The gathering was addressed by representative Mr Lungtok of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) while Mr Taro Kanada of the Students for a Free Tibet read out the statement of the CTA President Lobsang Sangay.

The march took off from the Kashiwagi Park in Shinjuku city with as symbolic mourning for those who had lost their lives during the Chinese invasion and under their occupation rule. Displaying Tibetan national flags and banners, and with some Tibetans having their faces painted with Tibetan flags, the gathering marched through the main street of Shinjuku city, chanting slogans such as “Free Tibet” and “Human Rights in Tibet”.
