Readers' Comments on "TIBET : WHERE EVEN FIERY RESISTANCE CAN BE PEACEFUL"
Tibetan people's resistance against their colonial masters has become too fiery to be ignored. On January 19, Jigjey Kyab a 17-year old Tibetan school boy of Shigtsang Pungkor town of Luchu in Eastern Tibet (now in Gansu province of China), was seen running in the street and shouting slogans demanding Tibet's freedom from China and Dalai Lama's return to Tibet. His clothes were doused in kerosene and he was holding a lighter in his hand....

Thank you for an excellent piece of writing which I think really sums up the impact or rather the non impact the self immolations have on the world communty.
I pray please no more self immolations
too many precious Tibetan lives have already been lost!
It seems very much that the world community only acts and takes note of violent protests as the protests by Tibetans and supporters are largely ingnored.
I am a very committed supporter for the Tibetan cause and attend every protest in London including the weekly vigil.
For years now I have noticed that when our protests passes without any incident which they normaly do,nothing is ever mentioned in newspapers or on TV news.
However as soon as there is some sort of trouble with the police as has happened occassionally for instance a handfull of Tibetans trying to get too close to the chinese embassy suddenly photographers and tv cameras appear out of nowhere and we make the papers and the tv news!
My sad conclusion regarding all this is as follows:we could be protesting a million strong without any incident and the world does not get to hear about it!
A small number of protesters try to storm the chinese embassy or has some sort of scuffle with the police and we make the news!
What conclusion can we draw from this?
My question is:IS NON VIOLENCE WORKING?

TIBET WILL BE FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
