Three dead yesterday, bringing the total to eight. Pro-government armed groups threatening and sniping at marching protesters, while the police and military deal with any heavy-duty confrontations. Arrests of real or imagined “coup plotters”. Economic and industrial chaos spins further out of control.
This looks bad, and it’s going to get worse, even if (or especially if) Maduro leaves office, through the door or on it.
