Protests Turn Violent In Sri Lanka As Armed Police Fire Rounds Into The Crowds

Protests continue across Sri Lanka, as much needed essential items like food and gas and electricity have run low and, in some cases, run out and the citizens are the ones suffering for it.

As a result, the civil unrest has swept through the developing nation and for some reason, the Sri Lankan police thought it was a clever idea to simply fire rounds into crowds of protestors.

Sri Lanka is an island, located in South Asia and the protests have been raging on since March, when the country was plunged into one of the worst recessions it has seen in 74 years.

Rapid inflation and the gargantuan rise in the cost of living, alongside government corruption and mismanagement of the country’ economy – has led to calls for the left-wing government to step down.

Unsurprisingly, the government is not prepared to give up power and the protests continue to grow more violent and protests and police have died since they began.

A member of parliament, Amarakeerthi Athukorala, and his bodyguard were also beaten to death by a mob.

Sri Lankan army troops fired into a crowd on June 18, in the small town of Visuvamadu, after the local gas station ran dry. The army personnel along with armed police were stationed there to guard the gas station, when around thirty people gathered in a mob, according to spokesperson Nilantha Premaratne.

“A group of 20 to 30 people pelted stones and damaged an army truck,” said Premaratne. 

Premaratne claimed that the army personnel had no other choice but to fire into the crowd to protect itself and a police report said that there were four protestors and three soldiers wounded in the incident.

Police also noted that there were other clashes between motorists and protestors and as a result, at least six police officers were wounded, and several protestors were arrested.

Data from the United Nations shows that four out of five people in Sri Lanka, have had to skip meals because food has become so unaffordable and added that the island country is heading to a “dire humanitarian crisis.”

The World Food Program, has been distributing food vouchers to pregnant women as part of its “life-saving assistance” operations in Sri Lanka and the agency is hoping to raise another $60 million in food relief effort, starting this month and running through to the end of the year.

The government has done extraordinarily little to help its people, however, and what about all they have done is shut down schools and state institutions in an attempt to reduce the amount of commuting which is quickly depleting the country’s fuel supplies.

Public sector workers will also now only have a four-day work week, which they hope will also save fuel stores and apparently the free day they have been given is for them to grow their own food.

  1. This is the desired effect for the Globalists idiots. It will seemingly take Divine intervention for this evil to be upended and at this point I’m not certain that is going to come as this world is very depraved and may well be deserving of what it is witnessing.

    1. No this is exactly what’s supposed to happen in the end times, it’s not surprising it’s normal history is already written so accept it and be on the right side

  2. Women have the power toend all suffering in this world, and change this world for the better, Women controll the womb. Stop giving the globalists what they want . More slaves. Just stop having kids. Stop feeding their machine. If ALL women accross the world came together as one, and were united in controlling the berthing, and left men out of everything, them women wouold once again control everything, and the balance of nature, and this planet would return , and population wouod be greatly reduced. Women would ALL be greatly educated, and run the world NOT Men.
