Nepal: Maoists Rally for Nationwide Strike
Posted by onehundredflowers on December 6, 2009
From Neil Horning:
Thousands of Maoists held a torch procession tonight in preparation for a nationwide Banda (closure) tomorrow [Dec. 6th – moderator]. The action was called in retaliation of an incident in Kailali district on Friday. Police had used deadly force in removing thousands of Maoist aligned landless squatters from forest land.
