(ABC 6 News) – Those rallies in Venezuela aren’t only being held there. Today, around two dozen people gathered in downtown Rochester calling for Venezuelan Peace.

As protesters continue to line the streets in Venezuela, Rochester had its own protest against the Venezuelan government today.

It was a bigger crowd than anticipated and there were honks from cars for support.

Those protesting say they’re sick of the past 15 years of government and they want democracy that they haven’t had under former President Hugo Chavez and current President Nicolas Maduro.

According to protesters, people are being killed in Venezuela every day.

Tune in to ABC 6 News at 10:00 pm tonight as we have more of the story from local Venezuelan protesters.
