Venezuelans protest plan to scrap term limits

On Saturday, Feb. 7, 2009, thousands of Venezuelans turned out to protest an amendment to the constitution — set for a Feb. 15 referendum — that would abolish all political term limits. It would allow Venezuela’s controversial socialist president, Hugo Chavez, to run for office again after his second term concludes in 2012.
