In Sri Lanka, Catholic priests and reverend sisters have joined the ongoing protest against the country’s economic problems.
Recall that numerous ministers including the governor of the central bank in Sri Lanka resigned in the wake of nationwide protests over gasoline shortages and economic hardship.
Despite the fact that the country’s president announced a state of emergency and imposed a curfew in portions of the city to quell the increasingly violent rallies, protestors disregarded the curfew and continued to take to the streets to demand the President’s resignation.
In Colombo, Sri Lanka, ordained Catholic priests and reverend nuns have now joined the demonstration.
Photos show the priests and sisters dressed in their religious habits while carrying placards to raise awareness about the hardship citizens are facing.
