Protests at Nanjing Thwarted

Because so many people seem to be complaining that the last batch of protesting Shanghai beauties weren't angry enough, here's a lady from an anti-Japanese protest in Nanjing Tokyo [ed. Thanks Bingfeng!] on Friday that's showing a lot more passion, although probably not as hot.

Worth noting is the story that this picture came with: Nanjing authorities arrested a man for planning an anti-Japanese protest.

State media reported on Monday that Chinese police have detained a netizen attempting to launch an anti-Japanese protest on May Day.

This is the strongest sign to date that China is trying to avoid a re-enactment of this month's violent anti-Japanese protests. Chinese people believe that Japan is whitewashing its history of invasion through authorizing revised textbooks, leading them to the streets in anger.

The Yangtze Evening News reports that the arrested 20-year-old male has the Internet alias YMAKELOVE [ed.: *snicker*], and had been encouraging people on a popular chat room to follow after the protesters in Beijing and Shanghai. The thousands of protesters in the two cities had thrown rocks and bottles at Japanese legations.

The newspaper also reports that he threatened to detonate car bombs at the protests, to create a stronger effect.

This man had encouraged protests in the chat room on the evenings of 19 and 20 April. Police then traced him to an Internet cafe, and arrested him in the morning of 21 April.

Police says that he left school last year for poor academic performance, and accuse him of “fabricating and broadcasting false terror messages.”

After capturing this man on Thursday, Chinese Public Security vowed to severely discipline anyone participating in unauthorized protests.

Previous, protests occurred in many major Chinese cities, lowering Sino-Japanese relations to their lowest point in decades. The Communist Party has launched an advertising campaign to encourage citizens not to hate Japanese people.

Oops sorry when I read it in Chinese it's all 'jing' so I missed that. Thanks for the tip.

The picture was from the article about the clampdown in Nanjing (see link), hence the confusion.

BTW Simon's away this week. We're a bunch of guest bloggers here to wreck this fine establishment. ;)
