Today Tibetans around the world commemorate the 61st National Uprising Day against the illegal occupation of Tibet by China in 1959.
The 1959 Tibetan uprising began on 10 March 1959, when a revolt erupted in Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, which had been under the effective control of the People's Republic of China since 1951.
China continues to insist that Tibetans are happy and prosperous -- but won’t allow journalists, tourists, or diplomats to see for themselves.
