Coup in Dominican Republic

The democratically elected government of the Dominican Republic is removed by a military coup.

Juan Bosch had become the first democratically elected president of the country since 1924. His program included land reform, affordable housing, the avoidance of exploitative foreign investment, civil liberties, and nationalisation.

After the coup, USA marines are sent in to look after American business interests and support the new regime.
