GotaGoGama protest reaches 60th day


The GotaGoGama protest, in front of the Presidential Secretariat, continues for the 60th day, today (7). The protesters continue their efforts, demanding the President to resign. The protest started on 9 April and has been continuing daily, despite adverse weather and the 9 May ‘Black Monday’ attacks on the protest site.

Protesters blame the Government for the mismanaging the economy, which has caused a hike in the prices of goods and the country’s reserves being reduced to a record low level. A persistent shortage of foreign currency and soaring inflation has led to a severe shortage of medicines, fuel and other essentials.
