    Address: 209 Jameson Ave, Toronto, ON M6K 2Y3, Canada

    Date: 10 March 2019

    Time: 08:30-15:30 EDT

    Information: This year will mark the 60th anniversary of the Tibetan National Uprising day that took place on March 10th in 1959. 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. This year also marks 10 years since the mass uprisings across Tibet took place as a response to the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Despite the odds, Tibetans have actively and fiercely rejected and resisted Chinese rule for 59 years.

    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 His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Tibet.

    Please join us for this year’s commemoration of the Tibetan National Uprising Day.

    Please RSVP and SAVE THE DATE. We will post details shortly.

    This event 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.
