Venezuela is in the throes of the biggest protests since the death of President Hugo Chavez a year ago.

People are outraged in the oil-rich country at record inflation, shortages of basic goods, and high crime rates.

Thirteen people have been killed since the demonstrations began.

CNN’S Christiane Amanpour spoke on Wednesday with Maria Corina Machado, an opposition member of parliament.

“The government has to choose: They make changes, profound changes, or they decided to repress,” Machado said from Caracas. “And what they have decided is the second part. They decided to a brutal repression in order to stop this civic movement.”
