CHAMPAIGN -- Political protesters rallied downtown. It's part of a movement to raise support for people in Venezuela. People there have been clashing with their government over civil liberties.

Protesters for and against president Nicolas Madura have been out for ten days and it's becoming violent. Eight people have died and over 100 have been injured.

Rallies like this happened all over the country Saturday. This is video from Houston, Texas. Members of the Venezuelan community protested outside their home country's consulate.
