  • Description

    ABOUT 500 STUDENTS STAGED ANGRY DEMONSTRATIONS ON THE CAMPUS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF SANTO DOMINGO, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, OCT 17. IT WAS THE SECOND DAY OF RIOTS AGAINST THE RECENT APPOINTMENT OF JOSE MANUEL MACHADO AS RECTOR OF THE UNIVERSITY.

    STUDENTS CALLED HIM "TOO PRO TRUDILLO". THEY TORE DOWN PICTURES OF THE LATE GENERALISSIMO RAFAEL TRUDILLO, BROKE WINDOWS, AND VOWED THEY WOULD KEEP UP THE DISTURBANCES UNTIL MACHADO WAS REMOVED FROM HIS POST.

    THE GOVERNMENT SENT TWO BUSLOADS OF POLICE TO THE SCENE, AND ORDERED THE UNIVERSITY TO BE CLOSED FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE YEAR WHILE CONGRESS CONSIDERS A BULL CALLING FOR LEGAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE MODIFICATIONS OF THE AUTONOMY UNDER WHICH THE SCHOOL WAS OPERATED.
