The Facebook Movement

”The best part is that the event was started from a small group in Facebook and was able to collect 2000 people ultimately” says Abhash Thapa who was one of the 2000 outside the Constituent Assembly at BICC in Kathmandu today (14/05/11). Sahana Bajracharya (pictured above) described it as ”The Facebook Movement” whilst rocker Abhaya Subba took to Facebook to share this ”LOCK THE TREASURY! No work,no pay. BINA KAAM, CHHAINA DAAM. No more waiting…start working on the draft asap.”
If your ignorant political awareness on the ongoing of Nepal is limited then all this recent spate of protest’s are due to the Government extending the constitution deadline by another year. The people have been left hanging enough, given empty promises, hope’s that have just come crashing down – give them a constitution. The original deadline set in 2008 was for May 28th 2010 but now the current Govnt has decided to extend it by another year, May 20th 2012.

    If we pressure our “leaders” like this then eventually we will get some good results. I suppose.

  3. i am really proud to say that i was a part of this movement and i was there shouting for my country. I like to thank all those who started this campaign, and to all the youths who made today successful.
