Venezuela security forces block anti-Maduro protesters | Reuters

CARACAS Venezuelan security forces fired tear gas at protesters in Caracas on Wednesday amid nationwide rallies demanding a recall referendum to end President Nicolas Maduro's socialist rule. In the third day of opposition rallies in the past week, several thousand protesters descended on downtown Caracas, witnesses said, for a march to the national election board. But National Guard soldiers and police cordoned off the square where they planned to meet, so protesters instead milled in nearby streets waving flags, chanting "the government will fall" and pressing up against lines. #Politics #science #Venezuela #United Kingdom #President #Entertainment #article

Brazil rebuffs Latin American leftists over Rousseff suspension | Reuters

RIO DE JANEIRO Brazil's interim government dismissed criticism by leftist countries in Latin America, including Venezuela, Cuba and Bolivia, over the impeachment process of Dilma Rousseff, who was suspended as president by the senate. The leftist president of El Salvador on Saturday added to the regional pressure on Brazil, saying that he would not recognize the interim government and recalled his ambassador, claiming there had been "political manipulation" in Latin America's biggest country. The bickering, not rare between leftist leaders and more conservative governments at a time when much of the region is moving to the right, comes as centrist Michel Temer, Rousseff's vice president, assumes Brazil's presidency and scrambles to pull the economy out of its worst recession since the 1930s. #United States #Brazil #Venezuela #Argentina #El Salvador
