Mass protests in Venezuela against president

Thousands of Venezuelans took to the streets of Caracas in protest on Thursday rallying in large number against the current president, Nicolas Maduro. 

Demonstraters chanted "this government will fall" as they marched dressed in white and called for a recall referendum. They blamed the current government's socialist policies for the country's deep economic crisis with a widespread shortage of food and rising poverty. 

However, supporters of the president also rallied in large numbers, accusing the opposition of trying to launch a coup.
