    Background: Some two thousand women held a demonstration in one of the main squares of Caracas on Thursday (6 May) to protest against increased prices for basic commodities.

    The majority of the demonstrators belonged to the opposition Christian Democrat Party. They were addressed by party leaders and officials of consumer societies who were highly critical of the way in which the government was handling inflation.

    Venezuela's cost of living has been spiralling upwards like that of most developing countries, although it is the fourth largest oil exporter in the world.
