Hundreds protest in front of Chinese embassy

About two hundred people gathered in front of the Chinese embassy in Prague on Sunday to protest the Chinese occupation of Tibet. The participants called for freedom and independence for the pro Himalayan nation and drew attention to human rights violations and recent cases of self-immolation. Like last year, organisers from Amnesty International made an unsuccessful attempt to hand over a letter to embassy representatives. The event commemorated the 1950 Lhasa uprising, in which some 80,000 Tibetans were killed.
