On Saturday, March 21st more than a thousand Tibetans protested in Ragya, an Amdo town in eastern Tibet, after a young monk named Tashi Sangpo jumped into the Machu river (Yellow river). When he engaged in this desperate act, Tashi was in police custody for reportedly raising the Tibetan flag atop the monastery and distributing pro-independence leaflets on March 10th. Although Tashi remains missing, Tibetans in the area say it is unlikely he could survive given the strength of the river.

This disturbing and graphic footage shows the unimaginable suffering Tibetans are enduring at the hands of the Chinese authorities. But our actions can show them that they are not alone.
