CARACAS, March 31 Scores of opponents of
Venezuela's socialist leader Nicolas Maduro blocked a highway in
Caracas on Friday at the start of what activists say will be
rolling street protests against the ruling Socialists.
"Today in Venezuela, we've woken up blocking streets," said
opposition lawmaker Miguel Pizarro, among a crowd chanting and
waving banners on a motorway to protest what they view as this
week's lurch into "dictatorship" by Maduro.
