Oct. 9 - Hundreds of supporters of opposition candidate Henrique Capriles block Caracas' avenue in protest against Chavez victory. Sarah Charlton reports.
Hundreds of students gather in the Venezuelan capital, demonstrating against the re-election of President Hugo Chavez. Supporting opposition candidate Henrique Capriles, they called for a re-count of votes from Sunday's (October 7) presidential election. SOUNDBITE: UNIVERSITY STUDENT ALEJANDRA GONZALEZ SAYING (Spanish): "We want our votes to count, we want to live in a democracy, we want to be free, we want to have a future. That is why we are here and we are not leaving until there is a manual count. We want justice." Chavez claimed a comfortable victory with almost 55 percent of the vote. But analysts say a slim margin of victory shows a growing frustration at day-to-day problems such as crime. With another six-year term beginning, Chavez's rule now extends to two decades in power.
