>> You're seeing lootings and scenes like this pretty much every day across Venezuela. My name's Girish Gupta, I'm in Caracas for Reuters. The food truck has just arrived here, and as you can see the people behind me are extremely angry, they're hungry. A woman in her 50s just told me how she hadn't eaten since yesterday morning.

She had a couple of eggs she said, it's now gone mid day. The situation is exactly the same for every member of her family, all five people in her household, and lots of people here are telling me the same thing. People in the crowds here are shouting, the loosing needs to take place, they need this food no matter what.

The Police and National Guard around are not letting them in just yet. There's a lot more of them, then there are authorities. These people are extremely angry with the government. Presently by a little less suffering, shortages of the most basic goods. When they come out, they have two bags of plaster, nothing more, triple digit inflation, lines at supermarkets of hundreds if not thousands of people.

They're also angry at the opposition. The opposition is calling for a recall referendum, but that looks like a very long, tricky process. They want something to happen now, they're hungry.
