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.

Venezuela’s shield-bearing protesters

A demonstrator holding a rudimentary shield that reads "A benediction for the students", poses for a picture before a rally against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's government in Caracas, Venezuela, May 24, 2017. He said: "I am in the streets resisting because in this country we are living in a dictatorship and we want to have a better future for our children. Because food is not available, there are no jobs, no production of anything, we have high cost of living and insecurity." CARLOS GARCIA RAWLINS/REUTERS
