Venezuelans staged dueling marches to mark the anniversary of last year's bloody protest movement that resulted in more than 40 people being killed, including both government supporters and opponents. Dozens of protesters remain jailed, while the social issues they railed against last year- a faltering economy, widespread shortages and pervasive violent crime - have only gotten worse.
