Thousands of Chinese expatriates and students from all across Germany staged a peaceful demonstration in Berlin on Saturday, to protest against the biased news coverage of the recent riots in Tibet and voice their support for the Beijing Olympics.

Nearly 3,000 people participated in the march, beginning from Berlin's famed downtown Friedrichstrasse railway station to the Potsdamer Platz, a landmark square for the capital city.

The rally was among a wave of protests by overseas Chinese across the world in the wake of widespread biased news reports on the March 14 riots in Lhasa, capital of China's Tibet Autonomous Region, by many Western media groups, including German broadcasters and newspapers.

During the rally, the protesters held banners such as "Tibet was, is and will be a part of China" and "Boycotting Olympics = New Berlin Wall," and sang patriotic songs.

Over the past month, overseas Chinese in Germany and other countries have been irritated by some Western media organizations for their strongly biased coverage of the riots in Lhasa.

They also felt hurt when the Olympic torch relay was repeatedly disrupted in London, Paris and San Francisco by "pro-Tibet independence" activists.
