Barahona, Dominican Republic.- Residents on Friday called "deplorable" the sprawl at the local Punta Inglesa beach (southwest) stoked by the authorities' indifference.

They say the piling trash dragged by the currents of the Caribbean Sea has seriously damaged the already eroded shoreline, while the local authorities fail to remove the waste.

"The local Town Hall, Tourism and Environment have left this space to fend for itself, facing increasing pollution and all the trash within Punta Inglesa's perimeter."

They ask the authorities to join forces and haul the trash away. "This is a site frequently visited by local and foreign tourists who get this bad impression of the city."

I think that you will find that most of the garbage originates right here. They make it sound like all of this is coming from other countries.
