Politics & press news – Embassy 18 July/August 2009

Uighurs protest outside Chinese Embassy

The Chinese Embassy was recently the scene of a pro-Uighur demonstration in which around 100 protesters demanded a UN investigation into the deaths of 190 people in the Xinjiang region, following the eruption of some of the worst ethnic unrest in China in decades. The protesters then marched to Downing Street to hand a petition to Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
