Thousands of Venezuelans that now live outside of their home country have organised demonstrations to support the actions on the streets  in the South American country. The images of these gatherings have been shared widely on social networks.
On Facebook the page SOS Venezuela  [es] collects a large number of photos, which are also published with the tags #iamyourvoicevenezuela  #SOSVenezuela  and #PrayForVenezuela  on Twitter and Instagram.
