Jofre Rodriguez, 18, who was injured during a protest against Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro's government, poses for a photograph at his home in Turmero, Venezuela, August 11, 2017. Rodriguez said his jaw was fractured by a gunshot on June 26, 2017. He underwent surgery to remove a projectile that was lodged in a vertebra but he still needs treatment and jaw reconstruction surgery. "This constituent assembly is a perversion meant to consolidate them (the ruling party) in power. I'm protesting against that. It saddens me to see my country like this. With Chavez, we had a dictatorship with a 'political leader,' with Maduro we have a political disaster," he said. "I'm only 18 years old, but I'm living through the decline of Venezuela. Was it worth it? Yes, like those who died, what happened to me was a sacrifice that has inspired many people in the struggle." REUTERS/Ueslei Marcelino
