"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

[Media Source*] (Hat Tip: Radio Free Nepal)
It seems that no body is paying attention to the Nepal plight these days (especially amongst the bigger bloggers) which is quite sad when you hear about how these people are struggling to get their democracy back.
Nepal's major political parties are gearing up for massive anti-King protests and a "fill the prisons movement" on March 14 to intensify the pressure on the Royal government, rejecting a ban on such gatherings.
Leaders of top political parties today called the party workers, intellectuals, professionals and the general public to prepare for widespread peaceful rallies throughout the country.
I think it is time we start supporting them. You can visit some bloggers from Nepal and let them know that we support them.
Here is a little bit about their background:
King Gyandendra of Nepal has issued a ban on independent news broadcasts and has threatened to punish newspapers for reports that run counter to the official monarchist line. Given that any person in Nepal publishing reports critical of "the spirit of the royal proclamation" is subject to punishment and/or imprisonment, contributors to this blog will publish their reports from Nepal anonymously.
Please help tell the world about what has happened in Nepal. Do not forget us. We want our democracy back! If you have questions or would like to help spread the word e-mail us. For media please send questions via e-mail and we will do our best to get good answers for you.
We won't forget.
