March 10th March For Freedom


Why are Tibetans and their supporters demonstrating today, March 10th?

March 10th is the anniversary of the Tibetan National Uprising against the Chinese occupation on March 10, 1959. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Tibetan people’s resistance to the brutal Chinese occupation of our homeland.

Why do Tibetan oppose Chinese rule?

Because over one million people in Tibet have died since the occupation

Because Tibetans cannot freely practice their religion or express their political beliefs

Because the very existence of Tibetan culture and identity are at risk

Because Tibet’s fragile environment is being destroyed

Despite this tragedy, the Tibetan people continue to struggle for freedom nonviolently. What can you do to help the Tibetan people?
