Food Riots In Sri Lanka Turn Deadly As Protesters Beat Up Police, Burn Down Politicians’ Houses

Zero Hedge: Two months ago, we noted the first Arab Spring 2.0 incident when, as a result of soaring food, energy (and everything else) prices, thousands of angry Iraqis took to the street to protest. Needless to say, their complaints did not get much traction, and in the meantime food prices have only exploded to fresh record highs, far surpassing the levels hit in 2011 when riots against, you guessed it, food prices toppled most MENA political regimes (not without some CIA backing).

And as food prices keep rising, the protests across poor nations keep escalating, and on Thursday protests broke out in Iran leading to at least 22 arrests, after the government cut subsidies for food, sending prices through the roof as authorities braced for more unrest in the following weeks, Fox News reports.

In videos shared on social media, protesters can be seen marching through Dezful and Mahshahr in the southwestern province of Khezestan, chanting “Death to Khamenei! Death to Raisi!” referring to Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi has promised to create jobs, lift sanctions, and rescue the economy. more

  3. Exactly why they fence off their DC buildings – they know their policies are going to drive instability and chaos. Sure would be a shame if the scum they directed to harass SCOTUS members turned on them.

  5. The people in poor countries with no “2nd Amendment” get out and burn politicians’ homes. The Pols are driving this country into poverty and want to abolish the 2nd Amendment.

  7. They’re screwed, blued, and tattooed if these Communist democRATz let it get to the Midterms. They have to pull some more crisis outta their collective asses in order to justify clamping down on Americans with conceivably martial law in order to stay in power. They grabbed (stole) the power in 2020 and they’re not about to give it up easily! Prepare for the worst cuz itz about to get Midevil!

  8. There’s all kinds of predictions coming out that the SWHTF by the end of September. This one sounds plausible. Has anyone heard about the rioting going in in Colon (Panama Canal)? It’s affecting the movement of goods going through the canal putting a greater strain on the supply chain. Why haven’t we heard anything about it – news is silent. The commentator below is located in the Ukraine.

  9. Filthy POCs!

    The only way to right a ship of state is to throw money. VOAT HARDERER helps. But that’s what Judeus Christ already told you to do. So, throw money.

    Stupid POCs.

  10. I’m guessing the supply chain will be patched up enough to divert our food supply to the third world. And you’d better not be growing a garden, Putin-lovers.

  11. GOOD.

    Think about the concept of shortages of Baby Formula in North America & The White House Response.

    What will the Trans Birthing people who had their Breasts removed do now.
