Palden Choetso’s self-immolation video given to Tibetan exile group

Palden ChoetsoDharamsala, November 22: A video of Tibetan nun Palden Choetso’s self-immolation on November 3 in Tawu, eastern Tibet has been smuggled out of Tibet. In addition footage of protests calling for freedom following her death has also been received by Students for a Free Tibet.

Palden Choetso was 35-years-old and from Geden Choeling Nunnery. One clip shows her entirely engulfed in flames, standing still – you can watch the short clip here, although we advise viewer discretion.

The recent footage is yet another reminder of the ongoing repression and intolerable conditions for Tibetans and of the desperate sacrifices being in made in Tibet for freedom and the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama – with a total of 11 self-immolations since March this year.
