Nepal: Down with the king! - Weekly riot report

King Gyanendra vowed Friday to bring multiparty democracy back to the Himalayan nation, 14-months after he seized control and set off a bloody political crisis that engulfed the country and left the government deeply unstable.

Anyone looking for some revolutionary erotica to go with their riot porn might want to check out the Red Flags website (burningman/Jed Brandt).

It's got many interviews with the communists, documents, a few articles and sometimes real discussion.
