We are the Aragalaya that stood upto corruption, nepotism and cronyism. We want to see a just and equitable Sri Lanka so that our children and grand children don't have to fight this battle with another generation of corrupt rulers and a corrupt system that enables them.

1/5 Image The brave young men and women at GGG and protests across the nation inspired us, made us dream that change is possible in our lifetime.

Thank you Mr. President for saving us from the scary foreign influencer lady. Thank you for detaining the very bad mug bandit. Thank you for saving us from the terrorist who sat in the presidents chair. The horror.

Thanks for arresting the extremist priest, monk and the scary trade Union dude... Imagine the nerve to call himself Stalin and demand meaningful change, I mean they really are the worst. What's a Ratta anyway? Sounds bloody dodgy.

As the new President enjoys the pomp and ceremony today as parliament reconvenes, here are a few nuggets of news to ponder on that is all overseen and implicitly or explicitly happening under his administration.

1. Prasanna Ranatunga appoints a close relative to the position of UDA chairman. He was also appointed to various positions when the said minister was handling the tourism portfolio.

Since we are measuring the value of things, what's the value of the lives lost to the Easter bombings? What's the value of lives taken and livelihoods destroyed due to the economic crisis?

What's the value of your time spent in endless queues? What's the value of the loss of education for our children and what's the value of the price we pay daily for corruption, nepotism and cronyism?

On social media Just hours earlier some of the hard core baiyyas and secret baiyyas were cheering the beating of journalists and then later they are outraged about a house burning down 🙄

They would love nothing more than the focus being on this damn house.

When people are pushed to the edge, and when leaders have to be thrown out for ignoring the will of the people & playing games with their lives, you will always have acts of spontaneous anger, IF that's what it was

No one condones it. A rich man will rebuild his house.

Move on

No one, absolutely no one asked Ranil to jump in and try save the Rajapaksas and accept the PM position.

Gota was hanging on despite plunging this country into a catastrophic economic crisis. Both have no shame, no guilt no empathy.

If they listened to the will of the people, which they were denying, none of this would be nessesary.

They have to be literally dragged out and chased away with no dignity at all.

That's how greedy and power hungry they are.
