In keeping with the importance of supporting the people's revolution in Nepal, we have been following the rapidly changing developments after the attempted sacking of General Katawal, Chief of Staff of the reactionary Nepalese Army, by the Maoist-led government.  We have also been looking more closely at the statements by party leaders following the National Conference of the Unified CPN (Maoist) held in November 2008.  Finally we have developed our views on the particular circumstances posed by the revolution in Nepal.

Revolution and State Power in Nepal

The central question in Nepal today is state power and the means by which it can be conquered and wielded in the service of the overwhelming majority of the people of Nepal.  Does the present unstable Maoist-led coalition government represent the beginnings of a process leading to socialism, and a beacon and valuable resource for the worldwide struggle against capitalism and imperialism?  Or is a disorienting political strategy being implemented that is unprepared for the next challenge and is blocking further advance of the revolutionary process?  (April 2009, 6 pp.)
