Demonstrations during Wen Jiabou's visit to UK

There were 50 (according to Bloomberg) to 150 protestors (according to the Scotsman) from Falun Gong and Free Tibet groups outside the Chinese emmbassy in London yesterday. I had heard that there would also be Taiwanese independence activists, but if they were there, they were missed by the press.
The Bloomberg story quotes a Free Tibet spokesman who points out that 2004 is the centenary of Britain's invasion of Tibet. There's a page about their campaign for an apology from the UK government on their site.
