Chinese authorities arrested Rinchen Samdup from Kham Kardze on charges of the security breach.
According to a source, he was arrested from Kardze while he was having a gathering with his friends. The only information the authorities gave to his family members was that he was arrested on charges of a national security breach.

The information about his arrest was uncovered only after three months, and his whereabouts are still unknown amidst his mother’s deteriorating health. The Chinese authorities successfully kept his arrest secret from the outside with their strict surveillance and censorship systems.

The information about self-immolation took place in 2015 by Shurmo, a 26-year-old man came to light in 2021, after solid five years.

Therefore, the Chinese government uses the censorship technique nationwide but tends to be stricter and more pervasive in the occupied Tibet and Xinjiang regions.


Every one of us has this potential, so why not transform them into our everyday actions?

Country, Nation, Freedom

How wonderful it must be,
To have one’s own Country,
A Country that one belongs to,
A Country that belongs to you.

How wonderful it must be,
No longer to be Stateless,
To belong to nap Nation,
A Nation that belongs to you.

How wonderful it must be,
To regain lost Freedom,
To hold one’s head high,
In liberty and in Freedom!

How wonderful it truly is,
Even to dream of a Country,
A Country that belongs to you,
A Country that will belong to you.

Tibet-the only Country I wish to belong to.
Tibet-the only Country that belongs to me.
A reality that is wonderful to dream about.
A dream that will be a wonderful reality.

All that I long for-
Is to return to my home,
Is this too much to ask for?
Is this too much to long for?

All that I ask for-
Is to return to my Homeland,
Is this too much to ask for?
Is this too much to long for?

All that I have always wanted-
Is freedom for my country,
Is this too much to ask for?
Is this too much to long for?

I know I have a house-
But this is not my home,
I know I have a place to stay-
But this is not where  I belong.

Though I enjoy many freedoms-
I know I am not free,
Though I live in freedom-
Still I long to be Free!
