March 10 Uprising Day Reports from all across Canada – Vancouver, BC

[March 10, 2008 – Vancouver, BC] The Vancouver Tibetan community and supporters were joined by one hundred of Tibetans from Vancouver Island, Oregon, and Washington to mark the 49th anniversary of Tibetan National Uprising Day. The crowd of over a hundred and fifty marched from downtown Vancouver to the Chinese Consulate where they staged a powerful die-in demonstration at the gates of the Consulate. The protest was louder and bolder than previous rallies and the chants were wildly energetic. The City of Vancouver declared March 10 ‘Tibet Day’.
