TIBET

The Social Media Monk

[WARNING: GRAPHIC VIDEO]

A Tibetan Buddhist monk, armed with an iPhone, laptop and a network of informants, breaks through the “Great Firewall of China” to reveal the horrible truths unfolding in his homeland.

Meet Kanyag Tsering, whose sole mission is to use the Internet and social media to combat Chinese censorship of self-immolations in Tibet — nearly 100 of them in the past 3 years.
