The Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao was greeted by Pro-Tibet protests on February 1st in London, UK. Jiabao was welcomed at the Chinese embassy in London around midday by pro Tibet protestors, five of whom were later arrested. The Chinese premier was due to give a talk at the Natural History Museum in London later in the evening were a smaller group of protestors had gathered by 6PM. Jiabao arrived on Chinese (Lunar) New Year in London, a full day of celebration around Leicester and Trafalgar Square, where China Town was overwhelmed by tourists and local alike, braving rather freezing conditions. The Chinese premier will be in London for 3 days on a busy schedule, which should coincidently be followed by protest along his route, as reported by demonstrators.
