"We appeal to British media agencies to end media distortion and media fabrication."

"At the time of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, we warmly welcome people from all over the world to come to our country to see, to hear, to touch the real China and to talk to the real Chinese people."

The demonstrators carried anti-distortion banners like "BBC unfair," "Stop media distortion, respect history, truth and China," and "Softkiller, don't spread hatred."

The demonstrators, through several display boards, told the truth about the March 14 riots in Lhasa, capital of China's Tibet Autonomous Region, and by comparing some original photos with the ones grafted by certain Western media organizations, revealed how some media agencies distorted the truth.

The rally was mobilized via the Internet and received enthusiastic responses from all parts of Britain.
