(TibetanReview.net, Mar10’19) – Anywhere from 3,000 to 5,000 Tibetans and supporters are expected to gather in front of the United Nations Headquarters in New York City and take out a rally to the Chinese consulate on Mar 10 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Tibetan national uprising day. The event is being organized by eight Tibetan or Tibet groups based in New York, including the regional chapters of Tibetan Youth Congress and Tibetan Women Association as well as Students for a Free Tibet and the US Tibet Committee.

It will be a solidarity event which will be addressed by speakers from prominent pro-democracy and human rights groups on issues ranging from political prisoners in Tibet and internment camps in East Turkestan (Chinese: Xinjiang), to foreign intervention and censorship on US and Canadian university campuses, said the organizers in a statement.

The participants will carry Tibetan national flags and placards during their march through the streets of New York, passing through prominent landmarks that will include Times Square, the UN building and the Chinese Consulate.

The other organizers of the event are the Tibetan Community of New York & New Jersey, Dokham Chushi Gangdruk, ​Utsang Association of New York & New Jersey, and Domey Association of New York & New Jersey.
