Hate Rising: Jorge Ramos explores the rise of racism in America
Clashes between protesters and police have been going in Venezuela since Feb. 12, when groups of students headed to the streets to demand the resignation of President Nicolas Maduro.
Thousands of people in Venezuela have joined the marches since then to protest the country’ high inflation, lack of security, repression of dissent and shortages of basic goods.
But as the country returns from the recent carnival holiday and commemorates the first anniversary of Hugo Chavez’s death, some analysts wonder if the student protests can even sustain their current round of protests, or if the action on the streets will fizzle, as fatigue with protests settles in.
Student leader Juan Requesens of the Universidad Central de Venezuela insists that protesters won’t give up.
