The new Prime Minister of Nepal, Pushpa Kamal Dahal,
popularly known as Prachanda, will visit the United States
this week as a part of the annual opening of the new
General Assembly session at the United Nations.

Prachanda was elected Prime Minister just last month
following the installation of the first-ever Constituent
Assembly. He is the chairman of the Communist Party of
Nepal-Maoist and a leader of the People’s Liberation Army.
The People’s Liberation Army fought for more than a decade
to end Nepal’s feudal monarchy and to make fair elections
and a democratic government possible.

The International Action Center IAC is honored to arrange
a special reception for the Prime Minister while he is in
the United States with representatives of social justice
and peace organizations in New York

The International Action Center and Ramsey Clark are
inviting a few individuals and organizations to join us in
this important meeting. We would be honored if you could
join with us in welcoming Prachanda.

The election of a Constituent Assembly in Nepal was a
historic event. With Prachanda’s bold leadership, the
Nepali people made a big step forward in deciding their
own future after long years of tyranny, misrule and
political strife. Through this election and the long years
of armed resistance that preceded it, the people of Nepal
have won a victory in their struggle to be free from 240
years of autocratic monarchical rule and to establish a
democratic society where the rights of all the people
would be protected.

This is a unique opportunity to salute the Nepalese people
for their glorious victory earned after a protracted
battle with many sacrifices and deaths of countless
martyrs. Social justice activists and organizations here
in the U.S. have every reason to support Nepal’s right to
pursue an independent policy in international relations
without any interference or outside pressure from U.S.
imperialism or its regional allies.
