For months, protesters have been chanting ‘Go Home’ at Sri Lanka’s most powerful political family.

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and his brother, Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa, are accused of corruption and mismanaging the economy.

Mahinda’s resignation on Monday failed to quell public anger.

Shortages of fuel, food and medicine brought thousands onto the streets in protests that had been mostly peaceful until this week.

Where does Sri Lanka go from here?
