Over two dozen people gathered on the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville to speak out, asking for freedom and basic human rights.

One man explained that the government controls the media in Venezuela and he wants people to raise awareness on what's taking place in his country.

“The main part of people supporting our world is the violence,” says Carlos Palomares, from Caracas, Venezuela. “We need to stop that, we don't want more blood.”

“We want the government to stop their parliamentary forces attacking our students and killing our people.”

They want to spread the word about the violence with hopes that it will one day end.
