(KSL News) -- Utah's Tibetan community met today to protest Chinese rule in that country. Today marks the 48th anniversary of Tibetan's last attempt to overthrow the Chinese.

PRC rule began in 1950, after the area was occupied by Chinese troops.

Rapgen Chazotsang, Tibetan: "They saying goes, 'might is right,' and the world just, they accepted that Tibet was part of China because that was the easy thing to do."

Demonstrators say human rights in Tibet are poor under the Chinese and that Tibetans should be released from PRC control and allowed to rule themselves.
