Tibet on Fire

Tibet on Fire

9781784781538

A manifesto for Tibetan resistance, from the voice of the Tibetan movement

Since the 2008 uprising, nearly one-hundred and fifty Tibetan monks have self-immolated in protest of the Chinese occupation of their lands. Most have died from their wounds. 'If Tibetans saw even a sliver of an opportunity to hold demonstrations, then they would not resort to self-immolation,' Woeser, the dissident Tibetan poet, has written in the New York Times.

The Tibetans she references includes herself: a prominent voice of the Tibetan movement, and one of the few Tibetan authors to write in Chinese, Woeser has been placed under house arrest and lives under close surveillance. Tibet On Fire is her account of the oppression Tibetans face, and the ideals driving both the self-immolators and other Tibetans like herself. Angry and clear, Tibet On Fire is a clarion call for the world to take action.
