Colombo (LNW): “Aragalaya” People’s Protest, the biggest people’s movement in the recent history of Sri Lanka since the Hartal Movement in 1953 and the first one ever to actually oust a Sri Lankan Head of State, marks its first anniversary today (09).

The people of Sri Lanka who were beyond exhausted amidst the worst economic crisis befallen the island nation since Independence took their voice to the streets and assembled themselves as the “Aragalaya” People’s Movement, and on a historic day, July 09, 2022, hundreds of thousands of citizens from all over the country marched towards Colombo and demanded the stepping down of former President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and his Regime. The protesters then raided the Presidential Secretariat, Temple Trees and the President’s House.

The voice of the people of the “Aragalaya” was so powerful that Gotabaya Rajapaksa the ex President not only had to announce his resignation but also was driven to flee the country on a ship the very next moment.
