The French Revolution And DFNYC
If this were 1789, and a revolution were going on in France, and DFNYC/DFA existed, would the organization sit around idly, unawares?
Well, there is a major movement going on in Nepal, but DFNYC does not notice. It is not exactly like the movement in Nepal depends on DFNYC for anything. But for someone like me who has been working full time for the movement in Nepal ever since I moved to the city seven months back, when I show up for a DFNYC event, it feels like such a disconnect. People are sipping beer, making small talk while Rome is burning.
I have kept offering Nepal as key to the strong on defense message for Democrats. So far I have not made much headway. But I am confident my message has oomph.
But for those who just want to sit back and relax, I have another option. I work closely with two young bloggers in Kathmandu who are the Nepali diaspora's window into the street demonstrations in Kathmandu. So click and watch. This is the real thing.
