As in past protests over the last three months, which have led to at least 90 deaths, people dressed in white and carrying national flags took to the streets for a planned gathering on a major highway in east Caracas.Lopez, 46, was sentenced to nearly 14 years in jail on charges of inciting violence during 2014 protests against President Nicolas Maduro that led to 43 deaths.Lopez looked robust, however, when he later appeared to supporters.
