Nepal: Ring The Bell Loudly

Posted by Mike E on January 24, 2010

By Mike Ely

To put this as bluntly as I can:

The Nepali Maoists are preparing right now (i mean over the next few weeks) for what-may-be a decisive military/political confrontation with the reactionary government and army.

The insurrection they have been preparing so carefully and so long may take place over the next two months.

The Maoists are seeking to mobilize the people (based on the understanding that their enemies will be wanting to act closely with Indian intrigues, and can be isolated by exposing those intrigues.) Their Indian, Nepali and American enemies understand this. Their revolutionary core base knows this. And we need to know it.

I will be ringing this bell loudly, and more loudly… and I want you to join me in ringing this bell.

Everyone we know and meet should start to consider how they can discuss and explain this important revolution in (what may be) its most bold and desperate hour.

Badal warns of mobilisation of Maoist PLA fighters

Bara: UCPN (Maoist) General Secretary Ram Bahadur Thapa ‘Badal’ has said that the cantoned People Liberation Army (PLA) combatants could be mobilised against meddlesome foreign forces. “We will direct the PLA fighters to fight a war if any foreign power centre tries to interfere in our internal affairs and encroach upon our territory,” said Thapa at a programme organised by the Maoist party’s Bhojpura-Madhesh State Committee in memory of activists Ram Prakash Yadav, Dara Yadav, Ambika Mahato and Rajesh Mandal, whom unknown armed groups had murdered recently.

“The government, with help from India, is trying its best to make our party LTTE. But we will make the government bite the dust,” said Thapa. He blamed India for protecting the murderers of the four Maoist cadre. He went on to claim that plots were being hatched to derail the peace process and dissolve the elected Constituent Assembly.
