Dominicans have partially complied with 24 hours general strike and civil social organizations called for Monday to reject the economic policies adopted by the government of Leonel Fernandez and to demand higher wages in the public sector and private sector.

The so-called “national strike” has been organized by the Alternative Social Forum and the Broad Front of Popular Struggle (FALP), with the support of the National Unified Carrier (CNTU) and the National Transport Federation The New Option (Fenatrano) , among other trades.
