Pithoragarh, March 10
On the occasion of the Tibetan revolt day, the Tibetan settlers in Nainital kept their business establishments closed and took out a procession from Mallital to the Tallital market of the town. They demanded that an international human right’s team be sent to Tibet to take stock of human right’s violation there.

The Tibetan community worldwide celebrates March 10 as the revolt day. On this day in 1959, the Tibetans revolted against the Chinese occupation, which was ultimately crushed by the China using armed forces.
“The Chinese authorities have killed more than a million Tibetans, destroyed 60,000 monasteries and jailed thousands of youths since the revolt began in 1959,” said Tenzing Lundup, president of the Tibetan Regional Youth Congress.
The Tibetan marchers held placards some of which read ‘How many lives will China take?’ and ‘China lies and Tibetan dies’.
