  1. The root cause of Sri Lanka's crisis is excessive borrowing of International sovereign bonds from capital markets. The previous Wickramasinghe gov had taken 12. 5 billion dollars worth sovereign bonds. We have to pay back 1 billion per year. Since our economy was hit during corona and we have to pay the International sovereign bond loans, SL has been downgraded by international rating agencies. So SL companies cannot open an Letter of credit to import diesel n petrol. We have to pay the spot rate. Thats the problem SL faces now and the reason for shortages

  2. The Rajapaksas have doomed the entire country. This is what happens when a family runs a nation like its personal business.

  3. What really happened to srilanka 🙄🙄😭
    People should fight against government and rajapaksas corruption 😭😭😭

  4. prepare for the global blackout. klaus schwab. called it great reset. its the banking system reset after weeks of blackout

  5. India is saving so much money buying oil in black market turn around and loan that money to Sri Lanka so that they get another country in debt. Which is great for India not good for Sri Lankan

  6. GREAT COVERAGE, THERE. Yep. Sound byte that focuses on the EFFECT and effectively dodges the CAUSE… as well as under-reporting the widespread social unrest:
    "HUNDREDS" instead of a Thousand. "Some number" of protesters outside of a government office… THEN a glance at a major CAUSE: CORRUPTION in a family-run "FRANCHISE" form of Government. PAY TO PLAY.
    YEP. Here it is: A model, a Market Test for the FUTURE of the GLOBAL VILLAGE.
    Well… It's a JOB. Hope it pays well and that you get to keep it.
    Shame on you. And a POX on the Komodo DRAGONS 🐉 Staging the COLLAPSE and steering the "fix".
    DEVOLUTION in progress. Run the OTHER WAY!

  7. Mornings 5 clock to elven without electricity
    Similarly five o clock evenings to 12 o clock
    This time not sleeping time
    But it is the correct if electricity problem incresed
    For home use
    But health related is main to continuing electricity supply

  8. If you have been to sri lanka you know how friendly and kind people we have in our country .The leaders are misusing their tolerance.They have suffered a lot during the past years,and these are NOT generally poor or struggling to live kind of people . They used to lead a good life with their families and everything is turning other way round. Yesterday there was a peaceful protest in colombo and there were no extremists involved. They were just innocent people who could not stand the immence pressure anymore. This is not a problem of a single nationality or a religion, but of all the sri lankans together.sinhalese, tamils, muslims , ..all are in this together.


  10. Top government sources, while not naming the US, had earlier this month said that countries with oil self-sufficiency cannot “credibly advocate” restrictive trading with Russia.

  11. Just goes to show why we need to ditch the dollar as world trading currency, only serves to benefit the Americans and nations tied to the dollar…🤣🤣🤣🤣

  12. 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, which takes 7 years, and 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 will travel to many places and knowledge will be 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.
