Tibetan National Uprising Anniversary
On 10 March 2016, from 10 am
On March 10 1959, thousands of Tibetans took to the streets of Lhasa to protest against Chinese occupation of Tibet. As protests intensified, the Chinese troops responded with brutal force, killing thousands of Tibetans. This led to a full scale Tibetan uprising across Lhasa and other parts of Tibet. Tibetan martyrs who took part in the Tibetan National Uprising protests need to be respected for their courage, and should be forever remembered in our history.
For the past 50 years, the Chinese government has done everything in its power to divide Tibetans and confuse the international community about the Tibetan issue. Tibetans from all walks of life have made great sacrifices, even giving up their precious life, to restore Tibet’s freedom.
For the last 57 years we have commemorated Tibetan National Uprising Day with protest rallies all over the world. This year, we urge you to join us on the streets at a March 10 rally wherever you are.
This event is jointly made by five major NGO in Dharamsala.
