A mural of the eyes of Venezuela’s national hero Simon Bolivar is seen as farmers march in support of Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro in Caracas February 26, 2014. Pope Francis called on Wednesday for an end to violence in Venezuela that has killed at least 13 people and urged politicians to take the lead in calming the nation’s worst unrest for a decade. Both political camps were demonstrating in cities around the country. In the capital Caracas, female opposition supporters rallied while agricultural workers marched to the presidential palace in support of the socialist government.
