  1. Today peoples are begging to leave from throne .May be tomorrow their entire family will beg to come out from cell 🤔

  2. The only way available is a Srilankan version of a French revolution. But no child should be touched.

  3. DEMON RAJAPAKSA FAMILY MEMBERS GO OUT FROM POWER in Parliament and govt po posts:

    Gotabaya is a DEMON. This demon must go out for the sake 22 Millions of Srilankan people.

  4. When this evil leaders killed Tamils, that time people support them, now see what is happening.

  5. Karma is a kicker, self inflicted collapse, citizens chose greedy incompentant family with majority vote. Can't blame ruling family when they are a reflection of the people who voted them into power. Change needs to come from the people.

  6. Over 13 hrs of power cuts and people dieng in hospitals cuz they don't have the basic necessities and meds

  7. The four Rajapaksa brothers active in politics, including President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, rule Sri Lanka with an iron hand. They have ruined the island nation’s economy in only a couple of years, the media reports said.

    Anger against the Rajapaksa’s handling of a deepening economic crisis spiraled into violence. A severe shortage of foreign currency has left the government unable to pay for essential imports, including fuel, leading to debilitating power cuts lasting up to 13 hours.

    The four brothers accused of destroying the Sri Lankan economy are President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, Mahinda (Prime Minister), Basil (Finance Minister), and Chamal (Irrigation Minister), among other clan members, who control Sri Lanka.

    Mahinda is a hero to the Sinhala-Buddhist majority for crushing separatist Tamil rebels in May 2009 following a brutal military offensive that ended a decades-long civil war. Over 40,000 civilians died, but he refused an international probe.

    During his rule, Sri Lanka moved closer to China, borrowing almost USD 7 billion for infrastructure projects, many of which turned into white elephants mired in corruption.

    Because of an acute shortage of foreign currency and failure to pay the debt, the government had to ban imports. Sri Lanka’s heavily tourism-dependent economy was first hit by the Easter Sunday Islamist attacks of 2019 and later torpedoed by Covid-19 as jobless expatriates could not remit money.

    As if it was not enough, experts say, the Rajapaksa’s expensive lifestyles at the cost of the exchequer, deep-rooted corruption, years of economic mismanagement, including chronic budget deficits and ill-advised tax cuts, pushed the island nation into the abyss.

    Finance Minister Basil Rajapaksa is known as “Mr. Ten Percent” because of the commissions he allegedly took from government contracts. All cases registered against him were dropped by his President-brother.

    By the last week, the island nation slipped into such dire straits that it has no fuel, cooking gas, street lights, milk, paper, and other essential commodities.

    Sri Lanka is struggling to pay for essential imports after a 70 percent drop in foreign exchange reserves in two years, to a paltry USD 2.31 billion in February 2022, which led to a currency devaluation. Its January trade deficit stood at USD 859 million, the country’s central bank said in a statement on Friday. The January imports rose 23.1 percent to USD 1.96 billion, while exports rose 17.5 percent to USD 1.10 billion. Its retail inflation hit 18.7 percent in March over the same period a year ago, and food inflation reached 30.2 percent in March.

  9. This government was elected by Sinhalese to work against minorities (Tamil. Muslim) and now they are paying the price for it !!

  11. Will they are desperely to eat Poison everyday is Poison they wat in Sri Lanka if they don't have they poison they will poison they President we what Poison Now LOL 🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂

  12. I have a feeling America now that they destabilised Pakistan, they know they can launch a coup or bring the government in Sri Lanka Down but no good candidates so they may bring the Tamils there a separate state by force for geopolitical advantage

  13. Keep it up my SL friends,
    Rajapaksa please give up, let SRI LA Lanka to survive, come back to USA.
    We will prosecute Rajapaksas here in USA.
    Support from California, USA

  14. American economy being partially run by the Sri Lankan national"s wealth which had been plundered by the Sri Lankan president Gota and his colleagues who made fatten up the American banks
    הכלכלה האמריקנית מנוהלת בחלקה על ידי העושר הלאומי של סרי לנקה שנשדד על ידי נשיא סרי לנקה גוטה ועמיתיו שהפיחו את הבנקים האמריקאים

  17. You talk like reading from the toilet 😂
    Please WION you're not some youtuber in home, try to use high quality equipments with clear audio or change the girl

  18. Srilanka is probably the most beautiful country in Asia with rich hearts of people I hope soon all rajapakshes resigns and country will come back to its old days

  19. They have it easy. They're not being bombed and shelled to hell like what's happening to the Ukrainians and Syrians.

  20. All robber, crony, nepotist criminal leaders of countries need to go, including where I live in the US. Our Senate in the US Congress has every single member as a multi-millionaire. The longer they sit in the Senate, the more their wealth grows from insider trading tips, and other business perks AND, when they leave government, they often then go serve in the industry for the Senate Committee they governed on. Like if they were on the Finance Committee, they will be offered to sit on the Board of a Wall Street investment firm or bank. All the corrupt government officials enriching themselves from their elected position need to be removed. Go get them Sri Lanka and demand reforms (not just the removal of dirty politicians) that future leaders cannot remove unless the people vote for it, and make it a punishment by death if leaders embezzle, steal or enrich themselves from office.

