others were present at the same.
