Venezuela in chaos

Alejandro Cegarra

Fear and Loathing in Caracas

The everyday presence of violence is as certain as the rising of the sun. Gangs clash in the streets, with each other, with the police, with the army. They all have power and abuse it. Amidst all of this is the normal citizen, armed with weapons to protect themselves. Whether it is the loss of a friend or relative, everyone here has been touched by violence. You don’t know who to trust, you’re always looking over your shoulder, uncertain as to what will happen next. Violence has become normal, death hangs in the air.
