Tsewang Norbu | 次旺诺布

Tsewang Norbu, a 29-year old Tibetan monk from Nyitso monastery in Kham Kardze, eastern Tibet died today after setting himself on fire to protest Chinese rule in Tibet.

At around 12.30 Tibetan local time, Tsewang Norbu started raising slogans at the Chume Bridge in the centre of Tawu, Kardze calling for freedom in Tibet and the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Tibet. Around 10 minutes later, Tsewang Norbu drank petrol, doused himself with petrol and set himself on fire.

Tsering Woeser, the Beijing based award winning Tibetan poet and blogger wrote on Twitter: “Tsewang threw free Tibet leaflets and shouted slogans, calling for a free Tibet and return of H.H. the Dalai Lama back to Tibet”.

“After ten minutes, he immolated himself on the national high road to Beijing, and died on the spot.” Woeser tweeted. “Monks from Norbu’s monastery took away the deceased’s body to the monastery and while preparing for the last rites and rituals, Chinese soldiers even tried to take away the body forcibly from the monks.”

Tsewang Norbu | 次旺诺布 was the 3rd(3rdinside Tibet) Tibetan self-immolator since 2009.

次旺诺布,康道坞(今四川省甘孜藏族自治州道孚县)灵雀寺11僧人,29岁,又名诺果。
2011年8月15日下午2点,次旺诺布在道孚县政府对面的滨河路散发了呼吁西藏独立和祝福达赖喇嘛生日的传单之后,喝下汽油并在身上倾倒汽油点火自焚,呼喊“西藏要自由!”、“祈愿达赖喇嘛永久住世!”当场牺牲。
军警试图抢走他的遗体,被当地藏人僧俗阻拦,并将他的遗体用黄绸布包裹抬回寺院,后由寺院及信众隆重火葬。大量军警包围并关闭寺院,监控电话,盘查外来人员,封锁消息外泄。
这之前的一个多月,即7月6日是尊者达赖喇嘛77周岁华诞,道孚僧俗信众成千上万聚集到玛沁本拉圣山煨桑燃香,祈祷祝福,但被军警包围、驱逐。后又对参加祝祷尊者生日的灵雀寺断水断电,导致次旺诺布为抗议压迫,当街自焚。
他出生于道孚县麻孜乡鲁瓦村牧民家庭,父亲名叫措莱,母亲名叫肖列。
新华社有简短报道并谴责次旺诺布。 中国中央电视台2012年5月播的官方宣传片有简单提及,称次旺诺布是充翁洛卜。

遗言:

“西藏要自由!”、“祈愿达赖喇嘛永久住世!”
