A pro-China rally being held in Auckland on Sunday will be ignored by
the Friends of Tibet Movement.

Organisers of the pro-China rally say they expect nearly 2000 people to
attend the rally at Aotea Square and have been told to wear red and
bring Chinese and New Zealand flags.

Movement chairman Thuten Kesang says he has no problem with people
showing their support for the Chinese government but believes Beijing is
directly influencing the demonstrations.

Police say they are not expecting any trouble but are prepared if fights
erupt.

A pro-China rally was held in Wellington on Saturday afternoon but
police say there was no trouble between China supporters and pro-Tibetans.
