Maoist Strategy in Nepal
Interesting post on United We Blog! for a Democratic Nepal here about the current activities of the Maoists in Nepal. Comments mostly call for the disarmament of the Maoists prior to their participation in government or in a constituent assembly.
However, I assume that English blogs from Nepal are dominated by the educated midde class. It's difficult to gauge how much support the Maoists really have and how much is apparent support which is in fact coerced.
I've asked people from UWB to comment either there or here on this. Let's see what they say...
Update: interesting pictures from the 1990 uprising in Nepal here and here. Commentary here.
