Students stage anti-Chavez rally

Campaigners say
 they will do all
they can to
defeat the
referendum

Hundreds of thousands of Venezuelans have held a protest against Sunday’s referendum on President Hugo Chavez’s controversial constitutional reforms.

The crowds gathered in Caracas oppose the planned changes, which include the removal of presidential term limits.

They accuse Mr Chavez of a power grab but supporters say the changes will deepen Venezuela’s democracy.

It is the latest in a series of student-led rallies, ahead of the "yes" campaign’s final march on Friday.

However, correspondents say the "no" campaign is gaining force.
