Event

Leaders of the Communist Party of Nepal-Maoist (CPN), a banned political party in Nepal, called for a nationwide strike, or bandh, and protests on Tuesday, June 25. CPN leader Netra Bikram Chand, or "Biplav," announced plans for the bandh following the death of a CPN member in an encounter with police forces. Transportation and business disruptions are expected in Nepal, particularly in rural areas, and protests are possible. A heightened security presence is likely; violent clashes, including bombings, cannot be ruled out.

Context

A similar bandh was staged by Biplav and his supporters on May 26, resulting in violence and several deaths.

Advice

Individuals in Nepal are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all public demonstrations, report suspicious behavior or objects to the proper authorities, and anticipate transportation and business disruptions and a heightened security presence.
