[Copenhagen] Tibetan National Uprising Day
March 10, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm
On March 10th, 1959, thousands of Tibetans gathered in Lhasa, the capital of independent Tibet, to rise up against China’s illegal and inhumane occupation of Tibet. This uprising was met with a violent crack down by the Chinese government. March 10 is now widely recognized at Tibetan Uprising Day.
This year to commemorate the 58th anniversary of the uprisings, SFT Denmark, together with the Tibetan Community of Denmark, The Danish Society of Tibetan Culture and The Tibet Support Committee will be organizing an event in the nation’s capital, Copenhagen.
