BREAKING: Presidential Resignation Announcement Stuns Nation [Read More Here]

Protesters around the world including Los Angeles and Staten Island demanded the resignation of Sri Lanka’s President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and his brother, Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa due to the collapse of the country’s currency and shortages of most needed goods in the country.

Food, basic medical supplies, gasoline, and electricity all experienced severe shortages that have intensified over the last month.

Hospitals have canceled surgeries because they can’t get anesthesia medication and supplies, and the government has imposed power outages of up to 13 hours a day.

Some of the protests have turned violent in Sri Lanka as citizens demand that solutions to the shortages be proposed. Hundreds of protesters rushed the presidential residence in Columbo, leading to injuries and arrests.

“Sri Lanka is facing a century of humiliation and shame as the Rajapaksa family is selling the island off to foreign powers to stay in power,” opposition journalist Sanka Chandima Abayawardena wrote. “Sri Lanka is in deep economic trouble.
