Whispering Against Autocracy?
Two ladies talk to each other this afternoon while participating in a mass meeting organized to protest the autocracy of king Gyanendra in Basantapur, Kathmandu. Before this, several hundred people indigenous Nepalis affiliated with various organizations took out a rally chanting anti-king slogans. They were supporting the April 6-9 general strike and demonstrations planned against the autocracy by the Seven Party Alliance. The government has vowed to make the general strike a flop show.
