Dominicans mark a day in infamy

Santo Domingo.- Dominicans mark a day in infamy today, when in 1959 a group of expeditionaries arrived aboard two boats in Maimon and Estero Hondo, Puerto Plata, in a desperate effort to topple Latin America’s bloodiest dictatorship, headed by Rafael Trujillo.

June 14 also marks the the death of Ernesto Che Guevara, assassinated June 14, 1967 in Bolivia.

The Heroes of Maimon, Constanza and Estero Hondo will host several ceremonies to mark the day which heralded the downfall of the Trujillo Era.
