Anti-government demonstrators pushing for a presidential recall vote in Venezuela had a message as they marched Wednesday: We won't take no for an answer.

If officials don't resume halted referendum proceedings, opposition leaders vowed to march to the presidential palace next week and make sure President Nicolás Maduro hears them.


The protests come days after officials halted the opposition's recall vote drive, ruling that there were multiple cases of voter identity fraud.

The controversial move has fueled mounting tensions between the government and the opposition that show no sign of slowing.

Each side accuses the other of staging a coup in the country, which is edging closer to a breaking point as it faces a recession, soaring food prices and broken hospitals.
