Dominican Bus Drivers Cancel Planned Protest over Fuel Prices

SANTO DOMINGO The Fenatrano union representing Dominican bus drivers suspended a march scheduled for Wednesday in Santo Domingo to demand a reduction in fuel prices.

Fenatrano leader Juan Hubieres told the press that the decision was taken to prevent outsiders from infiltrating the protest and committing acts of vandalism to discredit the drivers.

Residents of the Dominican capital woke up Wednesday to a heavy police and military presence in anticipation of the protest.

Officials and transport executives criticized Fenatrano for convening the protest, insisting that talks were already under way to address the problems facing the sector.

Fenatrano still plans to organize a march to the National Palace on Oct. 24, Hubieres.

A strike last week by Fenatrano drivers caused chaos in the capital and the surrounding province of Santo Domingo, leaving hundreds of commuters stranded.
