In venezuela, a raid on army base on aug. 6 marked a troubling escalation from the protests that have convulsed the nation since april. for months, demonstrators have faced off against police and soldiers with rocks, molotov cocktails and cardboard shields in clashes that have cost more than 120 lives. they have also dodged the bullets of paramilitary groups who claim loyalty to the socialist vision of president nicolás maduro’s predecessor and mentor, hugo chávez.⠀
despite sitting on the largest oil reserves on the planet, maduro has steered the economy into hyperinflation that has left millions hungry and poor. during remarks friday evening, president trump said he would not rule out a "military option" in venezuela. here, as maduro creeps closer to outright dictatorship, are scenes from venezuela's last gasp of democracy.⠀

The watts riots began 52 years ago today, (aug. 11-16, 1965). one year later in 1966, life magazine sent staff photographer bill ray to watts to revisit the neighborhood and document the changes and activities in watts. it ran as the july 25, 1966 cover story - watts still seething. "1965—when the riot cry was 'burn baby, burn!' 1966—why the ghetto today is close to flashpoint." the image here is an outtake not published in the original photo essay showing teenagers listening to a radio on the street, near simon rodia's watts towers, in the watts neighborhood of los angeles.(bill ray—the life picture collection/getty images) #watts#losangeles#california
