Thousands of Sri Lankans living in the United States stood in solidarity with their fellow Sri Lankans in a protest series organized by the Sri Lankan Student Collective in the USA.
The protests took place across 50 locations in 43 States in the US.
The Sri Lankans in America also signed a series of letters requesting that the wealth and income of Rajapaksa’s who hold US citizenship, be investigated and to save Sri Lanka from the Rajapaksas.
