Venezuelan opposition leader: "This government is dying out"

26 February 2014 Last updated at 12:24 GMT

Demonstrations against the government of President Nicolas Maduro have been taking place in cities throughout Venezuela.

They started last week as students complained about high crime rates and a lack of security in their universities - but thousands of other Venezuelans have since joined in, demonstrating against high inflation and the shortage of basic goods such as milk and toilet paper.

The Venezuelan opposition leader, Henrique Capriles, has told the BBC how he believes the political and economic problems in his country can be solved.
