MARATHON MARCH IN NEW YORK ON HUMAN RIGHTS DAY

December 10, New York - Over 200 Tibetans, along with the usual supporters, commemorated the World Human Rights Day by marching across New York in a full-day rally organized by the Regional Tibetan Youth Congress (RTYC) of New York and New Jersey. The purpose of the rally was to raise concerns about the apalling human rights situation in Tibet and to urge the international community to pressure China to free Tibet.

The rally started at 10 AM at Cadman Plaza in Brooklyn, from where the colorfully dressed Tibetans - their chubas and the flags flapping in the wind - walked across the historic Brooklyn Bridge toward the United Nations, and finally to the Chinese Consulate. Along the way, the demonstrators passed thousands of onlookers in Chinatown and Times Square. The rally ended at 4:30 PM outside the Chinese Consulate, where the Tibetans thoroughly engaged in loud chanting of slogans, led by the chant leader Kusho Sonam Wangdu of RTYC.
