The ENOUGH IS ENOUGH MOMENT. I was all hyped up about it. Youth revolting for a cause. We all were frustrated and still are frustrated with our government. I was hoping this would give me hope that Nepali youth are not passive as I thought they were.
I know this was during covid times and It was not morally right to demonstrate in large numbers during that peak covid time. But my problem with this demonstration was few influenza people trying to control what to speak and what not to speak in the demonstration.
This guy in the “organizing team” who is a roadies winner I guess. Told me on a fb comment that this demonstration should be only about covid and government negligence to this issue. I said what about corruption, bad system of governance, unemployment, criminals and rapist running free. The guy was this demonstration is only about covid and we would everyone to keep it that way. He said there would be time for other issues. Fuck you bro, should’ve hit the iron when its hot.
I personally think that this demonstration could have been big. Could have threatened government to work for the people but these few influenza taking control completely lost my hope. We could have all demonstrated for our causes and let our voice heard. Last ma ‘iih’ representation vaira whole aandolan ko.
Any contrasting opinion would be welcomed. r/antiwork are talking about organizing strike in international labor’s day. That got me all hyped up.
