The Party and the Trash

José Arias writes [es] on Habemos Ciudadanus about the issue of trash in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic:

The thing is that trash and plastic are the result of the weekly party at Bonyé. Regrettable and revealing, once again, of the civic degeneration in spite of the praises to heroic martyrdom and love to the Tricolor Flag. Nonethless, that love and respet for the sacrifice of Heroes aren't seen in harsh urban hygiene: pick up the trash or ask the locals to put the trash where it belongs.

The post reviewed here was part of the fourth #LunesDeBlogsGV [Monday of blogs on GV] on May 26, 2014.
