Venezuela on a ledge

Chaos continues in Venezuela

Venezuelan security forces used water cannons and teargas to disperse tens of thousands of opposition protesters heading towards the foreign ministry on Wednesday.

The clashes between police and demonstrators came as the Organization of American States held another meeting on the crisis in Venezuela.

Two months of protests against President Nicolas Maduro’s socialist government have convulsed the South American OPEC nation, with at least 59 people killed in the recent unrest.

Opposition supporters demanding elections, freedom for jailed activists, and foreign humanitarian aid, marched onto Caracas’ main highway aiming to reach the ministry in the city centre.
