    Protest in Caracas

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     metropoluis iReporter Luis Miguel says people in Venezuela are tired of government's irregularities. He adds they only want the votes from last Sunday presidential elections to be recounted, that's what they are asking in a pacifist way. Luis Miguel tells that Capriles’ supporters took the streets while the National Electoral Council (CNE) was proclaiming Nicolas Maduro as the new president of the country. The iReporter adds that at 8pm local time, more neighbors (that support opposition leader Henrique Capriles Randoski) came downstairs to protests against the election results in what they called a "cacerolazo" (a protest that consist in banging pots and pans,) he says that there was around 70 people in the main avenue (Romulo Gallegos Ave.) He concludes the protesters stayed at this place until around 10pm local time.
