What you haven’t seen from Venezuela’s protests

A fire has been raging in Venezuela for the last two months as protests in the country have spiraled into episodes of mass civil unrest and waves of violence.

The crisis has claimed nearly fifty lives, mostly young students, and injured thousands since the Supreme Court attempted to dissolve the National Assembly and President Nicolas Maduro tries to illegally reform the constitution.

Strong graphic images and videos have poured through social media as protesters try to spread information and recruit international allies to help restore freedom to the oil-producing nation.

Here are some of those images. Viewer discretion is advised.
