Maoist effigies



It is now the turn of the effigies of Maoist chiefs Prachanda and Baburam Bhattarai to burn on the streets of Kathmandu. The Nepal Maoist Victim Association have organised the bonfire for 13 February after they received threats from the rebels to dissolve their organisation. "We got a letter from Prabhakar of the Maoist Kathmandu Valley coordination committee last month," says chairman Ganesh Chiluwal. "He asked us to stop campaigning against the Maoists and to dissolve our association." The association chose 13 February because it marks the eighth anniversary of the Maoists' \'People's War'. The rebels have accused the association of spying on the Maoists and being funded by the US Embassy in Kathmandu. Chiluwal said that his organisation is not afraid of the rebels' threat.
