Tibetan Uprising Day 2020: Join the resistance
This year marks 61 years of Tibetan resistance against China’s illegal occupation of Tibet. On 10 March 1959, tens of thousands of Tibetans took to the streets of Tibet’s capital Lhasa to protect their leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama and their nation from the occupying Chinese forces.
Six decades on, the Tibetan spirit remains strong. Join the resistance and show your solidarity to the people of Tibet.
We are joining the rallies on Tuesday 10 March organised by the local Tibetan communities across Australia. (See below for a different date in Hobart)
If you don’t live in the cities below, you can still show your solidarity by wearing a Free Tibet t-shirt on the day.
