    Young Protesters in San Cristobal


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     alejocamacho shot footage of young students "trying to be heard" in San Cristobal, Venezuela. The 53-year-old banker said he supports the protesters.

There have been more than 15 years that the majority of the Venezuelan citizens are going through tough times. There are so many problems we have to face everyday and there seems to be not a sincere attitude from the high government officials to rectify [them]."
