    Violence at a Doctors March - Caracas, Venezuela February 10, 2014

     
    This was an event that happened yesterday around 1pm at the Plaza Venezuela area of Caracas. There was a march of doctors wanting to air their grievances about a lack of medicine and adequate care at public hospitals in Venezuela. A counter march with the oficialistas were granted permission to go to the president's palace while this march was blocked less than 500 meters from their starting point on their way to the vice president's office. There were several tense moments with doctors and the national guard and police pushing one another. A doctor and several members of the national guard exchanged punes. The national guard sprayed protesters with pepper spray and the vice minister of health was one the people hit by the spray.
