Dr. Shyam Sir,
I became very glad to reading your press note. That is what every Nepalese
organization should express solidarity to the historic and populer movement
of Nepal to restoration of complete ( Loktantra). I think there will be very
effective if we could organize a protest demostration in every part of the
USA against the autocratic regime in Nepal.

Appeal to Boycott Nepal King’s Embassies and Missions Aboard

Dear Friends and Friends of Nepal,

As you are all aware of, thousands of peaceful demonstrators have been victims of brutality perpetrated by the royal government of Nepal. At least eight demonstrators have been killed by security forces and hundreds of people are sustaining bullet injuries and many have been baton-charged and injured. Yet, more and more Nepalese people are taking to the streets, risking their lives and committed to continue the demonstration until the king’s brutal regime ends and the full-fledged democracy is established.

It is regrettable to see that when people are trying to make their protests as peaceful as they can, the authoritarian government of Nepal led by King Gynanedra is all set to suppress the popular uprising at any cost. There is evidence that security forces of Nepal have been ordered to infiltrate protest groups to make the demonstrations violent by deliberately provoking the protesters. At the same time, there is also evidence that the authoritarian, undemocratic and hand-picked government of Nepal has provided a huge funding and directed its overseas embassies and missions to sabotage the international support for Nepal’s ongoing movement for democracy by supplying wrong information to the international community. For example, we have credible information that some missions have briefed the foreign governments that security forces of Nepal have been forced to use excessive force because of so called Maoist infiltrations in the demonstrations. We strongly believe that the Nepalese embassies and missions, which are currently directed by the government led by King Gynendra that doesn’t represent majority of the Nepalese people, are working to consolidate the king’s brutal regime and weaken the ongoing pro-democratic movement of Nepal.
Thus, the Democratic Youth Council in USA (NDYCUSA), in solidarity to the ongoing movement in Nepal, would like to appeal to all the organizations of the Nepali Diaspora and the members of Nepali Community in the US and other countries to boycott the programs organized by Nepali embassies and missions and events, where the representatives from the embassies, missions or the Nepal government, have been invited. We urge all of you to boycott these program and events until a full-fledged democracy is established in Nepal. We hope that your boycott would contribute significantly to the end of king’s tyranny and brutality in Nepal.

Sincerely yours,
Anand Bist
Nepalese Democratic Youth Council in USA
