Of the expulsion of the Haitian home invasion in our country. After the our independence from Spain in
81, in `822 the Haitian marched in to occupy our territory for 22 years during which many atrocities were committed against us. Long live our founding fathers, Duartes, Sanches y Mella.
Felicidades al pueblo de la Republica Dominicana!
That was independence from Spain, one of the most developed and prosperous countries in the world where most of Dominicans would love to move and live there now. It was a separation from the civilized world, a huge mistake. And then it fell under Haitian occupation which made the whole thing even worse. That’s how it was with this independence.
Spain is not prosperous, what are you smoking?
Your headline for this IMPORTANT NEW is the kind one misleading the REAL CONCEPT OF OUR INDEPENDENCE FROM TERRIBLE AND TEMPORARY HATIAN OCCUPATION ON OUR SPANIARD-INFLUENCED EASTERN SIDE OF LA HISPANIOLA…IT WASN’T “A SEPARATION” as we were never HISTORICALLY UNIFIED, NEVER WILL BE, due to very different etnias, RELIGIONS, languages, history, social CONCEPT AND CULTURES!
Occupation? Read my book.”Roadmap to…”. It was not an occupation but a military protectorate over the DR by Haiti, offered by Nunez de Caceres himself. Time to end the misinformation campaign. [email protected]
Happy independence day!
Time for Dominicans to learn about their Africanism
Full of black blood
