Demonstrators join hands to block a highway in the Altamira neighborhood of Caracas, Venezuela on Monday. The banner over their heads reads in Spanish "We are all Venezuela.”

Traffic has come to a halt in parts of the Venezuelan capital because of barricades set up by opposition protesters across major thoroughfares. The protests are part of a wave of anti-government demonstrations that have swept Venezuela since Feb. 12 and have resulted in at least 10 deaths.
