SANTA FE (AP) - New Mexico plans to celebrate the anniversary of Tibet's rebellion against China.
State Secretary Veronica N. Gonzales will read a proclamation at the state Capitol on behalf of Gov. Susana Martinez, proclaiming Monday as "Tibet Day."
The day marks 55 years since thousands of Tibetans marched in Lhasa, Tibet's capital, and surrounded the home of the Dalai Lama in an uprising against the People's Republic of China.
Officials say a peace march is planned at the Santa Fe Plaza after the 10 a.m. ceremony in the Rotunda.
