Gonpo Tsering | 贡保次仁

November 26: In more alarming reports coming out of Tibet, a Tibetan man – the third in a single day – set himself on fire in Luchu region of Kanlho, eastern Tibet protesting China’s rule over of Tibet.

A group of exile Tibetans from Luchu identified the Tibetan self-immolator as Gonpo Tsering, 24 years of age and father of three children, all below the age of six.

“Martyr Gonpo Tsering set himself on fire in front of the main prayer hall of the Ala Deu-go Monastery in Ala region of Luchu at around 6 pm (local time) today,” the group told Phayul citing sources in the region. “While engulfed in flames, he raised slogans calling for Tibet’s freedom, human rights in Tibet, and the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama from exile.”

Gonpo Tsering succumbed to his injuries at the site of his protest.

Local Tibetans carried his charred body inside the Monastery where monks and a large number of Tibetans from the surrounding regions assembled, against official orders, to offer prayers for the deceased and express their solidarity.

Gonpo Tsering | 贡保次仁 was the 91th(88thinside Tibet) Tibetan self-immolator since 2009.
