Tibetans around the world marked the 56th anniversary of the Tibetan National Uprising Day. From Dharamsala to New Delhi, New York City to San Francisco, Zurich to Edinburgh, and Sydney to Hong Kong, Tibetans and supporters marched the main streets of their respective cities to show solidarity with the Tibetans inside Tibet and commemorate the significant day of march 10 in Tibet's history.

On this day in 1959, hundreds of Tibetans risked their lives and poured into the streets of Lhasa and protested against the presence of Peoples' Republic of China inside Tibet.

Tens of Thousands of Tibetans lost their lives to PLA following the protest, ultimately leading to the Dalai Lama's flight into exile in India.
