Dominican Republic protests flood the Web, cross oceans

From overpasses in the sultry Dominican capital to parks in chilly Madrid and New York, the "Yellow Monday" protest to demand that the Government allocate four percent of the GDP for education snowballed since the early hours on Monday, supported by people at work, schools and other activities, featuring a yellow article of garment or on vehicles.

This grass roots campaign of civil society has received the support of businesses, churches, opposition political parties, organizations and the population.

Many commuters wearing yellow t-shirts and scarves were seen in the city’s avenues, where even the moto-taxis joined in on the protest, which has also flooded Facebook and Twitter, as users change their profile photo to a yellow tinge.
