Press Release :11/27/15

Nepalese in New England Protesting Against Border Blockade in Nepal

Nepalese living in the New England area are organizing a peaceful protest against the blockade of critical supplies into Nepal due to political stalemate between India and Nepal which is causing mass suffering and violation of United Nations charter for landlocked countries. The protest will take place at Copley Square, Boston on Sunday, November 29th, 2015 at 2:00 PM. Immediately following the promulgation of the constitution, which was voted by 85% of constituent assembly and praised by several countries including the United States, India imposed an undeclared blockade that has crippled the lives of millions in the Himalayan nation. India’s blockade is meant to support a very small percentage of Terai population who are regional elites and landlords with deep family ties in India. We stand with the majority of fellow Nepalis and Madheshis whose lives have been harshly affected due to the selfish actions of few leaders.

Nepal, which is just recovering from a 7.8 Richter scale earthquake, is unable to cope with the blockade, which has been in place for the last two months and is ongoing. The blockade has caused a severe shortage of food, fuel, medicines and cooking gas, triggering hospital closures as well as massive deforestation as individuals turn to wood fires to meet their needs. Post-earthquake reconstruction has also been halted due to the blockade. As the landlocked country of Nepal conducts more than 75% of its trade through its open border with India, the blockade has caused more damage to the economy than the devastating earthquakes. The shortages in addition to the winter season, which has already started in mountains, is going to cause one of the worst humanitarian crisis in the region.

Nepalese of all walks of life in Boston and other New England cities are expected to participate in the peaceful protest at Copley Square.  An estimated 300 thousand Nepalese live in the United States, and around 25 thousand Nepalese live in the New England area.

We appeal the International community to come forward and voice against the inhumane blockade and urge the politicians to end the crisis and strengthen bilateral coexistence.

Organized by Nepalese Residents of New England

I agree with pressuring the Government, they have to do the majority of things and they aren't doing it.

But I will ask this question to Donald_duck and everybody else who is saying Govt has to do it, What would you do if you were the Government? Would you be willing to give them everything they have demanded? If not what provision would you take out and what if they protested that as well?

If they had only gone to Terai and address in the name of Madhesh people long time ago, the situation wouldn't have gone worse.

Do you know what Govt's responsibility is? If they can't solve the problem, they should step down. They just can't stand with argument keeping peoples life in measurable condition, as you are seeing everyday.

Can you recall how many times these so called self-proclaimed netas have visited Madesh? Has Prime Minister recently visited Terai? It is so frustrating.

Not sure why you are asking a question to my question. If you are reading anything between the lines, please don't. I am asking just to understand where people are coming from and what they would do if put in a real situation. It's easy to tell somebody to solve the issue, but do we know if a solution exist? That's all I want to know.

Problem was created by your leaders (Prachande and company et al). Nobody was asking state let alone ethnic based states in Nepal. Your leaders created this problem for no reason so ask him the solution.

Your leaders?? Yeah i agree prachande created the problem. Baburam is still at it but they are no one's leaders. Instead of pointing fingers at each other india gave us a motivation to unite. Lets do that fiirst, if we unite and have greater understanding, it will not take too long to fix our ineternal problems.

Kiddo, the issue is simple. What the government needs to do first is to uphold the law. It is illegal for any group to block any public roads so the first thing government needs to do is have the balls to clear up the protestors. If they don't have the balls to do that, then they need to give up their position and let someone else come to the government who can clear the protestors and possibly try to deal with the underlying issues.

@ne0 and @mangale, how exactly is our government supposed to stop this blockade? How many people are you proposing our government kill to clear the blockade? I don't think violence is a solution here. This is why I think we need to protest against the root of this crisis, the Indian government.

Off course there is clear blockage, isn't it clear like daylight. There is not any protest except Birjung naka, No protest is kakatbhitta, Nepalgung et al. and still Indian keep stopping fuel trucks (and let come others - vegetable and else)
India has never good motive towards Nepal.
One of dotis Lawmakers already started claiming 15 districts of Nepal and should be returned otherwise annexed using force!
F*** U!
Instead our lawmakers cannot claim our genuine eastern land extending to Bangladesh.

There is no doubt the blockade is done by INDIAN GOVERNMENT. Have you read interviews of several leaders from Congress, UML, RPP-NEPAL, and maoists? They have not openly said it is done by indian government. Gagan Thapa, rising star (LOL), gave the interview saying it's not India.

I support this protest. Is there any way we can also pressure our government to be serious? PM is busy buying ipad and organizing parties, and transferring the officials for CASH.

I agree partially with Donald Duck; our government showed apathy towards madheshis including several commentators here. I've written on other threads also, EX-PM Koirala and Bam Dev are one of the reasons we've blockade; failure of their tenure lead to present crisis.

Why haven't top government officials gone to any of the areas of protests? Are these not located inside Nepal?
Why were government imposing curfews for days and days at these regions (before India's blockade)? Nepali media and people cared the least for the plight of these people then.

It is EASIER to blame India, than also seeing the fault of us. I'm not saying India is not evil. There is no doubt it wants to engulf Nepal. But what can we do when our government goes on celebrating the blockade? If amassing wealth from people's plight with the commission of black marketing of fuel is not celebration, what it is? Why has GM of NOC not been sacked yet when he was caught stealing fuel? Nepal police has been accused of being culprit in black marketing.

When we've so much weaknesses and become BLIND to faults of our people and keep on accusing India, things are not going to be solved that way either.

