Reuters: Venezuelans protest for elections, unrest enters fourth week
Venezuelans erected barricades with garbage and even bathtubs on Monday and snarled traffic with mass "sit-ins" along major thoroughfares to press their demand for early elections as anti-government protests entered a fourth week.
