Dominican Republic: Tens of thousands join 'Green March' against corruption

Tens of thousands participated in a ‘Green March’ against government corruption in Santo Domingo, Sunday.

The protesters displayed their anger at a recent landmark bribery case made against top officials where Brazilian engineering company Odebrecht was revealed to have paid an alleged $92 million (€1,700,000) in bribes to officials in the Dominican Republic. The bribery charges have become a breaking point for widespread anger after decades of suspected government corruption.

SOT, protester (Spanish): "This society needs to breath, to have democracy. This is a proof that a country free of so much corruption, of so much impunity and of so indolent things, is possible. This country is free."
