What the hell is going on in Venezuela? Everything from food, to medicine, to electricity seems to be scarce. Since the recent impeachment of Brazil’s first woman’s president, Dilma Rousseff, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro fears a coup from his own people and some help from none other than the U.S. of A.

Many opposers of the President have now criticized him for yet another move. One of the main reasons is because the last time he called for a State of Emergency in 2015, he suspended constitutional rights of the people. But Maduro, as usual, points his finger to the U.S. He says,

“Washington is activating measures at the request of Venezuela’s fascist right, who are emboldened by the coup in Brazil.”

What’s to come of this? It doesn’t look like anything good. The Venezuelan people seem to be tired of the economic crisis that’s been plaguing their country for years now. Some have protested recently but their protest was met with tear gas from government officials. One could only hope things get better.
