On March 10th, Tibetans and Tibet supporters around the world will take to the streets to commemorate the 54th anniversary of the 1959 Tibetan National Uprising.

We mark March 10th each year to show solidarity with Tibetans inside Tibet and to honor and support the brave resistance to Chinese rule that continues to this day. Tibetans in Tibet are risking everything to ensure their message is heard and acted upon by the outside world. With more than Tibetan 100 self-immolations, this year is especially vital. We cannot back down and we will not back down. Freedom is our right! Bhoe gyalo!

We would never hear about Tibet except for its wealth in oil and other minerals, desired by US imperialism. Tibet has been part of China for over 700 years and will remain so forever. The leader of this anti-China movement, the Dalai Lama, is a lifelong CIA agent. China also borders the richest mineral prize of all: Russia.

which states, among other things:
"On the question of the size of the Tibetan population, the Dalai clique has spread many rumors. The most sensational was that more than 1.2 million people were killed after the peaceful liberation of Tibet. In 1953, the Tibetan local government under the Dalai Lama reported the population stood at 1 million people. If 1.2 million inhabitants had been massacred, it would have been a case of genocide and certainly the population in Tibet could not have increased to the present 2 million."

As an Indigenous elder I have march with the Tibetans against the brutal occupation Tibet by the Chinese. There is no justification and the Chinese need to go just as this illegal government needs to go in Indigenous lands - Turtle Island. Everybody is welcome here but the government (Masonic order) as I will be marching with the Tibetans but I advised the Tibetans not to carry the United Snakes of Amerikkklan flag. This would be like if I was protesting for Natives rights here in Tibet (occupied) and carried the Chinese flag. Lets all understand each others plight and come together and smash on the oppressor.
