Nepal Solidarity
09 May 2002
Modified: 10 May 2002
The conflict in Nepal rages between the murderous state and the murderous Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist). Human rights groups have condemned both sides, yet President Bush has promised $20 million to the Nepali state. To counter the hegemony, we have created the Nepal Solidarity Network.
Announcing the creation of the Nepal Solidarity Network, a tool to fight the state consensus in the struggle for a true and just peace in Nepal.

Please pass this on to anyone who may be interested:


The Nepal Solidarity Network is meant to be a resource for people committed to working to help resolve the ongoing conflict in Nepal and working toward a true and just peace, rather than a solution by military force by either side. We hope to avoid needless bloodshed of any human being, and work for economic and social justice and true democracy in Nepal. We are nonpartisan and do not affiliate ideologically with either side in the conflict, but wish to work in solidarity with the people of Nepal, who like all people deserve to live dignified lives in peace. But, very importantly, a true and just peace doesn't simply mean a lack of bloodshed. It also includes the need to focus on issues of structural violence: economic inequality, global imperialism, caste/race oppression, patriarchal oppression, and other forms of "quiet" violence that partly underlie the current conflict. These issues must at least be included in the dialogue. Without addressing these issues, a cease-fire will be a welcome yet hollow peace.

with Chairman Prachanda

maps of Nepal

On February 13, 1996, coordinated armed raids
and attacks involving thousands of men and
women opened a new and glorious chapter in the
history of Nepal.

Under the leadership of the Communist Party of
Nepal (Maoist), the masses launched a new
People's War, aimed at sweeping away
imperialism, feudalism and bureaucrat capitalism.
And for over three years now, the revolution in
Nepal has continued to spread, sink roots and
accomplish a lot.

All this is a truly inspiring and significant
development in the world. But it has remained a
hidden story for most people in the United States
and around the world. And for those of us who have
been following the People's War in Nepal, there
has been precious, but far too little news of this
important struggle.

Now, the Revolutionary Worker has an exclusive
story. RW reporter Li Onesto visited Nepal for
several months in spring 1999 and traveled
throughout the country with the people's army,
meeting and talking with party leaders, guerrillas,
activists in mass organizations and villagers--those
waging this genuine Maoist People's War and
beginning to exercise new people's power.
