Anti-Japanese protests in China

April 11, 2005

Maybe I am getting weaker as my age advances, but for some reason, I don't feel like going to the People's Republic at the moment. Turns out a couple Japanese students in Shanghai took some blows to the head after being approached by some Chinese at a restaraunt. I always kinda felt that Shanghai might be a bit above this kind of thing, as usual the government has covered up any mention of the demonstrations in the media.

BEIJING, China (CNN) -- Japan's ambassador has called on the Chinese government to take stronger measures to protect its citizens as thousands of protesters demand a boycott of Japanese products and shout anti-Japanese slogans.</p>

The protests are aimed at Japan's bid to become a permanent U.N. Security Council member and have been made more emotional by Chinese objections to how Japanese school textbooks recount Japan's 20th century military campaigns.</strong>
