#Venezuela - Cry For Food In Protests Near Presidential Palace: wochit News

Published on 2 Jun 2016
In Caracas, Venezuela groups of protesters chanting, "We want food!" gathered near the presidential palace, as security forces started firing rounds of tear gas. President Nicolas Maduro has been under intense pressure as the economic conditions worsen in his country of 30 million people. One woman told a reporter, "There's no more food in the shops and supermarkets. We're hungry and we're tired." Venezuelans are suffering from shortages of basic goods like milk and flour, despite being a country with the world's largest oil reserves. President Maduro blames the unrest on the fall in global oil prices. Government officials tried to reassure citizens that "things will improve in the next few weeks."
