Setting of Serfs Emancipation Day major move to fight Dalai clique
Adjust font size:

The setting of Serfs Emancipation Day is an important move to wage a "tit-for-tat struggle" against the Dalai clique, a senior Tibetan legislator said Friday.

"We'll, for a long period of time, face austere test in maintaining unification of the motherland, fighting ethnic splittism, and maintaining social stability," said Legqog, director of the Standing Committee of the Tibetan Autonomous Regional People's Congress, on the sidelines of the annual national parliament session in Beijing.

Tibetan legislators endorsed a motion in January this year setting March 28 as Serfs Emancipation Day to commemorate the emancipation of millions of serfs and slaves in Tibet 50 years ago.

In 1959, the central government foiled an armed rebellion staged by the Dalai Lama and his supporters.
