    Police have used tear gas to disperse anti-government demonstrators in Venezuela as mass rallies against President Nicolas Maduro continue.

    Protests have been taking place almost every day for more than 40 days.

    Maduro is attempting to convince Venezuelans and the international community that his plans to rewrite the constitution will bring peace and stability to the strife-torn country.

    Al Jazeera's Lucia Newman reports from Caracas.
