The All Nepal National Free Students Union (Nepali: अखिल नेपाल राष्ट्रिय स्वतन्त्र विद्यार्थी युनियन, abbreviation अनेरास्ववियु) is the political based student organization in Nepal. The ANNFSU was founded in 1965. The original ANNFSU was later divided along ideological lines, and there are several organisations that emerged from it. The main ANNFSU grouping today is politically tied to the Communist Party of Nepal (Unified Marxist-Leninist). But the abbreviation can be used to denote as a whole communist students organization in Nepal. The letter or word at the end defines particular communist group.For example: ANNFSU-R for Maoists, ANNFSU(Fifth) for Maxist-Leninist. As well as declaring itself a legitimate and independent students' organisation of all progressive, democratic and patriotic students of Nepal, the mainstream ANNFSU is currently a member of the World Federation of Democratic Youth.


The organisation was founded in 1965, and was associated with the pro-China trend of the Nepalese communist movement. ANNFSU did however remain as a united organisation, in spite of various splits amongst the radical communists. The ANNFSU gained prominence as an activist movement in a period when large sections of the established communist movement remained in jail.

In 1979 ANNFSU was split. One section would be known as ANNFSU (Fifth) (which was tied to the Communist Party of Nepal (Marxist-Leninist)) and the other grouping became known as ANNFSU (Sixth) (which was connected to the Communist Party of Nepal (Fourth Convention)). The former group is the current mainstream ANNFSU connected to CPN(UML). A section of ANNFSU, which was in favour to support of Multi Party Democracy instead of Panchayat autocracy regime in Nepal, it stablished Nepal Progressive Student Union and went in to the peoples to convience them to cast their vote in favour of Multi Party Democracy in refrendum.

In 1992 a section the students wing of the Communist Party of Nepal (Marxist), the Nepal Progressive students Union, merged with ANNFSU. Kishor Bikram Malla is the current president of the organization. The vice presidents are Thomas Bastola, Deepak Gautam, Ain Mahar. Nabina Lama is the general secretary and Rashmi Acharya is the treasurer.

In 2013, the Nepal Progressive Student Union has become the student wing of Communist Party of Nepal in the name of All Nepal Student Union. Praween Mishra is its Coordinator and Deep Nararayan Pathak is the co-cordinator of ANSU. [1]
