Activists seen inside a police vehicle after being detained are taken away during a general strike called on by landless squatters in Kathmandu January 17, 2012. The landless squatters called on a general strike to protest against the government’s decision to remove their settlements from the banks of the Bagmati River. Narayan Parisharmi, Vice Chairman of the landless squatters’ struggle committee, said that the squatters will continue their protest until the government provides them with an alternative settlement. An estimated 12,000 landless squatters live in Kathmandu with the majority living on the banks of Bagmati River, according to media reports.
