Opposition Renew Protest Against Maduro

Venezuela’s opposition renewed protests across the country on Thursday to pressure President Nicolas Maduro’s government to hold elections, a day after three people were killed in similar demonstrations. However, the crowds were smaller than the hundreds of thousands who protested in Caracas and elsewhere the previous day, Euronews reported. The wife of jailed opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez called on the authorities to put down their weapons. “We leave our homes with a lot of strength and a lot of faith because protesting is a constitutional and universal right. The Nicolas Maduro regime doesn’t even allow us to gather,” Lilian Tintori said. Also present on the demonstration was Henrique Capriles, the opposition leader barred by the government from holding office. Opposition lawmakers accused security forces of using excessive tear gas and force to block the marches.
