Chinese, Uyghurs, Tibetans and supporters protest at London Book Fair 2012
On the opening day of the 2012 London Book Fair, Liu Binjie, head of GAPP, cancelled his conference speech due to protests. The speech, including the punctuation, was read out on his behalf. The Chinese chair of the conference said: 'We've spent money renting this venue. I hope the organizers can be responsible for the money we've spent.'
