Four countries trashed by China are to stage a joint demonstration outside the Chinese Embassy in London on Friday 8 th August to mark the opening of the Olympic Games in Beijing ,

Representatives of Burma , Sudan , Tibet and Zimbabwe will lay flowers outside the Embassy in mourning for the deaths of millions of victims of dictators supported by China .

The demonstration will star t at 10 am and there will be a media presentation at 11 am when the Zimbabwean, Burmese and Sudanese dictators will be seen bowing down to a figure representing China . The realistic masks used were widely shown at the Europe / Africa summit in Lisbon last December.

The link is that all four countries are victims of China 's use of its veto in the UN Security Council to protect human rights abusers.

The demonstration will culminate at 13.08 when the Tibetan flag will be raised, accompanied by the national anthems of the four countries. We will be joined by the Falun Gong who have been protesting in support of freedom outside the Chinese Embassy for many years.
