New Delhi, India, Mar 10 (EFE).- Dozens of protesters were arrested Thursday near the Chinese embassy in New Delhi as they rallied on Tibetan National Uprising Day.

Around 10am (4.30am GMT) young people began gathering in front of the Chinese embassy waving Tibetan flags, and their numbers grew to about 30, a local witness reports.
More than 200 security personnel had been dispatched to guard the embassy ahead of the expected pro-Tibet demonstration.

As the protesters shouted slogans such as “China go out” (of Tibet) and “Please support us”, some of them tried to go near the embassy but were pursued by policemen and arrested.
The protesters, who were undeterred by the police presence and refused to leave the site, were then arrested and taken away in vans.

The New Delhi protest was just one of several rallies taking place around the world today marking Tibet’s failed rebellion in 1959 against Chinese rule.
In the southern Indian IT hub of Bangalore, around 600 people Wednesday night commemorated the uprising by holding a peaceful march, a local witness reported.

The Tibetan Government in Exile, based in Dharamsala in northern India, today issued a statement on its website expressing solidarity with those people who sacrificed their lives in the rebellion against the Chinese Communist takeover of Tibet

The statement praises the virtues and support of the Dalai Lama, and closes by hoping for a peaceful settlement with China on “meaningful autonomy” for Tibet.

Tibetans in India march to commemorate National Uprising Day

Bangalore, India, Mar 10 (EFE).- Tibetans of all ages turned up in their hundreds for a march in Bangalore for Tibetan National Uprising Day, which is marked Thursday and commemorates a failed rebellion in 1959 against Chinese rule in Tibet.

The Wednesday evening march began amid thick rush hour traffic, ran for about 1 kilometer and was attended by around 600 people who carried candles and chanted Tibetan prayers, a local witness reported.

Some marchers carried Tibetan flags and signs with messages such as “Tibet in crisis – Stand up for Tibet” and “Tibet will rise” and a large green banner with the image of the Dalai Lama and “Long live his holiness the 14th Dalai Lama” printed on it.

The group then gathered at the local town hall and delivered speeches, where a president of a Tibetan youth congress organization spoke, mostly in Tibetan.
More events marking the uprising are due to be held today in Bangalore, the Silicon Valley of India, which has a large Tibetan population.

The Central Tibetan Administration, also known as the Tibetan Government in Exile, based in Dharamsala, India, issued a statement today on its website on the 57th anniversary of Tibetan National Uprising Day.

The message expressed solidarity with those people who sacrificed their lives in the rebellion against the Chinese Communist takeover of Tibet, and condemned the ill treatment of Tibetans by Chinese government forces.

The statement praises the virtues and support of the Dalai Lama, and closes by hoping for a peaceful settlement with China on “meaningful autonomy” for Tibet.
