Venezuela protests intensify, more flee country as crisis deepens
Venezuela’s opposition has called for more anti-government protests on Wednesday, the same day that leaders of the Organization of American States meet in Washington, DC, to discuss the economic and political crises in Venezuela.
Around 60 people have been killed during two months of clashes between demonstrators and police. Meanwhile, the country’s crises are deepening with inflation, chronic food shortages, and violence, and an increasing number of people are fleeing the country.
