Zone de Texte: The Maoist Revolution documentary

  Wedged between China and India, Nepal's war is bloody. 

  The UK and the US are directly involved. In January 2004, Jack Straw authorized the donation of 2 fighter jets to the Royal Nepalese Army, despite reports by Amnesty International of gross human rights abuses by the RNA, including disappearances, torture and false imprisonments.  
The US has supplied $20,000, 5000 M16’s, sent US special forces to reconnoitre the entire country and set up a US training camp for the RNA outside Kathmandu, Nepal’s capital.   In the last six months, 3000 people have died in the conflict between the Maoists and RNA.  
That makes more deaths per day in Nepal than in Iraq.
The Maoists claim they control 80% of Nepal’s terrain. They collect 5% taxes from a large part of the country and have established administrative outposts, with Maoist political representatives.  Their supporters come from Nepal’s poorest areas. As one of the poorest countries in the world (UN) with one of the highest income inequalities, Nepal’s poor are hungry for a solution. But increasing bloody tactics by Maoist militia are discrediting the movement.
