Political Protests

Took a family trip to the Columbo park in Lipton Circus yesterday, only to be confronted by the beginnings of a protest regarding the political turmoil that is happening out here. “Waiter, This isn’t what we ordered, please make it go away” 🙂

Basically, an opposition movement in Sri Lanka is using the country’s economic issues as a political weapon against the current governing party. The government is struggling to deal with a mountain of debt inherited from the previous administration.

Explained much better here, with the irony of the situation included.
