Syrians in Venezuela protest trade with Assad

Anger expressed over Hugo Chavez's continued support for Syrian president amid crackdown.

    As the violence in Syria rages, the government is preparing to receive its third shipment of diesel from one of country's allies, Venezuela. The shipments are part of a 2010 agreement where Venezuela receives Syrian products like olive oil.

    Syrians in the Latin American country are now speaking out against the government for giving a lifeline to President Bashar al-Assad's forces.
