The country of Venezuela has faced historical violent protests during the past year, causing the deaths of over 150 people in 2017 alone, most of them protesters and one journalist. Back in April of 2013, Nicolas Maduro who used to be the Minister of Foreign Affairs to the ex-president Hugo Chaves, was elected President. Since about a year later in the spring of 2014, the country of Venezuela has encountered turmoil that reached its peak in violence in the spring of 2017. Back then, angry demonstrators took the streets of Caracas among multiple other cities throughout the country to protest against the strict regime of the new Maduro's government.

Apart from Caracas which all footage was filmed in, people in other cities demonstrated their anger towards the ''corrupted and dictatorial'' government of Nicolas Maduro in San Cristobal, Valencia, Maracaibo and Maracay. Organizers of the demonstrations were the opposition parties and the national assembly including the citizens and the very politicians involved in these parties. Students and other young adults also took part in clashes between the national guard and national police. Reportedly, even the members of the government has illegal armed groups that intervened.

The month of April 2017 ended up being one of the deadliest, leaving multiple dead during and after protests by being shot by armed forces with gas canisters, electrocuted while looting and shot while looting. During these large scales protests, among them the April 20th ''mother of all marches'', the streets of Caracas were paralyzed by hundreds of thousands of residents who marched and chanted. Students and other protesting groups marched on the Francisco Fajardo highway creating impressive wave-like displays of the large moving crowd.

The raw footage taken from our archives to make this compilation was filmed during the months of May and April 2017 matching these time-stamps and specific dates: May 1 - Start - 16:28 May 3 - 16:29 - 25:50 April 8 - 25:51 - 28:47 April 10 - 28:48 - 34:49 April 13 - 34:50 - 40:16 April 19 - 40:17 - 55:37 April 20 - 55:38 - 1:00:52 April 26 - 1:00:53 - End Footage during this one hour raw compilation shows the unfolding action of clashes between protesters and heavily armed riot police officers, among them people throwing molotov cocktails, rocks and other debris. It also shows cops fighting back by throwing tear gas and smoke canisters as well as using water canons to disperse people. It also includes parts of political speeches given to the public, large scale demonstrations as well as paramedics treating and transporting injured victims from scenes to hospitals.
