Santo Domingo.- All activities in the town of Baitoa, Santiago province were halted  from 6am Thursday, as residents demand the construction of a new cemetery, but the Councilmembers decided to build the new City Hall on the land designated.

Since early morning townsfolk blocked the streets with trash, tree trunks and other objects, to support the construction of the cemetery.

Residents of the highland town began the protest Wednesday with a walk through the town, clashing with police sent to maintain order.

The previous City Council bought the land to build the new site, but current mayo Radhames Rojas decided to build the municipal offices, despite opposition from residents.

Baitoa’s cemetery dates to the early 1900s, and has no more space for new burials.

With all the money being wasted in trivial things in this country,

the people of Baitoa deserve to have both, a decent cemetery and a worthy municipal office complex.

This is town is growing rapidly, and the country benefits from these people,

with agricultural production, plus the money transfer from those that migrated to the US.

Demand much more Baitoa,

your hard working people deserve,

much more than you are asking.

Thanks to the archaic thought processes of the Vatican ,the Roman Catholic Church still is opposed to cremation ..whereas throughout the world the overwhelming number of the dead are cremated ....If there were three or four more crematoriums we would not need all these cemetaries that are usually unkept and we could have ashes kept in stell boxes cemented into brick walls or in cement in the ground ,,A fraction of the space would be needed , we would not have to worry about the coffin robbers and the country would better off We all know the soul departs the physical body after death so why keep the body .

Don't bother praising my comments.

I look for no ones approval.

My objective is to safeguard my Dominican Nationality,

from the Haitian invasion.

Against the Hispaniola Hidden Fusion Agenda.

This is why ..........

a place to burry the dead. I don't think that's asking to much.
