A Venezuelan government militia has given Sky News rare access to a barrio in the country’s capital, as the political crisis in the nation continues.
The slums were the beating heart of the revolution under Hugo Chavez, and despite the majority of residents still living in desperate poverty and there was strong support for Nicolas Maduro.
Sky’s Stuart Ramsay was told by the people that life was ‘very hard to get by’.
