September 02, 1985

China officially celebrated the 20th anniversary of the incorporation of Tibet as an autonomous region under Chinese rule with a series of carefully controlled mass rallies and speeches in the Himalayan area. Foreigners were barred. In an anniversary message, the Peking authorities urged the building of "a new and socialist Tibet." Chinese festivities have touched off protests by Tibetan refugees in India, who retain allegiance to the Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism.
