Father of two dies in Tibet protest

“These people look down on us… they won’t leave us in peace”
Statement from latest protester to give his life for Tibet

This is Shichung. He was a farmer and part-time tailor in Ngaba County, eastern Tibet.
Last Saturday (28 September) he used to occasion of the annual Mani prayer festival to set himself on fire as a statement of rejection of China’s continued occupation of Tibet.

This is just the latest in a long line of similar cries for freedom. Around 120 Tibetans have now doused their body in gasoline and set themselves alight.

Shichung died at the scene. The 41-year-old had expressed his feelings about the ongoing Chinese occupation to friends a few days ago saying: “These people (Chinese authorities) look down on us (Tibet) and it seems they won’t leave us in peace.”

His body was forcibly removed by Chinese police and military personnel who were already on hand to keep an eye on the Tibetans who were celebrating the prayer festival.

China’s brutal occupation of Tibet and its complete disregard for the human rights of Tibetans is a continuing stain on the conscience of the world.

Shichung was married with two children. We cannot allow his protest to be ignored by China and the rest of the world.
