CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) - Venezuelans are again filling downtown streets in protest while the government celebrates a diplomatic victory in the Organization of American States.

Late Friday in Washington, the body voted to approve a declaration that rejected violence and called for just outcomes for the 21 people the government says have died in weeks of street protests. The resolution also supported the Venezuelan government's attempts to use political dialogue to end the protests.

The United States, Panama and Canada voted against the resolution. Venezuela broke off relations with Panama this week after that country asked the OAS to discuss the situation in Venezuela. The U.S. and Panama argued the declaration picked sides.

The Venezuelan opposition has refused to open a dialogue with the government until jailed protesters are released.
