Commemorating Sacrifice-Honouring Courage-Advocating Freedom
March 10 2010 is the 51st Commemoration of the1959 Lhasa Uprising, when Tibetans rose up against the brutal oppression of China’s military occupation. The spirit of resistance and hope for freedom and justice today burns as brightly across Tibet, despite decades of colonization and attempted assimilation. In solidarity with the aspiration of Tibet’s national liberation, Tibetans and supporters will gather in cities around the world to honor the courage and sacrifice of Tibetans, and call for an end to the tyranny of China’s illegal occupation.
What are we championing on this day? What do we honor? Which principles do we stand for? What is the objective in demonstration? What message are we seeking to convey? When we stand with Tibetans in Chicago, Brussels, Berlin, New York, Minneapolis and cities around the world, where is our heart? Are we in solidarity with the Tibetans inside Tibet? Do we share their hope for justice, freedom and independence? What do we support today? What do we represent? What do our placards and banners say? There is only one message which is being paid for by the courage and sacrifice of Tibetans in Tibet, that is Independence for Tibet. Will you be carrying that message today?
