United strike in northern Dominican Republic

A transport strike staged by different barrio (neighbourhood) organizations to demand lower fuel prices has stopped all buses on routes to the north-central Cibao and Northwest regions, except those of the company Caribe Tours.
The bus companies Frente Liniero, Expreso Bello Atardecer and others joined the strike convened by the barrio organizations grouped in FALPO (Broad Front for Popular Struggle). Although Caribe Tours continued to operate, many of its buses were stopped and turned around by strikers.
