Hundreds of Czech public offices, including Prague City Hall, plan to raise the flag of Tibet on Tuesday to mark the anniversary of the territory’s uprising against Chinese occupation in 1959.
The “Flag for Tibet” campaign aims to highlight long-term human rights violations in the autonomous Chinese province.
In 1996, when the initiative first started here, four Czech city and town halls flew Tibet’s flag. Last year, nearly 750 took part.
