What’s happening in Venezuela?

Venezuelans have gone out to protest against the government of Maduro since April 21st. Since 1989, the popular neighborhoods have not come down from the mountains. During those times, the government of Acción Democrática [Democratic Action] murdered many protesters, with it becoming known as the Caracazo.[1]
