Venezuela: Authorities Disperse Thousands Of Caracas Protesters

Members of the Bolivarian National Police and the national guard dispersed thousands of protesters in Caracas organized by Venezuela's main opposition coalition, the Democratic Unity Roundtable (MUD), on April 19, El Nacional reported. Authorities used tear gas on protesters who had been marching in El Paraiso in Western Caracas and near the Francisco de Miranda Air Force Base. An unidentified assailant shot and killed one protester in the San Bernardino neighborhood of Caracas. Venezuela's political opposition is nearing a critical juncture. Faced with the prospect of descending into political irrelevance as Venezuela devolves into a one-party state, the MUD has thrown its weight behind nationwide protests.
