A New Chinese Festival: Attack Japan Day [In Pictures]
A typical and peaceful day in China. The peaceful day in China. These people you see don't care about international relations or politics in Eastern Asia nowadays and thus can't even figure out what's on in China.
Relations between China and Japan is becoming sour due to the Diaoyu/Senkaku Island dispute. Wait, why am I talking about that thing in the news so suddenly, you, the smart reader asks?
Well, those people are not waiting in line to get to the Black Friday sales. They are waiting in line to destroy a Japanese corporation owned shopping mall:
GongAn (police) include a smiling guy who are trying to block the crowd, but ironically this protest is approved by Chinese government.
People are taking pictures from the opposite side.
The crowd finally breaks through and gets into the mall.
The following pictures are the results:
It's not only the shopping mall that got destroyed, Japanese manufactured cars such as Toyota, Honda, Subaru and so forth got randomly lynched on the streets.
Even the driver is a Chinese citizen; there is no mercy.
Crowds also assaulted the Toyota automobile dealership to express their anger.
I graduted from Jiao Tong University in China and recently immigrated to the United States. I am now working as a freelance writer, translator and sub-chef/waiter at the Golden Star Chinese restaurant. I'm a fan of Scottie Pippen and Jeremy Lin.
