Tsewang Dakpa and other demonstrators gathered near city hall to mark the 50th anniversary of the first Tibetan uprising against Chinese rule.

To mark the 50th anniversary of the first Tibetan uprising against Chinese rule, which forced the Dalai Lama into exile, members of the Tibetan Assn. of Southern California, Los Angeles Friends of Tibet and several other groups plan to march today from Los Angeles City Hall to the Chinese Consulate.

The marchers will gather at 11:30 am. outside City Hall at 200 N. Spring St. and begin walking south on Grand Avenue to the consulate at 443 Shatto Place, where they will hold a demonstration about an hour later.
