Venezuelan Opposition Keeps Pressure on Government

Opposition supporters marched in Caracas today, vowing to maintain pressure President Nicolas Maduro’s government as an extended six-day holiday failed to damp demonstrations that have killed 18 people.

Protesters set up barricades before sunset with chunks of concrete, trees, wire and trash in the Altamira neighborhood of Caracas today. Young men with their faces covered prepared Molotov cocktails near an effigy of Maduro and a sign comparing the leader to the Biblical Judas. Earlier in the day demonstrators marched to the headquarters of the Organization of American States.
