Venezuela's opposition held new protests Monday, seeking to convert widespread anger over food shortages and economic havoc into pressure for a referendum on removing embattled President Nicolas Maduro.The opposition warns Venezuela risks veering into mass unrest if electoral authorities do not let them call a referendum this year on sacking Maduro, whom they blame for the once high-flying oil giant's descent into economic and political chaos.The latest protest comes after electoral authorities canceled a key meeting last Thursday where they were due to tell MUD leaders whether they would be allowed to go ahead with calling a referendum against Maduro.The meeting, at which the electoral board is to announce whether it accepts a preliminary petition signed by 1.8 million people backing a recall referendum, has been rescheduled to Tuesday.
