Tsering Kyi | 才让吉

Teenager Tsering Kyi, a pupil at the Tibetan Middle School in Machu who was aged 19, set fire to herself on Saturday afternoon (March 3) in the vegetable market of Machu town (Chinese: Maqu) in Kanlho (Chinese: Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture), Gansu.

Authorities have blockaded the school Tsering Kyi attended in Machu (Chinese: Maqu) county, Kanlho (Chinese: Gannan) Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Gansu province (Tibetan area of Amdo), and have imposed a tight military lockdown in the area following the incident, with people’s cellphones being investigated in an attempt to prevent dissemination of any images or footage that may have been taken of the self-immolation.

Tsering Kyi | 才让吉 was the 26th(24thinside Tibet) Tibetan self-immolator since 2009. She was the 4thfemale self-immolator.

安多玛曲(今甘肃省甘南藏族自治州玛曲县)藏族中学初三12班学生,女,20岁。
因甘肃省教育部门将藏文学校的藏文教材更换为汉文教材,为抗议藏语文教育遭严重削弱的教育政策,2012年3月3日下午3点多,才让吉在玛曲县一菜市场用铁丝将棉花缠裹身体,并用汽油浸透后点火自焚,遭市场内汉人商贩乱石纷砸,被军警抢走遗体,当场牺牲,遗体未交给家人。
她出生于曼日玛乡智合桃行政村六队牧民家庭,父亲名叫索南益西。
英国卫报在报道《一位藏人少女悲惨的自焚之路》34中写到: “一月初,才让吉在与她的一个亲戚谈到一连串的自焚事件时表示,她很理解他们为什么要这样做。‘没有人可以像这样继续生活下去。’ 她说。”
在事件发生前几天,才让吉还说过:“我们应该做些什么,如果不能为西藏做些事,我们的生命毫无意义。” 这两句话都应该是她的遗言。
而新华社报道35,她头部因撞伤,有“脑部外伤后遗症症状。因治疗耽误学习,才让吉学习成绩不断下降,心理压力大,对生活和学习逐渐失去信心。她头脑有病,学习成绩下降而自杀。”

遗言:

“没有人可以像这样继续生活下去。” “我们应该做些什么,如果不能为西藏做些事,我们的生命毫无意义。”
