Sri Lankans occupy president’s office entrance for second day

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (AP) – Sri Lankan protesters occupied the entrance to the president’s office for a second day yesterday, demanding Gotabaya Rajapaksa resign over the debt-ridden country’s worst economic crisis in memory.

Hundreds of demonstrators weathered heavy rain with raincoats and umbrellas and chanted anti-government slogans. Some called for the entire Parliament to disband to make way for a younger leadership.

“We will stay on, we will leave only when we have chased them out,”32-year-old ex-soldier Sanjeewa Pushpakumara said of Rajapaksa, his family and all the lawmakers.
