What started as a student protest has grown, as demonstrators against the government of President Nicolas Maduro continue in Caracas. Anti-government protesters are demanding more freedom of speech, better security and an end to socialist policies that have led to goods shortages and an anemic economy. Opposition leader  Leopoldo Lopez was arrested and charged with arson and conspiracy after clashes left at least six people dead. The turmoil is set to continue.
