(TibetanReview.net, Sep22, 2018) – Come Mar 10, 2019, the 60th anniversary of the Tibetan Uprising Day, and the Tibetan national flag will newly fly high over a local government chambers in New South Wales, Australia.

Councilors of the Blue Mountains Council unanimously voted at this week’s meeting to show support for the Tibetan people, including the refugees who now live in the Mountains, by raising the flag on Mar 10 next year and in all future years, reported bluemountainsgazette.com.au Sep 20.

The City of Blue Mountains is a local government area located in the Blue Mountains range west of Sydney.

The report cited Greens Councilor Kerry Brown, who had moved the notice of motion, as saying the Mountains had a long association with the people of Tibet, with many of them having settled in the area.

The report noted that Every July, a ceremony is held in Katoomba, the Council seat, to celebrate the birthday of the Dalai Lama.

Now, following the resolution, the Tibetan flag will be raised over the Katoomba chambers next March and in subsequent years.

Brown has said that even if China withdrew any trade with the Mountains, it was the right thing to do to recognise China’s continued denial of Tibetan people’s human rights.
