Venezuelan Protesters Ask Governor Scott For Help
Chanting "liberty," hundreds of Venezuelan-Americans packed a tiny southwest Miami-Dade County restaurant to fight for freedom, signing petitions and pleading for help from the U.S. government for their home country.
Governor Rick Scott arrived amid cheers and demands to take the Venezuelan pleas to the President. Florida's governor is calling for economic sanctions in the socialist country. He also challenged President Barack Obama to take action.
Dozens of students and peaceful protestors have been killed in Venezuela these past few months as many rise up against the regime, pleading for political change and demanding a democracy in the long-held dictatorship.
