Attack on Chinese Consulate

Following the attack (above)on the Chinese Consulate in Manchester, UK, on Oct. 16, the British government told a senior Chinese official the right to peaceful protest “must be respected” in the United Kingdom after he was summoned for a meeting following a demonstration outside the Chinese consulate in Manchester over the weekend.

Britain’s foreign office on Tuesday said it had “serious concerns” after a video emerged that appeared to show a brawl between protesters and consulate staff during a demonstration by Hong Kong independence activists on Sunday.

“Today we have made our view clear to the Chinese authorities: the right to peaceful protest in the UK must be respected,” said Foreign Office minister Lord Zac Goldsmith.
