Causes: Self-Immolations in Tibet

More than 110 Tibetans have set themselves on fire since 2009 to protest China’s policy in their homeland.  Most of the self-immolators called for the return of the Dalai Lama and freedom for the Tibetan people. The Chinese government dismisses these acts as a political plot by the Dalai Lama and his followers to destabilize Tibet and discredit Beijing’s modernization programs there. VOA reports on the protests and the causes behind these horrific acts.
