Members of popular organizations protested with the burning of tires in communities in Duarte and Espaillat provinces, demanding the repair of streets and roads.

In the municipal district of Canca la Reina, Espaillat province, demanding from the Ministry of Public Works the continuation of the asphalting works of its roads.

The demonstration arose after a patana of the government institution showed up to remove the asphalting equipment from that town without finishing the work.

Residents of communities such as El Pico, La Chicharra, and Las Canas, among others, are waiting for the paving plan to reach them.

Residents in these rural localities understand that it is an injustice that these types of equipment are taken out of La Reina without completing the work.
