Sri Lankans living in the United States also staged a protest in New York as President Gotabaya Rajapaksa attended the United Nations General Assembly.

Protestors in Velona city commented that organisations representing Sri Lankans in many other countries are preparing to hold protests of the same nature demanding justice for the victims and that ri Lankans living overseas will be pressuring the government as a joint force.
