Kathmandu, August 11

The Federation of Community Forestry Users Nepal staged a protest today at Maitighar in Kathmandu. The protestors demanded the cancellation of the recently passed Forest Regulations, 2022.

The Federation says that the authority of the Community Forest Consumer Committee has encroached on its rights over the district forest.

The protest rally started from Maitighar and reached New Baneshwor. After reaching Baneshwor, it turned into a corner meeting.

In the demonstration, slogans such as cancel the new regulations imposed on community forests’, ‘cancel the anti-federal forest regulations’, and ‘cancel the anti-women forest regulations 2022’, were chanted.
