50th anniversary of failed Tibetan uprising against Chinese rule

10Mar09

Dalai LamaFrom the Associated Press: the Dalai Lama stated today in a speech in Dharmsala, India that Chinese rule in Tibet has led to a “hell on earth” and the only way to solve the issue is through peace.
The address came in front of thousands of supporters and commemorated the 50th anniversary of the failed Tibetan uprising that sent him into exile. China has launched a “brutal crackdown” in Tibet since protests shook the Himalayan region last year, the Dalai Lama said Tuesday.

Here are several updates & comments by Twitter users worldwide, reposted by an amazing site, Breaking Tweets: the “hyperlocal gone global” (more on this later).
