CNN Beijing Bureau Chief
Tuesday marks the 50th anniversary of the failed Tibetan uprising against Chinese rule and the chasm between Beijing and critics of its Tibet policies remains deep and wide.
Pro-Tibet supporters have marched in London and other cities to mark the anniversary. "Tibetans have had enough Chinese rule," said Matt Wiskase, a protest organizer in London. "They emphatically reject Chinese rule in Tibet and they want to be free."
The Dalai Lama said Tuesday that the Chinese government has made life "hell on Earth" for Tibetans during the half-century since a failed uprising against its rule in 1959.
