This afternoon.

Some members of Ireland’s Tibetan community hold a vigil to mark the 58th anniversary of the Tibetan National Uprising of 1959 and the 9th anniversary of the Uprisings of 2008, when thousands of Tibetans rose up against China’s occupation of Tibet.

Tibetans and supporters mark March 10 each year to show solidarity with Tibetans inside Tibet and to honour and support the resistance to Chinese rule that continues to this day.
