De demonstranten van Venezuela

Massademonstraties tegen de regering in Venezuela zijn opnieuw uitgemond in geweld. Tienduizenden inwoners gingen de straat op om te protesteren. In Venezuela wordt al wekenlang betoogd tegen de regering. Het land verkeert in een diepe economische crisis, de criminaliteit rijst de pan uit en er heerst extreme schaarste aan voedsel en medicijnen. De oppositie heeft een meerderheid in het Congres, maar wordt door de regering en het hooggerechtshof monddood gemaakt.
