Dominican Republic marks 50 years since Revolution

Santo Domingo.- Dominican Republic today Friday marks with various events the 50 years since the April 1965 Revolution, a civilian-military movement that sought the return to office of president Juan Bosch, overthrown by a coup in September 1963.

President Danilo Medina is slated to attend a mass in the Cathedral of America starting 11am, and walk from there to the National Pantheon to lay a wreath at the mausoleums of Revolution heroes Francisco Alberto Caamaño Deño and Col. Rafael Tomás Fernández Domínguez.

The official organizing commission also announced several events centered around El Conde street staring 9am, with students from schools throughout Greater Santo Domingo.
