Drawing inspiration from Ukraine's 2013-14 revolt, Venezuela's young protesters are donning Viking-like shields in battles with security forces and eagerly watching a film on the Kiev uprising.
Power to the people.
A demonstrator holding a rudimentary shield that depicts the Venezuelan Constitution and reads "Respect me" and "Defend me", poses for a picture before a rally against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's government in Caracas, Venezuela, June 17, 2017. He said: "I protest because we want a better Venezuela and because Maduro has to leave. I protest because there are many people going hungry and many children living in the streets... Maduro wants to turn us into Cuba, but we are Venezuelans." CARLOS GARCIA RAWLINS/REUTERS
