Representatives of various organizations of Santiago marched today by different streets calling for the output of the mining company Barrick Gold or its nationalization.

The protest was joined by choferiles, popular organizations, together neighbouring, feminist, student and labor guilds.

The March departed from the area of the monument to the Heroes of the restoration and toured the avenues Las Carreras, Antonio Guzmán, Hermanas Mirabal, calle del Sol, Duarte and others.

The demonstration caused large seals on public roads, while members of the national police carrying long range weapons and tear gas closely watched the protest, but reported no incidents of relevance.

Juan Marte, President of the national centre of transport workers and Victor Breton of the broad front of Popular struggle, two of the organizations that joined the demonstration, said that Barrick Gold should leave immediately from the country because in addition to being our "gold", has mocked the Dominicans"and executes a ruthless predation of natural resources.

They said not to understand why the Government has not assumed its responsibility to close the mine as they have for other countries, where it has a presence, as in the case of Chile.

In addition with the March protested by the long batches of blackouts that extend up to 20 consecutive hours in many sectors and against the makeshift stops of vehicles.

In the areas of Beijing, Los Ciruelitos, Otra Banda, Barrio Lindo, Hato Mayor, San Jose, new neighborhood and others, also were protests against power outages and the Barrick Gold.
