Hundreds of pro-Independence Tibetans and other supporters marched down 42nd Street from the United Nations to the Chinese embassy Tuesday. Wrapped in Tibetan flags and head bands they chanted slogans and carried black flags that read '50 years of Resistance,' in memory of the failed uprising 50 years ago that ended with the Dalai Lama fleeing in exile to India.

Tsering Dolma, 50, has been in New York for two years. She escaped to India, where her husband and two sons remain, and immigrated to the US two years ago. She says she still has family back in Tibet and fears for them. She talks about her hopes for the future.
