Candlelight vigil by Tibetan monks

SELF-IMMOLATION #8: Tibet’s nonviolent freedom movement grows desperate

Norbu Damdul, a 19 year-old former monk from Tibet, set himself ablaze yesterday in bold defiance of worsening Chinese oppression. Damdul was heard shouting “Tibet, the Land of Snow, should be independent. His Holiness the Dalai Lama should be allowed to return to Tibet,” before getting doused with water and brutally beaten by Chinese police then hauled away to an unknown location.
