Venezuelans protest two-day work week

Venezuelan cities are being cleaned after looting and fiery protests.
 
Angry residents in darkened towns around the country took to the streets Tuesday night, setting up flaming barricades and raiding shops for food. This, as government offices closed their doors for the rest of the week in the face of a worsening energy crisis that is causing daily blackouts. 
 
In Caracas, hundreds of angry voters lined up to sign a petition, that will begin the process of recalling the deeply unpopular President Nicolas Maduro.
 
The government began imposing a four-hour daily blackout around the country this week to save electricity. Mr. Maduro announced that millions of officials will now work only Mondays and Tuesdays, taking the rest of the week off in a bid to save electricity.
