Dajabón, Dominican Republic (Red Fronteriza Jano Siksè).- Dajabón organizations and citizens marked the 75th anniversary of the tyrant Rafael Trujillo's order to slaughter Haitians and Dominicans in 1937, and unveiled a historic mural on a wall at the Dajabón parish, Nuestra Señora del Rosario.

Committee spokesman and parish priest David Pantaleon, stressed that the painting portrays the event which marked a turning point at the border.

He said the tragedy needs to be clarified to avert distortions and fear of open discussion among Dominicans and Haitians, as the committee has now dared to conduct in various scenarios.
