Posted by redpines on September 10, 2011

 On September 9, 2011, over 20,000 people gathered in Nepal’s Gorkha district to celebrate the Martyr’s Memorial Day.

The gathering commemorated the 1999 martyrdom of  Suresh Wagle, an alternative Politburo member and Bhimsen Pokharel, commander of a guerrilla group of the People’s Liberation Army. 

Thanks to Krishna Tamu for sharing these photos with us.
