The AFP has reported that some two-thousand protesters marched from New York’s Brooklyn Bridge to the United Nations headquarters on March 10 in commemoration of the Tibetan National Uprising day. This year’s march was fueled by a growing sense of unease in Tibet, where many have sacrificed their lives in self-immolation protests against Chinese rule in the region. Marchers concluded the day’s event with a candlelight vigil.
Protests on March 10 happened in other places around the world, including Taiwan, London, and Australia, to name only a few. Also, a three-man hunger strike for Tibet has been underway for weeks now at the United Nations headquarters. The trio experienced several run-ins with the NYPD early on in the strike but remain determined to continue. Click through here for related video.
