The President isn't the only one accused of blackmail. The Guardian interviewed several Venezuelans who are frustrated by the situation. One, 24-year-old social media manager Andrea Ramírez, said, "Unless you stay overnight, praying the bachaqueros [black market traders] don't cut the line with violent threats, you can't find deodorant, shampoo, soap, flour, rice, pasta, margarine, milk, formulas for babies, diapers, oil, beans, sanitary pads, toilet paper, you name it. Conversation always circles around food; what people didn't find and what they need. The only way to buy them is on the black market."
