Nepal’s crisis: No way out under capitalism

26/11/2003, SINCE THE collapse of negotiations in late August, over 1,000 have died in clashes between Nepal’s military and Maoist rebels.

As HUGH CAFFREY explains, under capitalism, this beautiful part of the planet is a social nightmare for workers and the peasantry.
