Dawa Tsering | 达瓦次仁

A Tibetan monk in a remote region of China’s Sichuan province set fire to himself before a large crowd on Tuesday, the 10th self-immolation protest against Chinese rule.

Dawa Tsering, 31, set himself alight [Tsering Woser reported him as age 38] during an annual ritual gathering at a monastery in the Kardze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture after calling on Tibetans to unite against Beijing’s rule in Tibetan-majority areas, witnesses said.

“The monk self-immolated in the vicinity of the [Kardze] Monastery, at the monks’ usual annual gathering, as the ritual dance was going on,” a monk from Kardze (in Chinese, Ganzi) Monastery in southwestern China told RFA.

“Most of the witnesses were monks, and there weren’t many laypeople there at the time,” the monk said.

“He was shouting long live His Holiness the Dalai Lama,” referring to Tibet’s spiritual leader the Dalai Lama, who is living in exile in India.

Dawa Tsering | 达瓦次仁 was the 11th(11thinside Tibet) Tibetan self-immolator since 2009.
