Dominicans attend a demonstration against the fiscal reform in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, Sunday, Nov. 11, 2012. Hundreds of Dominicans protested against the government of Danilo Medina who presented to Congress the disputed tax legislation as a way to help close the $4.6 billion deficit in the government's budget. The measure will increase the general sales tax to 18 percent from 16 percent, will raise the price of gasoline and impose taxes on basic food products. The sign reads in Spanish: "Social inequality is more violent than any protest". (AP Photo/Manuel Diaz)
