Nepal: Maoist grassroots hold torch marches against liquidation of the People's Army

The headquarters of the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) have decided to dissolve the People's Liberation Army, which was in cantonments since the peace agreements two years ago, that allowed the Maoists to run for elections and eventually take over the government in coalition (but not whole power, which is still largely in the Army, an essentially counter-revolutionary force).

This has led to protests as a ample sectors of the militancy oppose this liquidation, which they consider premature and suicidal for the revolutionary movement.

There's also an article by Peter Tobin discussing the matter.
