Demonstration in support of Tibet outside Canada's Parliament Building, Ottawa 17 January 1984, 1984-01-17
Scope and Contents
The Chinese Premier Zhoa Ziyang, with an accompanying delegation, spent 10 days in the United States and 7 in Canada in January 1984. He visited Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver, but his visit was the occasion for a number of demonstrations against various aspects of China's policy. In Ottawa, where he was the first Communist leader to address Parliament, one MP remained seated during applause after his speech and the demonstrators in the photograph held the flag of Tibet as well as placards protesting against Chinese occupation of their country. A copy of Canada Newsfacts is filed with the photograph.
