A society in crisis

People, mostly the young, students, are protesting on a daily basis in Venezuela. Anti-government demonstrations that started peacefully have become increasingly violent as protesters are met by the military and police forces equipped with water canons, tear gas and fire guns. And what are the young protesters demonstrating for? Food, medicine, a safe society and fresh elections.

Basic human rights in essence.
