[Toronto] Tibetan National Uprising Day
March 10, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pm
58 years have passed since March 10, 1959 when Tibetans in Lhasa revolted against Chinese rule. The People’s Liberation Army responded with force, triggering His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s flight into exile a week later.
Today Tibetans in Tibet, and those in exile around the world, continue the struggle for Tibetan identity, freedom, human rights and for the return of the Dalai Lama to Tibet.
Please join us for this year’s commemoration of Tibetan National Uprising Day.
We will update the itinerary and routes shortly.
This march is organized by: Canadian Tibetan Association of Ontario, Chushi Gangdruk Society of Canada, Tibetan Women’s Association of Ontario, Regional Tibetan Youth Congress and Students for a Free Tibet Canada.
