On Thursday morning Tsampa Revolution @TsampaRevolt published a photo on Twitter that is said to show a new Tibetan self-immolation, which is said to have taken place in Tsekhok, in eastern Tibet. Since February 2009, 125 Tibetans have self-immolated, according to the International Campaign for Tibet. Today’s report brings the total to 126. The immolations have been a protest against the Chinese regime’s policies in Tibet, which Tibetan groups say are leading to the cultural annihilation of the Tibetan people. Epoch Times cannot independently verify today’s report.
