Something remarkable is happening. A whole generation of people has never seen a radical, secular, revolutionary movement rise with popular support. And yet here it is – in Nepal today. This movement has abolished the medieval monarchy and is challenging the caste system — all under the radical banner of Maoist communism.

The other remarkable thing is that almost no one knows this is happening. The media has black it out. And we can’t allow that to continue.
