Has anyone noticed the flags the pro democracy protesters have been flying in Kathmandu. There red flags with hammer and sickles on them which the western press has tried to avoid mentioning!
Lets hope the comrades there have a sucessful revoloution and dispose of there tyrant king!

I was watching finnish news and they did show protestors with red flags walking on streets, not hammer and sickle on them though.

The hammer and sickle flag is the flag of the so-called Communist Party of Nepal (United Marxist Leninist). Ironically, due to the peculiarities of Nepalese politics, they are not really a communist party (kind of like the Czech Communist Party). All parties in Nepal pay lip service to socialism. Its jus the way it is. The revolutionary forces are behind the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist).
