Sri Lanka’s Political Crisis

After months of protests defined by chants of ‘Gota go home’, Sri Lanka's demonstrators can claim a major breakthrough. Gotabaya Rajapaksa, whose family has held political domination over the island nation for close to two decades has fled the country. Last week, the now former president was forced out of office after thousands of protestors- angered by an economic collapse they say he engineered stormed his residence in the capital. And once his resignation was confirmed, many came out to celebrate.