Kiddo, can you tell what you will do? Does leaders care what we say?
If I were in the government, I'd have first gone to talk with madhesh and talk with people. I agree that top leaders of madhesh are working for Indian government and are ready to sell Nepal for the post of Chief Minister, but so is Baburam Bhattarai, and probably Oli, Koirala, or Prachanda. Why has not government initiated to show its presence in madhesh except the brutality of police force? There're people like CK LAL, Tula Narayan Shah, and Dipendra Jha, who I believe are not very biased. We don't want to listen to talk to them either. But Oli or Koirala is busy enjoying the prime ministerial position. If Nepal government was ready to air lift the fuel and did so, why hasn't government been serious to air lift the medicines?

Who is stopping to have agreement with China?
- Makune has openly accused nepali government officials without officially naming them. Roads to Indian borders were not repaired. Children of present chief of road department is said to be on the indian embassy's scholarship.
- Ex-Finance Minister Mahat was accused of not providing sufficient funds for the repairs.
- Current GM of NOC had created artificial scarcity of cooking gas few months ago and is said to earn millions of rupees from it. He is expert in cashing from the scarcity. When he is caught with evidence for corruption, why has government not done anything? Because they also get the commission.

Noone ever blames Krishna Prasad Situala for the current crisis. He almost became the President of Nepal. He was accused openly on "gorkapatra" by the people from his own party for selling millions of citizenships to Indian nationals.

We don't want to talk anything about the rotten ones on our side and pressuring the government to remove them?

At last, protesting on foreign land against India is one of the thing we could do to gain international coverage of indian hedgemony. It should have been done earlier, not late yet.

गिरिजा मुजी पातकी ले दिएको नागरिकता को आधार मा नागरिक भएका अन्ग्रिकृत नेपाली लाइ कुन आधार मा सेना राष्ट्र प्रमुख हुन दिने ??
येस्ता मुजी माग राख्ने लाइ सरकार ले के गरोस ?? नेपाल को सरकार मा त भारत को मान्छे हुने देस मा ( कोइरालो , कांग्रेश ) नेपाली सरकारी काम काज मा कति होलान , चीन संग सम्झौता गर्न लाइ आफ्नै मातहात को कर्मचारी ले असहयोग गरेको पढ्या छैनौ तिमि हरु ले ?? अनि मुजी सरकार भगवान त हैन नि , के गरोस !
सरकार को समर्थन गर्यो भनेर मलाई पार्टी को मान्छे भन्लान तर म न एमाले हु न कांग्रेस न माओबादि , म देस बाट आफ्नै परिस्थिति ले निस्केको एउटा नेपाली मात्र हु ! तिमि हरु जस्तै !
देस तुर्काउदै हिद्चु भन्ने हरु दिन दहाडै सभा गर्दै , सम्मेलन गर्दै हिड्या छन् , गएर एउटा ले खप्पर फुटाउनु अनि आधा समस्या को समाधान तेइ निस्कन्छ , तर हैन हामि मुजी बिर गोर्खाली का सन्तान रे इतिहास ले भनेको तर आइले हामि मुजी डरपोक नेपाली , घुस्या नेपाली , भ्रस्ट नेपाली !
तर त्यो भन्दैमा कुनै बिदेसी लाइ हाम्रो देस मा आखा गाड्ने कुनै हक छैन , हो हाम्रो आफ्नो आफ्नै बध्याता छ , नेपाल गएर देस को लागि लड्न सकिदैन , तर त्यो भन्दैमा मुजी हामि चुपो लागेर बस्ने हैन | आफु ले जे सक्छु तेइ गर्ने हो , म काम को यता उति ले गर्दा गएर बिरोध सभा मा जान सक्दिन , तर अनलाइन सके जति बिरोध गर्छु ! अस्ति भर्खर एउटा धोति संग संग येइ कुरा मा बिबाद हुदा एउटा अनलाइन फोरम बाट तेल्लाई भगाएर छोडे , सुन्दा हास उठ्ला तर मेरो लागि त्यो मेरो देस प्रति एउटा सानो धेरै सानो भए पनि एउटा समर्थन थियो !
न्यु इंगलैंड बासि को यो सभा लगाएत अरु सबै सभा मा मेरो चै पूर्ण समर्थन छ !

@facebook, I read what you said like wise @metta, I am more towards Metta, Madesh has more supporters of congress, UML.. than Madeshi party who are on the street with bulshit demands, why major parties' presence is null in Madesh, why they are not going over there and tell public, do rallies, if you really count there are only few active followers of those madeshi party with high pay rate. due to above mentioned reasons, I blame all Nepalese major parties than India, no doubt India is evil because of our leaders

@thukka , you right . Nepalese political parties are main players to be blame too.
They have very strong root in Nepalese rural places and Madhes too.
उ बेला मा भारत को चाकरी गरेर सत्ता मा पुगे , भारत ले जे भन्यो तेइ भयो , आइले लास्टा आएर भारत ले चाहे जस्तो सम्भिधान आएन अनि भारत किन न रिसावोस !
Lets not forget this new Madhesi who are fighting now were almost washed out in last election. UML and Congress Samsad are enjoying in kathmandu instead of going to madhes and talk to their people.
जति सुकै प्रगति भो भनेर खोके पनि नेपाल बिग्रेको २०४७ साल पछि बहुदल आएर नै हो !
