At the very begining of April 2017, people revolted in Caracas to pressure the Nicolas Maduro's government to hold elections and improve the collapsing economy of the country. During 4 months masses of angry citizens took to the streets with placards that read "No more dictatorship" and "No more deaths" while the government security forces have avoided protesters from reaching the Caracas centre, supreme court and electoral authority office. According the National Prossecutor Office there are more than 3500 injured people and 135 dead during the worst turmoil faced by the Venezuelan government since the president Maduro won the presidency in 2013.
