nezuelan authorities used tear gas against yet another anti-government protest in Venezuela. My name's Gursh Gupta and I'm at the site of the protest in Caracas for Reuters. Hundreds of people showed up to back Henrique Capriles. Now he's the de facto opposition leader, and he came face to face with the National Guard.
00:00:19
They said they're protesting because they're hungry. Lines at supermarkets are in the thousands. They're short of the most basic foods. People here are very, very angry, they were screaming at the National Guard. You guys are hungry, too, your family isn't eating either. You guys are earning 15 bucks a month just like us, and they're right.
00:00:37
The minimum wage here, the monthly minimum wage is just $15 a month at the black market exchange rate. People here are very angry and they're calling for a recall referendum against president Nicolas Menudo. Looting is taking place pretty much every day now across Venezuela. And people are being killed at the supermarkets as they try and get hold of food.
00:00:56
So very serious situation, it's gonna be a very tense time for the protestors.
