How long can Tibet burn? (Al Jazeera)

posted Nov 14, 2012, 7:22 PM by The Tibetan Political Review

At least 60 Tibetans have self-immolated since March 2011, and in this week alone, seven have set themselves on fire to protest repressive policies by the Chinese government. This is happening just as Beijing prepares for a once-a-decade leadership transition in November.  What can be done to end social unrest in Tibet?  

Al Jazeera speaks to Lobsang Sangay, head of the Tibetan Government-in-Exile, and Tenzin Dorjee (Tendor), Executive Director of Students for a Free Tibet.
