TOPSHOT - An opposition activist clashes with the riot police during a march against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro held on May Day, in Caracas on May 1, 2017. 
Venezuela's beleaguered President Nicolas Maduro on Monday called for a new constitution, to be written by a "people's" body circumventing the opposition-held Congress. The decree was to "block the fascist coup" threatening the country, he told thousands of supporters in Caracas at a May Day rally.
