In the U.S. domestic violence is a terrible issue.  But what do you do if you live in Afghanistan?  In this horrific story, the majority of the patients on this burn unit have made the only protest they can, and burned themselves.  These are the ones who survived.  http://www.cnn.com/video/?hpt=hp_t3#/video/world/2012/02/06/pkg-walsh-afghan-self-immolation.cnn

How bad do things have to be before pouring cooking oil on yourself and lighting it starts to seem like a better option?  What can we do about this situation?  Anything?
