WATCH | Scenes from the Venezuela protests
Masses of protesters shut down a main road in the Venezuelan capital of Caracas while demonstrating against the government, reports The Guardian.
As the protests reached the 50-day mark, soldiers closed access to the center of the city and at least 10 metro stations in anticipation of the protests which show no signs of slowing down despite a rise in the death toll and looting.
State security forces have up until this point prevented protesters from reaching the city center which is home to many government buildings.
At least 46 people have been killed in these protests thus far, both protesters and police.
Many Venezuelans are upset with Maduro's government blaming it for a slew of wrongs, from rising inflation, to rigged elections, to jailing activists.
