Chinese Embassy in India – level 2

12-03-2018 07:00

In 1950, China occupied Tibet, and 9 years later, there was an uprising against China. China suppressed the uprising, which took place on 10th March.

The 10th March is remembered by people as the Tibetan National Uprising Day. Ahead of the day, protesters tried to enter the Chinese embassy in New Delhi, India.

China says that Tibet has always been part of its country, but Tibetans say that Tibet was free from China until the occupation.

Difficult words: occupy (send an army to, take under control), uprising (a rebellion, a revolution), suppress (stop).
