Woman sets herself on fire to protest racism

This is a very disturbing article, which includes actual pictures, of a woman setting herself on fire to protest racism.

From article:

Maggy Delvaux-Mufu, a mother of three in her forties, alerted several national newspapers late on Tuesday morning last week that she would be burning herself alive on place des Martyrs at 12.45 am, before setting out accompanied by her husband to walk through the centre of town to her macabre rendezvous. The police were alerted and officers were deployed to the Rousegärtchen.

I warn before going to the article, it contains graphic disturbing images of the actual woman on fire. I almost got sick after viewing those pictures. This shouldn't be a way to protest against racism. She is fighting for her life now.
