Dr. Jose Lepervanche, a professor at Florida State College at Jacksonville, said more than 1,300 people went to La Nota on July 16 to cast a symbolic vote against Maduro, an action that was also taken by Venezuelans living in every corner of the world.

Lepervanche said it shows Venezuelans aren’t backing down.

“I hope that the Jacksonville Venezuelans and the Venezuelans that are living in all the countries can remember that we are the outside supporters,” Lepervanche said.
