This is only one of a series of photos. The rest (nsfl)
There are a few from other angles too that I won’t link as they’re not very pleasant, and can easily be googled anyway.

This photo used to make me so afraid it was horrifying to think about him slowly dying. It’s taken me many years to realise the power and inspiration in this image. Thankyou for keeping his memory and the memory of his sacrifice alive.
"Let them burn and we shall clap our hands" -Madam nhu. First lady of the south vietnamese government. She fled vietnam and lived in rome till 2011 i also think she refered this to a barbique but i cant find the quote

Love this Rage Against The Machine album
