Find out about the wave of Tibetan self-immolations

Al Jazeera English asked Halftone to create an interactive visualization to mark the 54th anniversary of the Tibetan Uprising against Chinese oppression.

To protest against Chinese government policies, at least 105 Tibetans in historic Tibet have set themselves on fire in the last two years - the vast majority of whom have died. This map presents key events and incidents of self-immolation that have occurred in this wave of protests.
