The situation in Venezuela has only been getting worse, and there is virtually no one there who is spared the gathering instability and unrest as millions face food shortages, power outages, a currency crisis and political repression.

Much of the blame has been placed squarely on President Nicolas Maduro, the embattled socialist leader who has clamped down rather than give up power, even as a conditions reach the point of all-out crisis.

A significant portion of the population are lining up for hours to give fingerprint scans – this time not to buy food rations, but to certify their signatures on a ballot to recall and oust Maduro.

According to AFP:

Venezuelans queued to get fingerprinted Monday in a crucial phase of efforts to force President Nicolas Maduro from power, after food shortages sparked deadly protests and looting.

Thousands of Maduro’s opponents lined up to submit their fingerprints so electoral authorities can authenticate signatures on a petition calling for a referendum on his rule.

The procedures, due to run until Friday, could make or break the bid to hold a recall vote on Maduro.


Of the 1.3 million signatures recorded by the electoral board in the initial petition, at least 200,000 must be authenticated to pass to the next phase. The next step will require the collection of four million more signatures to call a full referendum.
