Episode Info:

On March 10th, 1959, Tibetans rose up in Lhasa to protect His Holiness the Dalai Lama from perceived threat. As a result, the Chinese Army—still in the process of colonizing Tibet—opened fire on innocent Tibetans, killing thousands. This audio documentary brings listeners outside Vancouver’s Chinese consulate, where Tibetan-Canadians gather every March 10th to honour those slain on Uprising Day in 1959 and to demand an end to human rights abuses inside Tibet today.
