Protesters flood Caracas streets to protest Maduro

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Hundreds of thousands of Venezuelans poured into 'the streets of Caracas on Wednesday (January 23) to demand an end to the government of President Nicolas Maduro, while the United States considered recognizing opposition leader Juan Guaido as the country's rightful leader.

The rally followed dozens of violent protests and looting overnight that left four people dead, according to an official and a rights group, in an echo of tumultuous street demonstrations two years ago.

The opposition has been energized by young Congress chief Guaido, who has led a campaign to declare Maduro a usurper and has promised a transition to a new government in a nation suffering a hyperinflationary economic collapse.

Maduro was inaugurated on January 10 to another term in office following a widely boycotted election last year that many foreign governments described as a fraudulent.

Any change in government in Venezuela will rest on a shift in allegiance within the armed forces.

They have stood by Maduro through two waves of street protests and a steady dismantling of democratic institutions.
