Welcome to Tibet on Fire

Over 119 Tibetans have set themselves on fire since February 2009 to protest Chinese rule. It takes a lot of repression to motivate someone to do something so desperate—especially when they’re commited to nonviolence

It’s an overwhelming story. To make things worse, the news about Tibet is scattered across lots of indie sources, most of which are little known and hard to find.

We want to bring that news together in a way that helps make sense of it: interactive maps, timelines, visualizations, custom Twitter searches, and more. (See examples of what what we’d like to do here, here, here, and here.)

Now we need to hire a developer to help us build these tools. That can’t happen without your help.

If you’re a web developer, a programmer, a graphic designer, or a fundraiser who would like to help out, please contact us

If not, you can still help make Tibet on Fire a success—by sharing our website social media, by telling your friends and family about us, or by making a contribution.

Thank you for being a part of this!
