Venezuelans have been protesting President Nicolas Maduro's government for over a week now.

According to opposition leader Leopoldo López, all the problems the country has been facing — shortages, inflation, insecurity, the lack of opportunities — are a result of Maduro's government.

Social media platforms have allegedly been blocked by Maduro's government and international media outlets have been attacked.

At least five people have been killed during the protests so far.
