This is accompanied by peaceful protests and vigils to demand an end to China’s occupation and human rights violations in Tibet.

    The human rights in Tibet have dramatically worsened over the last years, especially regarding civil and political rights. Therefore, Tibetans and Tibet supporters will gather all over Germany to show their solidarity with Tibet and to support the Tibetan people’s right to self-determination and demand the protection of human rights.

    Special emphasis will be on the demolitions at Larung Gar, one of the largest institutes of Buddhist learning, in Serthar in Eastern Tibet.

  • United States | San Fransisco Tibetan National Uprising Day

    Address: Berkeley to San Fransisco Chinese Consulate

    Date: 10 March 2017

    Time: Gather from 8am (full programme below)

    Information: On March 10, 2017 hundreds of Tibetans and Tibet supporters in the San Francisco Bay Area will join thousands of people around the world in the annual global commemoration of the 58th anniversary of the Tibetan National Uprising.

    WHEN/WHERE:
    8:30 AM Berkeley City Hall 2180 Milvia St., Berkeley

    2:15 PM March to Justin Herman Plaza
    5:00 PM Justin Herman Plaza Market St @ Embarcadero,
    San Francisco

    WHY? It is 58 years since hundreds of thousands of Tibetans rose up and demanded an end to China’s illegal invasion and occupation of their country. China’s use of extreme force to quell these protests compelled His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama to escape to India, where he has lived in exile ever since. Today, China is stepping up its efforts to punish Tibetans in Tibet for expressing loyalty to His Holiness the Dalai Lama – a devotion that has not wavered despite the half century that has passed.

    The human rights situation in Tibet has declined dramatically in recent years with the fundamental rights to freedom of expression, peaceful assembly, religion, and privacy highly restricted. Since the Chinese occupation in 1959, more than one million Tibetans have been killed. To fly a Tibetan flag, send an email abroad, or say the phrase “human rights,” is cause for imprisonment and torture. 99% of all Tibetan monasteries have been closed. Media is greatly restricted and near 150 Tibetans burned themselves alive since 2009 to protest conditions in Tibet under Chinese government rule.

    This March 10, tens of thousands of Tibetans and Tibet supporters will be taking to the streets across the globe.

    BACKGROUND: San Francisco Team Tibet consists of Tibetan Association of Northern California (tanc.org), Bay Area Friends of Tibet (friends-of-tibet.org), San Francisco Regional Youth Congress (sfrtyc.org), Students for a Free Tibet – West (https://www.facebook.com/SFTWest/)

    Address: From Cadman Plaza Park, Brooklyn to UN Plaza

    Information: Tibetan Uprising Day, observed on March 10, commemorates the 1959 Tibetan uprising against the presence of the People’s Republic of China in Tibet.

Under the leadership of The Tibetan Community of New York & New Jersey, the event will be jointly organized by seven organizations i.e., Utsang Association of New York & New Jersey, Domey Association of New York & New Jersey, Regional Tibetan Youth Congress of New York & New Jersey, Regional Tibetan Women Association of New York & New Jersey, Dokham Chushi Gangdruk, Students for a Free Tibet and US Tibet Committee.
