Statement of the Tibetan Parliament Exile on the occasion of the 57th Anniversary of the Tibetan National Uprising Day
Today is the 57th anniversary of the great uprising in Tibet's capital Lhasa in 1959 carried out by people from all The Three Provinces of Tibet in protest against the evil deeds and designs of the communist Chinese. Likewise, it is also the day we remember our heroic fellow-Tibetan men and women of patriotism. On this momentous occasion, therefore, I, speaking on behalf of the Tibetan Parliament in Exile, offer my commemoration and shared sense of well being and destiny through the vicissitudes of good and bad times as well as solidarity with the heroic men and women of Tibet who, driven by patriotism, have sacrificed their lives and conditions of livelihood for the sake of Tibet's religious, national, and public causes. Also, to all those Tibetans left behind in Tibet who still continue to endure hardship under the brutal persecution of the government of China, I offer our shared sense of well being and destiny through the vicissitudes of good and bad times and solidarity.
