Opponents of the government of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro march in Caracas to mark International Women's Day on March 8, 2015. Late president Hugo Chavez's hand-picked successor, Maduro, is struggling to revive the recession-hit economy and address chronic shortages of basic goods. Maduro has taken a harder line than Chavez, jailing opponents and allowing the security forces to use deadly force to control public demonstrations. His approval rating is now hovering around 20 percent, putting the Chavistas at risk of losing key legislative elections later this year. (AFP/Getty Images)
