Vigil of the Week: Vancouverites stand with Tibet

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Monday (December 10) marks the 70th anniversary of International Human Rights Day.

      For those who remain deeply troubled by China’s annexation of Tibet after the Chinese Civil War and the impact this has had on the Tibetan people, there will be a gathering that evening from 6 to 8 p.m. outside the Chinese Consulate (3380 Granville Street).

      It’s just four months ahead of the 60th anniversary of the Tibetan Uprising, when Lhasa residents launched an unsuccessful revolt against Chinese government rule on March 10, 1959.
