The Young Communist League is the militia for the Maoist. They are reprehensible. Every day they commit more atrocities. Just this week they have:
- beaten families (including 4 elderly men) for worshipping during the holiest Hindu holidays. They think that nobody should worship any longer.
- They have kidnapped men and held them for ransom
- They are suspected of kidnapping and killing a well known journalist (part of an intimidatioin program against the press)
- They have begun forcing tourist to pay "fees" while trekking
- They have taken the land of people who have been recently displaced and are harvesting the rice the people planted...presumably they will profit by it.
