Overnight, a laser light display was used to project the slogans “Don’t torch Tibet” and “One Dream: Peace in Tibet” onto one of the bridge’s pylons. Paul Bourke from the Australia Tibet Council said the display was designed to protest a plan to carry the Olympic torch through Tibet, saying it had nothing to do with sport.

“It is a blatant political manoeuvre by the Chinese leadership to symbolically cement and legitimise their control over the region,” he said.
