Venezuelan President Is Chased by Angry Protesters

President Nicolás Maduro was chased at a routine political event by a crowd of angry protesters banging on pots and yelling that they were hungry, just days after thousands of Venezuelans took to the streets to call for his ouster, reports The New York Times.

In one video, Maduro tries to calm the pot-bangers by walking among them, only to be surrounded as the furious crowd yells obscenities.

“What is this?” an astounded voice behind the camera asks in a video clip.

NYT reports:
The confrontation in Villa Rosa suggests that the tide may have turned in an area that once supported the president. It voted for Mr. Maduro and his predecessor and mentor, Hugo Chávez, in previous elections by significant margins.


  1. What's the hold-up? The lampposts are right there!

  2. Good, socialist scum should face the angry faces of the people that they make suffer
