India News Alert

Tibetan activists to hold marches and rallies in Delhi March 10-12 in commemoration of 1959 Tibetan uprising against Chinese government

TIMEFRAME expected from 3/10/2019, 12:00 AM until 3/12/2019, 11:59 PM (Asia/Kolkata). COUNTRY/REGION Dehli, Dharamshala


The TIbetan Youth Congress (TYC) has called for three days of rallies in Delhi from Sunday, March 10, to Tuesday, March 12, to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the 1959 Tibetan uprising against the Chinese government. On Sunday, thousands of demonstrators marched from the Ram Leela Maidan to Jantar Mantar, followed by a candlelight vigil at Majnu Ka Tilla. On Monday, March 11, participants reportedly plan to march from Khan Market to the United Nations building. The series of protest actions will conclude with another candlelight vigil on Tuesday, March 12, at an as yet unnamed location. Related events are also to be expected at and around Dharamsala (and its suburb McLeod Ganj), where the Dalai Lama has resided since fleeing Tibet after the failed 1959 uprising. Gatherings at other key locations (e.g. the Chinese Embassy) are possible; an increased security presence and localized transportation disruptions are to be anticipated surrounding all gatherings.


Individuals in Delhi and Dharamsala are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate crowded conditions, localized disruptions, and a heightened security presence near any demonstrations, and avoid all public or political demonstrations as a precaution.
