    Tension in Maracaibo


    As the situation in Venezuela becomes more tense with demonstrations and protests against the government. People from Mérida and Táchira states continue with "guarimbas" (street clashes) while in Maracaibo people keep on banging on pots and pans.


    These videos were recorded by a fellow venezuelan who lives exactly in the downtown area. She was woken up early in the morning by what appeared to be gunshots. People were running away from a local shopping center, as it can be seen in the following segments. Police forces entered the mall (Ciudad Chinita Mall) shooting and driving people away while neighbors from the surrounding buildings screamed and shouted "murderers!".
