Tibet’s Sacrifice: Exiled Lives

“Tibet’s Sacrifice: Exiled Lives” by Dan Carino is a multimedia piece of comics journalism examining Tibetan activists living in India and their willingness to die for their cause through self-immolation.

Self-immolation among Tibetan activists has been on the rise over the last few years with TIME Magazine naming it the #1 underreported story of 2011. In New Delhi, India, Carino interviewed activist Shibayan Raha, who was arrested in 2007 for attempting to self-immolate, and visited the refugee settlement Majnu Ka Tilla to see why so many Tibetans seem willing to die for their homeland.
