Some notes on ‘Disqualified Militants’

(Nepalese Medias, especially the print Medias have not publicized this issue prominently. They have given less priority to this issue. Even the Medias close to various factions within UCPN( Maoist), have not shown their deep concern on this issue. Rather than Websites from outside the country have given more importance on this issue.  We have  Photos and Video by ‘Winter has its End.’ Other Websites  also have posted the news and views regarding to this issue:)

Disqualified PLA Members Fight Back

Tonight, torch-carrying former members of the People’s Liberation Army held a highly disciplined and militant demonstration in Kathmandu.They are challenging the government has no future for them other than basket weaving programs, and arguing against one view in the UCPN(M) that would ultimately mean the dissolution of the PLA.

When the Maoists entered the ceasefire of 2006, the United Nations was charged with the task of disqualifying any fighter who joined the PLA when they were under the age of 18 or was deemed unfit for any other reason. About 2000 of the nearly 30,000 PLA fighters were disqualified. Many have spoken out that they will continue to be fighters for Maoist revolution.

Former People’s Liberation Army Refuses to be Silenced

Former soldiers of the Maoist Peoples Liberation Army (PLA), many of whom are now now organized as the Young Communist League (YCL), a mass fighting organization, stepped out politically against schemes to disperse and degrade them. On August 8, they held a disciplined and militant manifestation in the streets of Nepal’s capital Kathmandu — putting themselves and their demands squarely into the crisis gripping Nepal. Will the PLA be dispersed and disarmed? Or will they prepare for a new wave of revolution? In many ways, the futures of their country and the surrounding South Asian region hang on those questions

Nepal: Disqualified PLA–Still Fighting for Revolution

August 10,2011

 Over 4,000 fighters were removed (by the UN ‘peacekeeping’ forces) from the People’s Liberation Army, during the 6 years since the UCPN(M) shelved the people’s war in favor of the peace process which removed the monarchy but has been otherwise fruitless in revolutionary terms.  Now, the “disqualified” fighters are emerging as a political force, declaring for a reinvigoration of Maoist revolution in Nepal.  This video, by Winter Has Its End reporters, is a welcome insight to this development in Nepal.

Soldiers of the Peoples Liberation Army (PLA), now officially organized as the Young Communist League, stepped out politically against schemes to disperse and degrade the encamped Maoist guerrilla army.

On August 8, they held a disciplined and militant manifestation in the streets of Nepal’s capital Kathmandu — putting themselves and their demands squarely into the crisis gripping Nepal. Will the PLA be dispersed and disarmed? Or will they prepare for a new wave of revolution? In many ways, the futures of their country and the surrounding South Asian region hang on those questions.

This is a product of the Winter Has Its End journalism team that is now starting to produce video reporting of events. The team writes in its introduction to this video:

“What will the Peoples Liberation Army soldiers do? Where do their loyalties now lie politically? What is the New Nepal they dream of? This demonstration gives a hint of their continued militancy, cohesion, and revolutionary determination.”
