In Focus: Venezuela Gripped By Weeks of Anti-Government Protest

Widespread demonstrations against Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro’s government have become increasingly violent, leading to as many as 14 deaths. The protests began earlier this month as student groups voiced anger at the lack of security, high inflation, and more. Peaceful protests were met with harsh resistance, including gunfire. The ranks of the demonstrators swelled shortly after, as a broad dissatisfaction with the government and its handling of the current crisis brought thousands more to the streets - calling for Maduro to step down. Both sides appear to be digging in for the long run, as outside governments and groups call for calm and dialogue. Be sure to also see Moisés Naím’s article The Tragedy of Venezuela.

if you’re concerned about what’s going on in venezuela right now you should probably watch this video. 

i mean i don’t usually do things like this but my mom’s current boyfriend lives in venezuela and they’re starting to shut down social networking sites so word can’t get out about what’s happening. this is a pretty good summary from what i’ve heard, but obviously i don’t really have any first hand experience, it’s probably a lot worse than i know precisely because of this. it’s Really important that people know what’s going on because venezuela’s media is completely blacked out.
