The latest issue of Hong Kong based magazine iSun Affairs has perhaps the most shocking, but effective cover story on the Tibetan self-immolation crisis to be published. In addition to the gruesome cover photo, the magazine also has a moving tableau of the 96 protesters who have set themselves on fire since February 2009.
Launched in 2011, iSun Affairs is a investigative magazine run by liberal mainland journalists but published in Hong Kong in order to avoid CPC censors. The magazine won four press awards for its coverage of the Wukan riot in Guangdong and Chen Guangcheng’s escape from house arrest.
iSun Affairs and partner television channel Sun TV are both banned on the Chinese mainland.
