China celebrates the 50° anniversary of the "Tibet Autonomous Region"

An act disputed by the Dalai Lama, which celebrated in June, in Glastonbury, in the United Kingdom, the 80 anniversary.

In exile, for six decades, the spiritual leader of Tibetans demanding real autonomy for Tibet.

The Chinese Government says not to believe and assert that the true goal of the Dalai Lama is the independence of the region.

The "Tibet Autonomous Region" covers the central and Western areas of the country. The historical regions of Kham and Amdo were integrated in China September 1, 1965.

In 1959 the Chinese Liberation Army subdued an uprising that demanded the independence of Tibet. A Himalayan region that China's Communist regime regards as an integral part of the country since 1950.

Tens of thousands of Tibetans are killed, many were forced into exile.

The 14° Dalai Lama, fearing for his life, and the entire Government of Lhasa, found refuge in neighboring India.

Since that time, Tibet has been the scene of frequent uprisings taking the Beijing Government accusing the independence by tension on the streets.

In 2008, a group of Buddhist monks began a protest March, day 10 March, on the anniversary of the 1959 rebellion. The demonstration, which started peacefully, degenerated into violent clashes in Lhasa, the capital, and in the region of Gansu.

The Chinese Government accuses the Dalai Lama of being behind the Organization of protests, a few months before the Olympic Games of Beijing 2008. The charge was refuted, by the spiritual leader, who insisted on a real autonomy for Tibet.

Tibetans continue to protest against the Chinese rule, using any type of action to draw the attention of the international community to the cause.
