Just off Oxford Street in London, there is a quiet road - Portland Place. There are lots of embassies here, also the BBC headquarters, and the Royal Institute of British Architects. In 1875, The Qing Dynasty Empress, Dowager Cixi bought an office building here. From then on, this place has been China’s embassy.
On June 5th, 2002, a group of people appeared across the street. Since then, day and night, they have been staying there.
Why are they there day and night? What kind of effect do their actions have? Behind their quiet demeanor, what kind of people are they?
English-dubbed version of “Candlelight Across the Street” is released! Please feel free to share with family and friends! Related PostsRead More
