  1. I think srilanka and it's cabinet should have the power to remove the leader who is destroying the nation.
    Srilanka need a new article for CM
    The public and cabinet should choose who should run the country not the leaders

  2. Another Asian country falls prey to the Chinese debt trap. Granted, there were other factors, but the Chinese are probably celebrating right now thinking of how they can capitalise on the crisis.

  3. wow I applaud these people they sure know how to get an official out that's corrupt out of office that was voted in in the US were stuck with one but the American people would never do this they don't have the guts and the courage they'd rather suffer our forefathers would be ashamed of them allowing an administration like this to take over in the American people just sit on their butts playing on iPhones

  4. lnvesting in crypto now shouId be in every wise individuaIs Iist, in some months time you'II be ecstatic with the decision you made today.Most intelligent words I've heard.


  6. Sri Lanka should merge in India if they don't do it No one can save Sri Lanka from China debt and western countries indirect involvement in Sri Lanka administration 🇮🇳

  7. Mr., Prime Minister,

    Having listened to you addressing the nation we the people have this to say. We are grateful to all stakeholders who were responsible for saving the nation by wining of the separatist war. However please don’t keep repeatedly using this as your governments credentials to stay in power. This victory belongs to all who sacrificed in many ways and not only you.

    You try to show that currently the people are discrediting and acting against the tri-forces and the police. This is wrong we love them, and you will see this from the people’s actions. But perhaps not the few who are behaving like a private brigade loyal to your regime. People want the forces and the police to stand with the people in winning the war against your family. Please don’t forget what you did to SF who was a vital stakeholder in winning the war.

    You quote doom and gloom incidents from post-independence history. While agreeing with your facts we feel that they are being used in the wrong context and for your own benefit without sincerity. Please note that the present protest is not led by a set of politically insighted, ignorant and disillusioned lot of people but by a well informed, educated, professional and a non-party political lot. You can see that by the way Galle Face protest was manged with meticulous organising and discipline with people controlling and being accountable for each other’s actions.

    Lastly while the people are fully aware of the impact of the Covid and the inactiveness of “Yahapalayna” regime the people are sick and tired of the corruption, theft, uppishness, and non-professional mismanagement of your regime, which is the root cause of where we are as a country and not the Covid or “Yahapalayna” regime. Especially the people are sick of the fact that in your regime there is no space for anyone other than Rajapakses and their stooges.

    So, enough is enough please step down with grace!

    Please forward this to all!

  8. 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.)

    For the mystery of lawlessness is already working. Only He who is now restraining him will do so until He is taken out of the way. Then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth, and destroy with the brightness of His presence, 2 Thessalonians 2:7

    (Obs: Who is restraining the antichrist? Who is stopping the antichrist from rising? The elect; those who are saved and sealed by the Holy Spirit because of the Christ! When the elect are raptured, the antichrist will take over. Rapture will trigger the great tribulation and the government of the antichrist.)

    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 — keep 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.

  9. Indian BJP regime have NO money to pay GST money to Tamilnadu who pay the second largest tax money but pouring billions of dollars to save the Sinhala barbaric War Criminals regime.
    Very soon Tamilnadu people think that what is the point of being in UNION of India as India robbing billions Tax from Tamilnadu but paying to War Criminals regime in Srilanka while the Indian BJP regime refuse to pay GST money 20000cr to Tamilnadu
    Racist India abusing the trust of Tamilnadu for long

  10. In Tamil Nation, very very few protests cos the Sinhala racist military usually use heavy weapons against Tamils whenever they try to protest but the same military very reluctant to use such killing weapons against Sinhalese.
    And also Tamils did not vote for the War Criminals regime but Sinhala racist majority people voted for the War Criminals despite they directly involved in the Genocide, of Tamils in 2009, in which 146700 were butally killed by the Srilankan military with the help of 20 countries and also by Using banned chemical weapons against the brave Tamkl fighters.

  11. In other countries, when people demand the president to step down, then presidents listen. But in Sri Lanka, the Rajapaksa family is greedy for the money.

  12. Reports confirms that the total wealth of Rajapaksas is more than $100 billion. Most of this money is invested in Uganda. They own islands in Maldives. Hotels in Seychelles. Properties all around the world. We need to arrest these thieves and reclaim our people's stolen money back.

  13. Protests are now suspect.Protests are now funded by Foriegn powers.Democracies have rules and fresh elections alone must decide.But media now has weaponised democratic right to protest manipulating regine changes.Nobody knows who these powers want to set up as your rulers So every nations people must be careful in not getting carried away by organized protests.Othereuse only you people will suffer like Libyans and Ukranians.Your choice.

  14. Resign 'Rajapaksa Family' and Face 'Public Trial as Srilanka is in Financial Crisis and Citizens are in Poverty !!👍✊

  15. No more protest must be done to these family feeding people beat them and drag them in public and make to leave them a poor life for daily vages cut all allovences and cut country citizenship to all members of dynasty family ask them to leave for daily vages

  16. Even police officers are joining the protest.there are soldiers who want to take their arms against the command

  17. මර්තු 31දා මිරිහානෙන් පටන් ගත් මෙ සාමකාමි අරගලය, මහාවන්සයේ ලියවිය යුතුයි. මැතකාලයේ සිටින දරුනුම අමානුසික ශ්‍රි ලන්කා නායකු දෙදෙනුකු සේ සැලකේන මිනිමරුවන් දෙදෙනෙක්ට විරුද්දව කරන අරගලය මහාවන්සයේ ලියවිය යුතුයි ( copy this to others much as possible)🇱🇰🇱🇰🇱🇰🇱🇰🇱🇰
