China's Premier Wen Jiabao has delivered a strong warning about the "urgent" need for reform, saying that without such reform, tragedies such as the Cultural Revolution could still happen. He added that he may even invite some of his critics for face-to-face talks.

As he spoke, some of those critics - also among China's poor - gathered to watch the event on a single television set in Beijing.

Damian Grammaticas was present.
