Video: Street Clashes in Caracas, Venezuela

As protests in Venezuela enter their third week, some parts of Caracas have become an urban war zone.

One of the tactics adopted by some of the protesters has been to blockade streets as a way to keep police and pro-government militants out of their neighborhoods. But this block by block secession from government control also prevent people from getting to work and going about their business. There’s an inherent risk that some of the tactics used by the opposition could cause them to lose support.

This video, produced by Jesus Olarte for Fusion gives a sense of what the conflict looks like at the street level.
