The Atlantic : The tragedy of Venezuela in 40 photos

Venezuela Gripped by Weeks of Anti-Government Protest.

Widespread demonstrations against Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro's government have become increasingly violent, leading to as many as 14 deaths.

The protests began earlier this month as student groups voiced anger at the lack of security, high inflation, and more. Peaceful protests were met with harsh resistance, including gunfire. The ranks of the demonstrators swelled shortly after, as a broad dissatisfaction with the government and its handling of the current crisis brought thousands more to the streets - calling for Maduro to step down. Both sides appear to be digging in for the long run, as outside governments and groups call for calm and dialogue.

In Caracas, Venezuela, a demonstrator holds a street sign to shield himself as he stands amid a cloud of tear gas during a protest against the government of President Nicolas Maduro, on February 22, 2014. Starting earlier this month as a student-led protest against a lack of security, high inflation, and more, the protests have grown into a broad anti-government movement seeking the ouster of Maduro -- sometimes meeting violent resistance, resulting in at least 13 deaths.
