On the 64th anniversary of the Tibetan National Uprising, a commemorative event was held in Rome to honor the memory of those who lost their lives in the struggle for Tibetan freedom. The event was attended by members of the Tibetan community in Italy, as well as supporters and human rights activists.
The gathering started with a minute of silence in memory of the martyrs of the Tibetan struggle, followed by speeches and cultural performances. The speakers highlighted the continuing oppression of the Tibetan people by the Chinese government and called for international support for their cause.
The Tibetan National Uprising took place on March 10, 1959, when the people of Tibet rose up against the Chinese Communist Party’s occupation of their country. The uprising was brutally suppressed by the Chinese authorities, leading to the death of thousands of Tibetans and the exile of the Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of Tibet, and many other Tibetans.
The commemorative event in Rome aimed to raise awareness of the ongoing struggle of the Tibetan people and to call for international action to support their cause. It also served as a reminder of the sacrifices made by those who fought for Tibetan freedom and independence.
