Nepal Revolution: Victory

The April Revolution in Nepal is a landmark in the country's history. People poured out into the streets for 19 days in all towns, villages, cities. The country was totally shut down. And the king caved in. This is a victory for non violence, for democracy.

Democracy For Nepal celebrated the obvious victory, but it is also guarded as to the Maoist response: 18 Days Of April Revolution: Victory, Maoist Reaction To Democratic Victory: Not Right, Declare Constituent Assembly On First Day Of Parliament.

Dinesh Wagle, the founder of United We Blog,was recently in New York City: and was extremely unhappy he had missed the April Revolution.

It appears that a constituent assembly finally feels possible, the Madhesi community needs to work to attain equality for the first time in Nepal: it is a civil rights issue. Madhesi Rights: Total Equality.

United We Blog as always has great on the ground coverage and commentary: Leaders Vow to Preserve People’s Power, Roadmap of New Nepal, King Renounces, All Eyes on SPA, People’s Power.
