Hundreds of thousands of Venezuelans packed a major highway in a rally for opposition presidential candidate Manual Rosales, one of the largest demonstrations against President Hugo Chavez in years. Shouts of "Dare to change!" rose up from the dense crowd filling the highway for several kilometers (miles) and spilling into nearby overpasses and streets in Venezuela's capital, Caracas. Saturday's rally came eight days before the country's presidential election on Dec. 3. Rosales, speaking from a stage, promised democracy for a country he said was sinking into Cuba-style authoritarianism under Chavez. "I don't want to be a president who controls all the branches of government," Rosales shouted to thundering applause. "Let there be true democracy in Venezuela!" He denounced the government for prohibiting television crews from using helicopters to film the march, saying, "They don't want the people to see this multitude."
