(TibetanReview.net, Mar12, 2018) – The Chinese Consulate in South Africa’s Cape Town city has, for the first time, witnessed a protest by human rights activists and Tibet supporters on Mar 10, the 59th anniversary of the Tibetan National Uprising.

The protestors were stated to have called on President Xi Jinping to revise the failed human rights policies in China and expressed concerns at the deteriorating human rights situation in the country.

Displaying portraits of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the protesters were stated to have called for freedom for Tibetans and, in particular, for the release of the Tibetan language advocate Tashi Wangchuk who is awaiting verdict after his trial for alleged incitement of separatism.
