Minutes into an address at the Australia-China Relations Institute at the University of Technology Sydney, Mr Xiao was interrupted by protesters on Friday.

"What about freedom of expression." Anti-Chinese Communist Party activist Drew Pavlou was removed from the event, after holding up a sign which read "Free Tibet". The university cut the online feed of the address several times during the interruptions. Australian Associated Press Sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date.
