This video by Capsian Report discusses the current political crisis in Venezuela. Venezuela is now experiencing a protracted political crisis that threatens to tear apart the country as a result of a general downturn in its economy. As a result of the crisis, the government of Venezuela under the leadership of President Nicholas Maduro has decreased political freedom and has thus far failed to turn the economic and political situation in the country around. The political crisis in Venezuela was only gotten worse in recent weeks and culminated with an attack on the Supreme Court building by several dissident groups on June 28, 2017. Even though this video ignores the role that the US government has played in promoting protests against President Maduro and in destabilizing the economy of Venezuela, it gives a great insight and explanation of some of the problems facing Venezuela over the past five years.
