1959 – A group of Dominican exiles with
leftist tendencies that departed from Cuba land in the Dominican
Republic with the intent of deposing Rafael Leónidas Trujillo
Molina. Save for four of them, all are killed and/or executed
by Trujillo's army. This feat would be the inspiration for a
clandestine group that would seek to continue undermining
Trujillo's power and would be called "Movimiento Catorce de Junio"
(14th of June Movement).
