Tibetans Remember Jampel Yeshi (phayul.com, Mar. 27, 2013)

Jampel Yeshi, 27, set himself on fire on March 26 last year to protest against China’s occupation of Tibet a day before the then Chinese President Hu Jintaos’ visit to attend the 4th BRICS Summit in New Delhi.

In his last hand-written message, Yeshi wrote:

'At a time when we are making our final move toward our goal – if you have money, it is the time to spend it; if you are educated it is the time to produce results; if you have control over your life, I think the day has come to sacrifice your life. The fact that Tibetan people are setting themselves on fire in this 21st century is to let the world know about their suffering, and to tell the world about the denial of basic human rights. If you have any empathy, stand up for the Tibetan people.'

Yeshi became the second self-immolate in exile to die after Thupten Ngodup, who died from self-immolation in 1998.
