Dominicans mark the end of their darkest nightmare

Santo Domingo.- The Dominican people today May 30 mark their Day of Freedom, and the 51st anniversary of the execution of dictator Rafael Trujillo, the culmination of a vast conspiracy by various political and military groups, close collaborators of the tyrant among them.

Though the plotters managed to eliminate their main target, the planned political actions failed, leading to the capture and later execution of the conspirators.

To carry out the execution the group learned of Trujillo’s visits to his native town every Wednesday, and corralled him in his car in a hail of bullets on the seaside road today called 30 de Mayo highway to mark the event.
