Protesting in Venezuela Means Facing Injury, Imprisonment, or Death

In 2019, Juan Guiado became the face of Venezuela’s opposition movement. He used a loophole in the country’s constitution to declare himself president and promised to oust President Nicolas Maduro and a transition to free and fair elections.

VICE News followed three opposition supporters through the first anti-government protest of 2020 to see if Juan Guiado can breathe life into a flagging movement.
