A line of portraits of Tibetan citizens who have committed suicide by self-immolation are set up by Pro-Tibet demonstrators outside City Hall in Alameda, Calif. in advance of a ceremony to recognize Chinese National Day, Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2013. The program that was planned by the city to celebrate the 64th anniversary of Mao Zedong's ascendancy to power in China, that included raising the Chinese flag on a temporary flagpole, was cancelled by the Chinese consulate "in the interests of promoting harmony."
