Chinese expatriates staged a peaceful demonstration in Vienna on Saturday to show support for the Beijing Olympics and express their anger at the "pro-Tibet independence" activists' attacks of the Olympic torch relay.
The demonstration, titled "Overseas Chinese in Vienna Supporting Beijing Olympics Demonstration," was organized by 25 Chinese groups in Austria and local Chinese-language media organizations.
Over 1,500 people, including Chinese expatriates and students in Austria, took part in the demonstration.
During the protest, they chanted slogans like "Safeguard unification, oppose 'Tibet independence'" and "Protest against the false information provided by Western media," and sent out sincere invitations to the Austrian people: "You are welcome to Beijing in 2008."
