News at Eleven (Back Page): "Twenty-six cases make it clear

what Tibetans have wanted to articulate," said the joint letter by Woeser and a senior Tibetan religious figure, Arjia Rinpoche, now living in exile in the United States, and Tibet's Amdo-based poet Gade Tsering.

"Yet, articulation of one's will cannot be an ultimate goal. The will has to be put into practice, transforming into reality," they said in the letter titled "Appeal to Tibetans To Cease Self-Immolation: Cherish Your Life in a Time of Oppression."

"Only by staying alive can the will become a reality. As long as self-immolation continues, every life would become another irredeemable loss."
