CARACAS (FOX) - Hundreds march in Venezuela on Tuesday to denounce the government of President Nicolas Maduro.

Protesters took to the streets of Caracas to stand against Maduro and to demand the release of people jailed in recent demonstrations.

Protesters waved flags and chanted as they marched, some making reference to the World Cup in Brazil.

One woman carried a sign depicting two footballs, which read "kick the dictatorship," and "goal of liberty."

Protests erupted in February and have been ongoing as high inflation hits consumers, supplies are in short supply and crime rates are soaring.

Another sign read in Spanish, "Fresh lies."
