A national holiday was held in the South American nation of Venezuela yesterday. It marked the beginning of the country’s fight for independence against Spain, which it eventually got in 1811. But on the streets of the Venezuelan capital, there were protests instead of celebrations.

昨日委内瑞拉这个南美国家的国家性假日。这一天标志着委内瑞拉开始对抗西班牙的控制。1811年,委内瑞拉最终取得独立。但是在委内瑞拉首都的街道上,充斥的是抗议活动而不是人们的庆祝。

This is a troubled nation with a lot of problems. Its economy has been in recession for three years and counting. Its unemployment rate is expected to go higher than 25 percent this year. Inflation is skyrocketing. That’s when prices go up and money buys less.

委内瑞拉已经陷入困境,该国面临很多问题。经济已经连续三年衰退。今年的失业率可能会继续上涨超过25%。通货膨胀飙升。 物价上涨,金钱贬值。

And opposition political parties want the country’s leader out of office. They accuse President Nicolas Maduro of creating a dictatorship over the past few years. He and his supporters pushed for a countermarch yesterday. President Maduro calls the opposition vandals, terrorists, and criminals, and he’s threatened to, quote, "capture them."

该国反对党派希望总统下台。他们指责在总统马杜罗在过去几年的执政期间,创建了一个独裁的政权。总统马杜罗和其支持者们于昨日推动了一场反游行活动。马杜罗称反对党为破坏者、恐怖分子、罪犯,并威胁到“捕获这些人”。

The Venezuelan armed forces which have said they fully support President Maduro have been deployed for as long as the marches last.

委内瑞拉武装部队表示,他们完全支持总统马杜罗。军队已经部署。

With all this going on, international pressure has been building on Venezuela’s government. The Organization of American States, which includes every government in the western hemisphere, says that unless Venezuela holds democratic elections, it could be suspended from the group.

随着事态的发酵,委内瑞拉政府也面临着国际的压力。美国国家组织,该组织囊括了西半球的所有国家,表示,唯一的途径就是进行民主选举。
