Nepalese march in support of the monarchy

Hundreds of supporters of the former royal family took to the streets of Kathmandu on Friday to protest the abolition of the monarchy. One year ago Nepal’s Maoist government legislated to abolish the world’s last Hindu monarchy. This turned the country into a secular republic. The protesters are angry that the people did not get a say in the decision and are demanding a formal referendum on the subject. They carried a huge petition which they claimed was signed by more than two million people.
