Scores of opponents of President Nicolas Maduro are marching in Caracas, vowing to remain on the streets in defiance of a high court ruling limiting protests.
Demonstrators carried signs on Saturday blasting a Supreme Court ruling this week that gives police the right to disperse protests that don't have a permit.
Opponents say the ruling is the latest attempt by the socialist government to muzzle dissent amid widespread discontent with runaway inflation and record shortages.
The government says that more than 40 people have been killed across Venezuela in protest-related incidents.
