Venezuelan security forces used tear gas against pro-opposition protesters in the country's capital during May Day demonstrations, Venezuelan National Assembly member Jose Manuel Olivares said Monday.

Axar.az reports citing to Sputnik the lawmaker attached a video showing militia members firing tear gas canisters at a crowd of protesters.
"The National Bolivarian Militia is senselessly attacking us in the El Paraiso [district of Caracas], they have no justification for that," Olivares said while streaming on Periscope.

Venezuela's opposition has continued to ratchet heat up on the country's government, converging two major protests in the capital a month after the outbreak of mass unrest amid the standoff between President Nicolas Maduro and the opposition-controlled parliament. Pro-Maduro protests are also planned in the capital to mark May Day.