  21. The Rajapaksa family is only part of the problem. The other problem is the power the fascist Budhist monks wield. These same people who are now wanting the ouster of this regime will vote again for the Rajapaksas once this crisis is over. They are reaping what they sow. I rather see this simmer a bit more. As they say, suffering is necessary before anything good can come out of it.

  22. China's BRI is the main cause of financial collapse in Sri Lanka.

    China has lured Sri Lanka to borrow an enormous amount of money at an unreasonably high interest rate Sri Lanka can't afford to repay,
    to build extravagant infrastructure Sri Lanka doesn't really need for healthy economic growth.

    China's debt trap for Sri Lanka has significantly reduced Sri Lanka's financial resilience to international financial risks.

    China is the main culprit behind Sri Lanka financial crisis.

  23. As He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?” Jesus answered them, “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled. For all these things must happen, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines, epidemics, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. “Then they will hand you over to be persecuted and will kill you. And you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. Then many will fall away, and betray one another, and hate one another. And many false prophets will rise and will deceive many. Because iniquity will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. Matthew 24:3‭-14 MEV

    (Obs: From the beginning of the tribulation to the end there are 7 years. Near the end, the gospel will be preached to the whole world, which would be impossible without technology of global communication.)

    “When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then you know that its desolation has drawn near. Luke 21:20 MEV

    “So when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place,(…) Matthew 24:15 MEV

    “His armies shall rise up and desecrate the sanctuary fortress. They shall abolish the daily sacrifice and set up the abomination that makes desolate. Daniel 11:31 MEV

    “From the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away and the abomination that makes desolate set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days. Daniel 12:11 MEV

    (Obs: These events will take place after the construction of the third temple of Solomon in Jerusalem.)

    (…)then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. Let him who is in the field not return to take his clothes. Woe to those who are with child and to those who nurse in those days! Pray that your escape will not be in the winter or on the Sabbath. For then will be great tribulation, such as has not happened since the beginning of the world until now, no, nor ever shall be. “Unless those days were shortened, no one would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. Matthew 24:16‭-22 MEV

    There will be signs in the sun and the moon and the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men fainting from fear and expectation of what is coming on the inhabited earth. For the powers of heaven will be shaken. Luke 21:25-26 MEV

    (Obs: In the age of technology, men know what is happening on the inhabited earth, no longer are they limited by local information.)

    “Immediately after the tribulation of those days, ‘the sun will be darkened, the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.’ “Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other. Matthew 24:29‭-31 MEV

    (Obs: This is the sixth seal of the book of Revelation, the signs of the sixth seal match the signs of Matthew 24:29-30, the sixth seal is when the rapture happens; before the great tribulation, before the seven trumpets.)

    When these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, for your redemption is drawing near. Luke 21:28 MEV

    Because you have kept My word of patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation which shall come upon the entire world, to test those who dwell on the earth. Revelation 3:10 MEV

    (Obs: Rapture before the time of temptation, which will be the government of the antichrist during the great tribulation.)

    For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 1 Thessalonians 4:16 MEV

    (Obs: Rapture.)

    For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Matthew 24:38‭-‬39 MEV

    (Obs: People will not be eating and drinking and marrying during the great tribulation, therefore, rapture will happen before the great tribulation, when people are still distracted.)

    When they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor upon a woman with child, and they shall not escape. 1 Thessalonians 5:3 MEV

    (Obs: Sudden destruction near the rapture.)

    Two will be in the field; one will be taken, and the other left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken, and the other left. Matthew 24:40‭-41 MEV

    (Obs: Rapture.)

    Know this first, that there shall come scoffers in the last days who walk after their own lusts, and say, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things have continued as they were since the beginning of the creation.” 2 Peter 3:3‭-4 MEV

    (Obs: Apostasy of the last days, when more and more men are denying God and going after their own sinful desires.)

    But the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a loud noise, and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat. The earth also and the works that are in it will be burned up. 2 Peter 3:10 MEV

    (Obs: The destructions that will happen after the rapture, just as the days of Sodom and Gomorrah; the righteous are rescued and the judgements are poured upon the wicked. "like a thief in the night" means it will happen when you do not expect. "heavens will pass away" means the sky will vanish as a scroll that is being rolled up, which is mentioned in Revelation 6:14.)

    In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet, for the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 1 Corinthians 15:52 MEV

    (Obs: People around the world have been hearing trumpets from the sky in different times, it has been happening for a few years. When the last trumpet sound, the redeemed will be rescued and the great tribulation will begin.)

    He causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, so that no one may buy or sell, except he who has the mark or the name of the beast or the number of his name. Revelation 13:16‭-17 MEV

    (Obs: In the last days, no one will be able to buy or sell without a mark from the government/beast of the antichrist, which will take place during the great tribulation, which is at the door.)

    But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” Daniel 12:4 MEV

    (Obs: In the last days, many people travel to many places and knowledge is increased.)

    “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16 MEV

    Behold, the Lord of lords is coming soon, repent now of all your sins — stay away from all sins — and abide in the only Savior and Lord Jesus the Christ (Yeshua the Messiah) with all your heart, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
