[Tokyo] Tibetan National Uprising Day
March 10, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
As we all know, 10th March is an important and memorable day in Tibetan History. This is the day Thousands of Tibetans stood up in nonviolent protest against the illegal invasion of Tibet in 1959 by People’s Republic of China. The violent crackdown on Tibetans in Lhasa on that day resulted in deaths of thousands of Tibetans and triggered the flight of the Tibetan leader, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, into exile.
Till this day, Tibet is still under heavy surveillance and has no basic human rights for Tibetans inside Tibet. So here we, SFT Japan, call upon all Tibetans and friends of Tibet to please come out on 12th March (Sunday) to march and be the voices of those who can’t raise their voices inside Tibet and China.
11:00 AM UTC: Protest at the Chinese Embassy
1:00 PM UTC: Gather at Nyishi Shinjuku Kashiwagi kouen
