More than 200 overseas Chinese in Norway demonstrated here on Friday to protest against the Nobel Committee's decision to confer this year's Nobel Peace Prize to Liu Xiaobo, a convicted Chinese criminal.

The organizers said the overseas Chinese, who joined the demonstration near Oslo city hall despite cold weather, were from 13 Chinese communities.

The protestors held banners reading "Liu Xiaobo Is A Criminal!""No Meddling in China's Internal Affairs!" "Peace Prize = Political Tool!" "Opposition to Nobel Peace Prize to Liu Xiaobo" and "Oppose The Wrong Decision By The Norwegian Nobel Committee", chanting slogans such as "China has contributed to world peace!"

A Norwegian man also took part in the protest, holding a banner reading "Liu Xiaobo did nothing to peace!"

Ma Lie, president of Norway Association for Promoting Peaceful Reunification of China, said the Nobel Committee made a wrong decision to confer the prize to Liu, noting it should not intervene in China's domestic affairs and hoping the committee can really understand the notion of world peace.

On Nov. 29, representatives of overseas Chinese in Norway handed an open letter to Geir Lundestad, secretary of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, strongly protesting the awarding of this year's Nobel Peace Prize to Liu.

Liu was sentenced to 11 years in prison for engaging in activities aimed at overthrowing the government.
