Watch live: protests in Sri Lanka | DW News



Sri Lanka’s prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has declared a nationwide state of emergency. The move comes just hours after president Gotabaya Rajapaksa and his wife fled to the nearby Maldives on a military jet.
Fresh protests are taking place with police firing tear gas at a crowd outside the prime minister’s residence. Demonstrators have been storming government buildings, demanding that both leaders step down immediately. The president HAD promised to resign today — it’s believed he left the country to avoid being arrested after losing his presidential immunity. Protesters blame him and his long-ruling family for Sri Lanka’s worst economic crisis in decades with daily power cuts and shortages of basics like fuel, food, and medicines.

  1. This protest is fueled by JVP terrorists from UK, Germany, and Canada. Countries need to understand terrorism will bounce back one day… for now it's a threat to India.

  2. This is going to erupt in the EU very shortly. Don't believe me? Look at throughout history when the rich have tried to keep the poorer people down. Slave revolts happened quite frequently and general people clung to anything to get rid of the current rulers. Pre World War Two, Europe was in a constant state of warfare all the way back to before Jesus was born. It's only in the past ~70 years Europe hasn't been at each others throats. It's coming back. The writing is most definitely on the wall. When the rich take away the civilians food supply, there is going to be unrest. Wait, it is already starting to happen.
