Miranda: More protests warned, Police want talks with radical priest
Santo Domingo.- Political and social activists rallied peacefully Sunday and warned of continuing protests to defend Loma Miranda, just one week after president Danilo Medina vetoed legislation to create a national park in the contested site.
The priests Rogelio Cruz and Nino Ramos issued the warning during an activity in a campsite the protesters built at El Algarrobo, La Vega (central), which is part of Loma Miranda, together with leaders of other social groups.
Leftist leader Narciso Isa said when it comes to the country’s natural resources, the Government doesn’t have the authority to negotiate areas that should be protected. "There was no reason for the veto, either Miranda is declared a national park or the island will sink."
Police wants “talk” withCruz
Deputy National Police chief Alejandro Dipré yesterday said he’s trying to locate his "friend" Cruz to talk about the protests regarding Loma Miranda, since "there’re some things that we might know and he recognizes it."
