i'm kind of annoyed that i only just learned about this - i'm not sure if i can make it at such late notice - but tomorrow there seems to be a promising event at the South Asian Women’s Community Centre about developments in Nepal:
“The Dreams and Realities of New NEPAL”
A year ago the people of Nepal successfully forced the monarchy to accept their desire for a democratic government. Since 2006, when the king acceded to many of the demands of the Nepali people about democratization, revolutionary groups have entered the Nepali parliament. This is a time of exciting change but also of hot debate about the direction in which the revolution is going.
