Military Tanks On A Venezuelan Roadway

Soldiers from Venezuela’s National Guard and a military tank along a highway in Valencia, Venezuela on Friday. This type of military presence is found at every spot where protesters gather in Valencia, but it is not limited to where the protesters are. There are as many as three, sometimes even four, military tanks stationed at the entrance to every neighborhood and in every square in the city, along with 20 or more National Guardsmen and several motorcycles. This photo shows the tank and some soldiers but the view does not show the four or five military motorcycles that were also present. (Mary Granella/YJI)
