Caracas, Venezuela
Even by the volatile and violent standards of recent times in Venezuela, 2017 was an exceptional year, a "perfect storm" of political and economic crisis. Going into a fourth year of crippling recession, Venezuela's 30 million people found themselves skipping meals, suffering shortages of basic foods and medicines, jostling in lines for ever-scarcer subsidized goods, unable to keep up with dizzying inflation rates, and emigrating in ever larger numbers. In unprecedented scenes for the once-prosperous OPEC nation, some citizens survived only by scavenging through garbage. Not surprisingly in that context, President Nicolas Maduro's ruling Socialists - the inheritors of Hugo Chavez's "21st century revolution" - lost popularity on the street, and the opposition coalition sensed a chance to unseat them. The tipping point came in March when the pro-Maduro Supreme Court essentially took over functions of the opposition-led National Assembly. Though the controversial ruling was later modified, it was a trigger and rallying cry for the opposition, which began a campaign of street protests that ran from April to July.
