69 – Wednesday 10 March 2010 : Free Tibet

In aspirations on March 10, 2010 by Gabor Tagged:

Today is Tibetan Uprising Day.  This commemorates the 1959 Tibetan uprising against the Chinese occupation of Tibet. The failure of the armed rebellion ultimately resulted in a violent crackdown on Tibetan independence movements, and the flight of the Dalai Lama into exile.

Unfortunately the Chinese oppression continues, as we saw with crackdowns against dissent ahead of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
