Shameless Promotion

For those who happen to live in the Toronto (Ontario, Canada) region, the following event is happening tomorrow and, since I spent hours designing the poster/image, I feel the need to advertise it here.  Those of you who do not live in Toronto/Canada can just enjoy (or not enjoy) the image.

When: March 2nd, 2011
Time: 7-9 pm
Where: OISE (252 Bloor Street West), Room 5280
In 1996 the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) began its people’s war against the existing tyrannical monarchist regime with the support of the majority of people in Nepal. In 2005 as part of a seven-point agreement with other opposition parties the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) helped launch a people’s revolt in Kathmandu which led to the ouster of the monarchy and declared a ceasefire. Subsequently the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) entered the parliamentary process to write a constitution that fulfills the political, economic and social aspirations of the peoples of Nepal. This panel seeks to examine the political developments that have taken place in Nepal in the last 6 years and to discuss the on-going revolution in Nepal.

Wendy Glauser and Dhruv Jain: In May-June 2010, Wendy, a free-lance journalist, and Dhruv, a doctoral student at York University, visited Nepal and spoke to a variety of Party activists, officials and ordinary people to study the political situation and the quality of livelihood of ordinary people in the years since the ceasefire. They were also able to spend three weeks in former Maoist strongholds in the districts of Kalikot and Rolpa.

Noaman Ali: In December 2010 Noaman, a doctoral student at the University of Toronto, reported on the 18th National Conference of the All-Nepal National Independent Students Union (Revolutionary) in Kathmandu, Nepal for the Basics Community Newsletter.

Sponsors: PRAC-Toronto, OPIRG-Toronto, Canada South Asian Solidarity Association, International League of Peoples Struggles Canada.


  1. You can diva it up whenever you want, comrades nomes. The event went well, don't you think? I was surprised by the props sent from Basanta!

  2. Dhruv told me that the Basanta piece would be put online, does anyone know if that has been done yet?

  3. To my knowledge it hasn't been put online... I'll ask.

    I really enjoyed the event - and the poster. I thought it was so interesting!

  5. It's online now...on D.'s website. Also, Josh, you did a phenomenal job designing that poster.
