Hundreds of Tibetans yesterday held a march in Taipei to commemorate an uprising by Tibetans against China 47 years ago.
The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) voiced support for the demonstration, urging China to give up imperialism and the persecution of Tibet and Taiwan through military force.
Tibetans living in Taiwan gathered at 228 Memorial Peace Park in the morning and set out on a march after singing Tibet’s national anthem and reading a declaration from the Dalai Lama.
Shouting out “we want freedom and human rights” and “release political prisoners,” the marchers and their supporters also chanted “support Tibet’s and Taiwan’s independence” when passing before the Legislative Yuan.
Holding signs and banners bearing such slogans as “anti-annexation, anti-invasion, supporting Tibet’s independence,” many DPP members joined the march.
